Avon manufactures many cosmetic products in China in an Avon-owned and operated facility. We maintain the same strict control over Avon’s China facility as we do with all our manufacturing sites throughout the world.
As one of the world’s leading beauty companies, operating for 125 years, consumer safety is Avon’s number-one priority. We are committed to selling only safe products, using only safe ingredients in our cosmetics products, and complying with applicable regulations in every country in which Avon products are sold.
The safety of every Avon product must be substantiated prior to introduction and sale to consumers. Every ingredient and product must be approved for safety prior to the product being sold, and every one of our manufacturing facilities is required to ensure that its products are manufactured in accordance with written specifications set by the Avon Research & Development Centre in the US for the raw ingredients, the manufacturing process and finished products. These products also undergo quality assurance testing.
All Avon products worldwide comply with the requirements of governing bodies. Our products only contain approved substances at their specified levels of use.
We continually evaluate information relevant to the safe use of ingredients. If we determined that an ingredient could no longer be considered safe, we would discontinue its use. In addition to our own safety reviews, we also consult with independent recognized experts in relevant scientific fields to ensure that our evaluations are appropriate and state-of-the-art.
Consumers can be assured that any cosmetic or personal care product that carries the Avon name has undergone thorough safety evaluation and can be used with the utmost confidence.
