AVON - FROM CALIFORNIA PERFUMES COMPANY TO COSMETICS ONLINE STORES - SUCCESS STORY
Did you know that Avon was established at the end of the 19th century (1886) by David H. McConnell. He noticed, while selling books door-to-door, that small perfume samples added as a free gift to boost his sales earned more interest than the main merchandise. With a little help from a pharmacist, David created his own fragrances. By 1887 his net started to grow and 12 ladies were selling eighteen perfumes directly to customers. At this point we need to mention the first Avon's lady on the road - Mrs P. F. E. Albee - who also became the first Avon's coach. The number of happy customers and consultants was continuously growing and in 1939 the company changed the name to Avon. Today we talking about millions of consultants all over the globe and just as many Avon's cosmetics fans and despite of the presence of big cosmetics brands Avon is still on the top of the list in sales. Did you know that Avon put a stop to animal testing in 1982? All Avon products are 100% genuine, directly from the factory in Poland.
