Avon Products, Inc. and Consumer Safety: Fragrances and Fragrance Ingredients

Click here for a pdf of this statement.

At Avon Products, Inc. a fundamental principle is to ensure that all products, including those that contain fragrances, are safe for consumer use. Fragrance ingredients are evaluated for safety prior to their use in consumer products. Various associations, including the International Fragrance Association (IFRA) and the Research Institute for Fragrance Materials (RIFM), develop, review and disseminate scientific data on the safe use of fragrance ingredients.

Avon has established fragrance guidelines that carefully limits the type of ingredients used, as well as the amounts and manner in which they are used in a cosmetic product. Avon only uses fragrances at concentrations and conditions which have been shown to be safe. We are confident that Avon products, when used as intended, do not present a health risk to the consumer.

As with all products, personal preference plays a role in determining the product of choice, including fragrance. Regardless of individual preferences, the safety of all Avon products, including those that are fragranced, is always the first priority. Avon products have been, and will continue to be, safe for consumers in the more than 100 markets in which we do business.

Consumers can be assured that any cosmetic, personal care or fragrance product that carries the Avon name has undergone thorough safety evaluation and can be used with the utmost confidence.
