What It’s About

Every child deserves a childhood free from pain. Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a devastating skin disorder that ranges in severity from mild to fatal. The Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation is working tirelessly with the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation (EBMRF) to find a cure for EB. For more information on EBMR, visit ebmrf.org.

How It Works

The Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation donates 25 cents from every Epoch® Glacial Marine Mud purchased to EBMRF. The Foundation has already gifted millions of dollars to EB research and looks forward to funding additional research. We believe we can and will find a way to provide new layers of skin to suffering children.

Who It Helps

Epidermolysis Bullosa affects as many as 100,000 children and young adults in the United States alone. Patients with EB are often referred to as “butterfly children” because of the delicate nature of their skin, which blisters or tears at the slightest touch. In addition to the donations generated by Epoch product sales, sales leaders in Korea have also donated $136,000 (USD) to EB medical research at Yonsei University Gangnam Severance Hospital.
