As we celebrate our anniversary and 135 years of beauty, we honor our founder David H. McConnell – a pioneer, a visionary and a champion of empowering women through economic opportunity. And his mission is as relevant today as it was in 1886. From the first bottle sold by the California Perfume Company 135 years ago to the newest super-trending makeup and skin care, take a look at the Avon story and how we continue to make life beautiful.
60 Years of Skin So Soft
Soft skin is always in. Since its launch in 1961, Skin So Soft Bath Oil has left millions with touchably soft skin. Our luxurious bath oil is designed to act like skin’s natural oils to keep skin hydrated before and after a bath or shower. This customer fave was Avon’s #1 product for decades and continues to be a best seller today. Within the iconic Skin So Soft brand is Bug Guard, with America’s #1 DEET-free repellent. Our signature bug repellents help repel a broad range of biting insects and some help protect skin from the sun.
