Avon have been empowering women since 1886, when David H McConnel founded the California Perfume Company. In 1939, it would become Avon, named after William Shakespeare’s home town of Stratford-upon-Avon. Avon was the first direct-marketing system ever developed and has come a long way since the days of the Avon Lady and the door-to-door selling that gave women the chance to work outside their homes, in an era when they had few opportunities to do so. Avon has grown from a small perfume company in New York into a global cosmetics and fragrance industry, with over 6 million representatives in more than 100 countries. The original product line now includes jewellery, soaps, and other household goods. In South Africa, customers can purchase Avon products through any of their many representatives and online at https://my.avon.co.za.
Avon’s popular brands include fragrances, make-up, skincare, personal care, hair care, fashion and home categories. You can browse the entire catalogue online here. In SA, Avon runs seasonal specials with an Avon book for each one. You can download these brochures here.
