Pharmanex is inspired by nature, powered by science. That's where we come from, and that's where we stand. It started in 1994, when Dr. Michael Chang and Dr. Joe Chang realised that many plant species are verified by science to be able to support our health and that those plants often work effectively when accompanied by other natural elements.

Why choose PHARMANEX products?

Pharmanex was founded in 1994 with the vision of improving lives through quality food supplements developed with leading science. This desire to do good made it a perfect fit with Nu Skin when it officially became a part of the Nu Skin Group in 1998. We haven't looked back since.

Today, over 30 on staff scientists lead the Pharmanex research and development team. These scientists review published clinical and scientific studies to identify botanicals that may contribute to our health. They also examine the natural, healthy processes that take place in the body and determine how nutritional supplementation can support these functions, then combine the two to create the fantastic products in our range. The results can be seen in our products, with claims that are based on evidence, not anecdote, and made with active ingredients at tested, clinically effective doses.

Scientific innovation in both personal care and nutrition has established Nu Skin as a leader in the health and beauty industries. Our proprietary product formulations and technologies enable us to set new industry standards in anti-aging, with real solutions that exhibit demonstrable results. Our team of in-house scientists illustrates our commitment to research and development. Collaborative relationships with our Scientific Advisory Board and LifeGen Technologies help us create next-generation skin care and nutritional products with an enhanced understanding of the genetic basis of aging.

We have developed our own standards for our development and manufacturing processes-we maintain quality, efficacy, and safety controls through each and every stage to ensure unsurpassed results that meet only the highest standards and comply with all relevant government requirements. The key to this consistent quality in our products is what we call our 6S Quality Process. This process involves a set of rigorous, highly integrated activities and includes multiple layers of scientific testing and attention to detail. It requires consistent collaboration and a unified commitment to quality.

The 6S Quality Process

Quality and consistency don't just happen. It's something we work on constantly.

It first began in 1996. Dubbed the '6S Quality Process', this stringent code was applied to the development of every product to help ensure that every item in the Pharmanex range exceeded industry standards. To this day, we continue to strictly monitor Selection, Sourcing, Structure, Standardization, Safety, and Substantiation for everything we produce.

1. Selection

Nu Skin works with experts and material-suppliers around the world to gather both historical and new scientific insights about the unique ingredients or components within our products and devices.

2. Sourcing

Once we select a material, our experts travel the globe to investigate potential commercial sources. 

3. Specification

We set strict specifications to provide a basis for active compounds, ingredients, and criteria for finished products.

4. Standardization

Raw materials must meet our specifications to certify their readiness for product manufacturing. Once manufactured, our products are tested to meet their finished good specifications.

5. Safety

We adhere to high product safety standards by reviewing scientific literature and conducting standard safety studies.

5. Substantiation

We take great care to ensure that our products and ingredients are not only safe, but effective.

Throughout our company history, we believe our focus on scientific innovation has made Nu Skin a leader in the nutritional and personal care industries. Our 6S Quality Process helps us address the many variables that can affect the safety and efficacy of personal care and nutritional products. With this insight, we can continue to expand our proprietary anti-aging science into the future as we develop innovative products to help people live younger longer.



The Pharmanex BioPhotonic Scanner is a unique tool that non-invasively measures carotenoids levels in skin tissues using the long-accepted science of Raman Spectroscopy. By simply placing the palm of your hand in front of the Scanner's low-energy blue light, you will obtain your Skin Carotenoid Score (SCS) within seconds.

Depending on your dietary habits, supplementation and the capacity of your body to absorb carotenoids, your individual SCS may vary. Once you know your SCS, it is time to improve it by doing the following:

  • Act on your diet by eating at least 5 to 10 servings of carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetables each day.
  • Take care of yourself by applying a healthy dietary lifestyle.
  • Supplement with the Scanner certified products, Lifepak+, ageLOCĀ® Youth, G3, Eye Formula and Beauty Focus Collagen+. They are certified to help provide your body with an adequate amount of carotenoids.
