Business structures in Russia have become more “Westernized.” While the communist government still holds a strong hand in how business operates, business owners have been given greater leeway as long as the government is also profiting.
Many Russian entrepreneurs have found that a direct sales, network marketing and/or multilevel marketing business structure can be more cost effective and highly profitable.
In today’s post, we are going to tell you the top 10 MLM companies in Russia. I will start with #10 and work up to the #1 MLM company. If you may be interested in starting a home based MLM business, I am putting links to the company websites in the reference section at the end.

#10: Siberian Health
It all started in 1996 when 2 young entrepreneurs founded Siberian Health in Novosibirsk, Russia.
Siberian Health grew to huge popularity and now operates all around the world.
#9: Forever Living
Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, Forever Living Products has high quality products made from Aloe Vera and also from bee pollen.
This MLM company has become popular all over the world and Russia is included.
They have Russian offices and a website in Russian. And there are many home based Forever Living business owners in Russia.
The company was founded in 1978.
This German direct sales company was founded in 1883.
They have a huge range of products and brands and Russia is enamored by many of them. The biggest sellers are the housewares like mixers, vacuum cleaners and products like those.
#7: Organo Gold
Bernardo Chua and Shane Morand founded the ganoderma mushroom infused coffee company called Organo Gold in 2008.
Headquartered in Canada, this MLM company has their feet in nearly every continent.
Not long ago, Organo Gold started operating in Russia and the people are flocking to both buy the ganoderma coffee and also become representatives.
When Earl Tupper founded this company using his plastic kitchen storage, I would bet he never would have thought it would sell in Russia. After all, the year was 1948 and most Americans had strong views against Communism and businesses would not dare sell to Russians.
But times have changed drastically. Now Tupperware is loved in the Soviet Union and there are many who use the Tupperware brand. The people use Tupperware to save their leftover Borscht.
Founded in 1980, Herbalife manufactures and sells weight loss dietary supplements and other items.
This MLM company is located in Los Angeles, California but can be found in all corners of the world. I honestly wonder if the Space Shuttle doesn’t have an Herbalife representative on it.

The Swedish high quality cosmetic MLM company called Oriflame is extremely popular in Russia.
Started in 1967 by Jonas af Jochnick and Robert af Jochnick, it really is no surprise that Russian women fell in love with this MLM company.
#3: Mary Kay
I believe Mary Kay Ash is probably looking down from Heaven with happiness that there are now Russian representatives selling her brand of cosmetics.
The company was founded in 1963 and I would wager that no one even considered the Russian Mary Kay market at that time.
Did I just see a Hot Pink Cadillac driving past the Kremlin?
Of course Amway is in Russia!
One of the most massive MLM companies in the world started operating in Russia in 2005.
So if in Russia, you can get your Nutrilite vitamins or Amway energy drinks from one of the many Russian Amway home based business owners.
Amway came close to #1, but not close enough.
дзынь-дзынь. Avon Calling
It says ding dong in Russian and you will probably see and hear it a lot in Moscow and other Russian towns and cities.
Avon products… Personal care, cosmetics and fragrances are loved in Russia. The prices are fair and it is an easily managed business.
Avon is now headquartered in London, so Russia is not far.
There you have the top 10 MLM companies in Russia.
I would love to hear any and all opinions.
Thanks for stopping in and please share this with others.
