Nature’s Sunshine and its Board Members donated $50,000 to the Impact Foundation in memory of Nature’s Sunshine’s Co-Founder and Board Member, Kristine Hughes.
Kristine passed away peacefully on February 24, 2020 at the age of 81.
“Loved by her immediate family and her vast Nature’s Sunshine family, Kristine will be dearly missed, and her legacy will continue to be felt across our business,” said Nature’s Sunshine Chief Executive Officer Terrence Moorehead. “She deeply loved this company, and her personal interactions with distributors and employees forged relationships around the globe.”
Kristine’s innovative ideas and pioneering spirit were integral to the growth of Nature’s Sunshine. For nearly 48-years, she helped revolutionize the herbal and natural wellness industry and gave rise to the modern supplement industry we know today.
With her husband and family, Kristine began encapsulating herbs and selling them to health food stores. They quickly found a market for their products among a growing number of complementary and alternative healthcare practitioners across the United States, and the company blossomed, spreading to over 40 countries around the world.
Kristine’s passion for quality, integrity and service propelled the company from a small, family-owned business to a multi-million dollar global enterprise helping to share the healing power of nature with the world.
“Kristine dedicated her life to helping others discover greater vitality and opportunity through Nature’s Sunshine,” said Moorehead. “We will continue to honor her life and memory through our efforts to share nature’s healing power with the world.”
