Everyone has heard the name Avon at some point in their lives, but does everyone know how Avon got its start? Please tell us how and when this iconic company was born.
Avon was born as the California Perfume Company in 1886 and founded by bookseller David H. McConnell. But he didn’t set out to create a beauty company. He was a travelling book salesperson who offered beauty products as a gift. He soon realized customers were more interested in the free perfume samples than the books. From a small New York City office, McConnell mixed Avon’s first fragrances himself, and recruited a team of women to be sales Representatives. This visionary founder launched the business with the revolutionary concept that women could earn an independent income. Since Avon’s founding in 1886, we have stayed true to McConnell’s principles "to meet fully the obligations of corporate citizenship by contributing to the well-being of society and the environment in which it functions." Avon’s commitment to providing women with opportunities for economic independence has remained strong decade after decade.
Is there a meaning behind the name Avon?
The California Perfume Company was rebranded in 1939 honoring the home of David H. McConnell’s favorite playwright William Shakespeare who was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in England.
Many can remember their mother’s Avon lady and the catalogue filled with skincare and cosmetics to order from. How has the transition from everyone needing an Avon Rep to order their products changed to meet today’s modern technology?
Our Avon Representatives continue to be at the heart of Avon. Avon’s iconic brochure is still around and our Representatives and their customers love it. A lot of Representatives continue to sell through the paper brochure and meet with customers in person. However, Avon has definitely transformed digitally. We now have an interactive digital brochure that is a fabulous tool for our Representatives. We also have AR technology so customers can try on all our makeup shades digitally and find the right match. Our Representatives also have online stores so their customers can shop digitally and have their orders shipped directly to them. We also recently launched Avon Live Shopping where customers can connect, interact and shop from the comfort of their home and mobile device.
