Celebrating 20 Years of Product Innovation

Groundbreaking research and constant innovation have kept Young Living at the forefront of the wellness industry for 20 years. From the very beginning, Founder and CEO D. Gary Young has made it his priority to create and develop products that improve quality of life through natural means. Two of our products in particular, NingXia Red® and Thieves® essential oil blend, stand as popular examples of the innovation that Young Living strives for every day.

Constant Improvement with NingXia Red

Years before NingXia Red was introduced, Young Living created an antioxidant powerhouse drink known as Berry Young Juice. Offering the powerful benefits of the Ningxia wolfberry, Berry Young Juice became an instant hit among members. However, never satisfied with a product that is simply good enough, Gary continued tinkering and testing and worked with our Research and Development team to create a brand-new drink featuring the same goodness of the Ningxia wolfberry: NingXia Red! In its present form, NingXia Red includes pure wolfberry puree; five tasty juices: blueberry, pomegranate, plum, cherry, and aronia; as well as four essential oils: Orange, Lemon, Yuzu, and Tangerine.

Innovation through Integration of Thieves Essential Oil Blend

Thieves essential oil blend, first developed in the 1990s, combines Clove, Rosemary, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, and Eucalyptus Radiata essential oils for perhaps the most popular blend in Young Living history. However, its formulation was only the beginning of our Thieves innovations. The unique properties of these specially chosen essential oils inspired our development experts to ask a simple question: Why can’t more products be infused with this unique and powerful oil combination? That question has led to an entire line of products containing Thieves essential oil blend: Household Cleaner, Spray, Wipes, Waterless Hand Purifier, Foaming Hand Soap, Bar Soap, and Lozenges, as well as an entire medicine cabinet’s worth of toothpastes, floss, and mouthwash. This outward branching of Thieves into other useful products is just another example of our innovation at work.
