The founders of Amway began selling Nutrilite products in 1949. Amway bought a controlling interest in the company in 1972, and took over complete ownership in 1994.
Nutrilite's vitamin and mineral products are distributed exclusively by Quixtar affiliates known as Independent Business Owners (IBO) in North America and Amway IBOs in more than 90 other countries and territories. Amway, Quixtar, and Access Business Group, are subsidiaries of Alticor. Nutrilite claims to be the only global vitamin and mineral brand to grow, harvest and process plants on their own certified organic farms, although Nutrilite states that their products may sometimes have ingredients from plants grown not at their own farms. Nutrilite farming techniques include soil solarization, an integrated pest management system and utilize sustainable agricultural production systems. Nutrilite's organic farms are located in California, Washington State, Mexico, and Brazil.. Many Nutrilite products sold in other countries are also manufactured locally, for example in India.In 2001, five Nutrilite products were the first dietary supplements to be certified by NSF International.
