In 1886, Avon Founder David H. McConnell committed his company "to meet fully the obligations of corporate citizenship by contributing to the well-being of society and the environment in which it functions." Today, these words are still central to our business and our success at Avon Products, Inc.
This is the company that puts mascara on lashes and food on tables. That fights wrinkles with one hand and breast cancer with the other. That knows the value of a perfect lip, but still opens its mouth and speaks out against gender-based violence and for women's financial independence. We're the company that not only brings beauty to doors, but also opens them. The company that supports approximately six million independent Avon Sales Representatives in over 100 countries. The company that for more than 130 years has stood for beauty, innovation, optimism and, above all, for women. We are Avon.
At Avon, we are guided by our principles and values, which are also reflected in our commitment to Corporate Responsibility. Read more about our Core Values and Principles.
