The participants at the U.S. Direct Selling Association’s Business & Policy Conference a few weeks ago listened to an important speech.
The speech was given by the Federal Trade Commission’s Chairwoman Edith Ramirez. It was dedicated to the FTC vs Herbalife Settlement and more importantly, how the Commission would take it from there.
Highlights From What Edith Ramirez Said
Natura is a Brazilian cosmetics direct seller that was established in 1969. It is definitely not a newcomer. However, mostly because its operations were focused only in Brazil for many years, it is not as known as the world’s other larger direct selling companies.
However, it is the 8th largest player in the global industry as of 2015 year-end. Last year, Natura’s total sales was more than USD 2.4 billion. To compare, Natura’s sales volume is higher than companies’ like Tupperware, Nu Skin, Oriflame, Jeunesse or USANA that are familiar names to many.
Direct selling generated 183.7 billion in global retail sales in 2015, a new record for the channel, according to the newest estimates from the World Federation of Direct Selling Associations.
