2017 was an incredible year and together, we transformed lives, created momentum and unleashed the Disruptive by Design movement across the globe. Here’s what we did, together.
4 Product Launches
Our momentum grew even stronger with the relaunch of three of our flagship products, the Puritii™ Water Filtration System, Moa™ — including Natriix™ — and Reviive™. Each relaunch provided innovative improvements in consumer experience, ingredients and packaging. We also launched the brand-new and wildly anticipated Jouvé™ Nourishing Night Cream.
1 Meeting with Congress
We were invited by Environmental Working Group (EWG) to visit Washington, D.C. and meet with members of Congress to support the passage of the Personal Care Products Safety Act.
1 Esteemed Certification
Taking our product superiority even further, we received the Informed-Sport Certification for products within our Nutrifii™ and Slenderiiz™ lines, certifying that every supplement and raw material has passed a rigorous certification process and is made with the highest quality standards.
18,000 Attendees at ARIIX Events Around the World
We hosted more than 10 events around the world in Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Europe and the U.S., where 18,000+ ARIIX Representatives joined together to celebrate, collaborate and experience the true ARIIX culture.

We recognized 32,871 title advancements, four new Founders Club Members — Dr. Ray Strand, Dai Zi Xian & Sun Lan Xin (QiQi), and Li Ying & Queen Ng— and the first-ever multimarket Founders Club Member, Steve and Myrna Swartz. Additionally, the Elite Awards transitioned to Power Ranking, which allows any Representative to become a top Power Ranker based on their business-building efforts.
