Natures Sunshine Products Inc is a natural health and wellness company. The Company, together with its subsidiaries is engaged in the manufacturing and direct selling of nutritional and personal care products.

Natures Sunshine Products Inc, was founded in 1972 and incorporated in Utah in 1976. The Company together with its subsidiaries is a natural health and wellness company engaged in the manufacturing and direct selling of nutritional and personal care products. The Company sells its products to a sales force of independent Managers and Distributors who use the products themselves or resell them to other distributors or customers. The Company has four business segments that are divided based on the different characteristics of their Distributor bases, selling and Distributor compensation plans and product formulations, as well as the internal organization of its officers and their responsibilities and business operations. Three business segments operate under the Nature's Sunshine Products brand (NSP Americas; NSP Russia, Central and Eastern Europe; and China and New Markets). The Company's China and New Markets segment is deploying a multi-channel go-to-market strategy that offers select Nature's Sunshine branded products through a direct selling model across China as well as through e-commerce channels. The time to market will be dependent upon regulatory processes including product registration and permit approvals. Due to a change in the Chinese regulatory environment, the Company has indefinitely deferred its entry into the retail channel in China. The China and New Markets segment also includes the Company's wholesale business, in which the Company sells its products to various locally managed entities independent of the Company that have distribution rights for the relevant market. All of the net sales revenue to date in the China and New Markets segment is through the Company's wholesale business to foreign markets outside of China detailed below. The wholesale business was previously part of NSP Americas. The fourth business segment operates under the Synergy Worldwide brand. The Company markets its products in Australia, Austria, Belarus, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Czech Republic, Denmark, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Finland, Germany, Guatemala, Honduras, Hong Kong, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Malaysia, Mexico, Moldova, Mongolia, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, Singapore, Slovenia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The Company markets its products through a wholesale model to Argentina, Australia, Chile, Israel, New Zealand, Norway, Peru and the United Kingdom. The Company's products are also regulated by the Federal Trade Commission, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the United States Department of Agriculture and the Environmental Protection Agency.
