The New Avon LLC has been one of the leading beauty brands with direct selling opportunities for over 130 years. Its founder, David H. McConnell, originally started the company in 1886 with the goal of giving women the opportunity to earn a living and provide for themselves financially. McConnell did not begin his career in the beauty and personal care industry. He was a book salesperson that gave free perfume as an incentive to women so he could sell more books when he traveled door to door. After he realized how popular the perfume was with his customers, he decided to sell just fragrance instead. When the demand for his products grew, McConnell started the company we all know now as Avon. McConnell hired his former customers as sales representatives after he noticed their love for beauty products and strong networking skills. Now the company has an extensive network of 400,000 independent sales representatives, associates, and consumers in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.
The brand’s charity, the Avon Foundation for Women, regularly donates to breast cancer research and domestic abuse victims. Although the New Avon LLC is famous for its iconic cosmetic line, the company’s leaders decided to expand their portfolio of products to include fashion and accessories. Customers can also enjoy a wider range of skincare and personal care products. To revamp their brand, the company introduced the Skin So Soft, Mark, Anew, and Avon Color product lines. Overall, the New Avon LLC will continue to develop new and innovative beauty products for women.
