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.
Innovating Skin Care
Avon has been at the forefront of skin care for decades, incorporating cutting-edge ingredients like AHAs, CBD and Vitamin C into our products. In 1992, Avon became the first beauty brand to mass-market anti-aging technology with Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) with Anew AHA Refining Cream, igniting a skin care revolution. We’ve introduced good-for-skin formulas like the Anew Vitamin C collection, featuring antioxidant vitamin C and niacinamide, known for its brightening effects, and a line of soothing and nourishing CBD skin care including facial oil and body creams. We continue to stay on top of beauty trends today—most recently, we launched skin care with bakuchiol, a natural, plant-based alternative to retinol. We focus on creating products that your skin will love, and pride ourselves on offering quality formulas that fall into the clean beauty and vegan categories.
