Avon’s 125-years of heritage in direct selling and our commitment to make Avon Members dreams come true – is real. Our dedication to supporting women touches not only beauty…but also health self-empowerment and financial independence.
Women have been selling Avon since 1886, the year the now-famous direct selling method was pioneered. Avon Members– men and women – now number almost six million, and Avon products are sold in over 100 countries around the world. Our core principles and values have guided us over the years in establishing a work environment and supplier network devoted to diversity.
The story of Avon began in New York in 1886 with a door-to-door book salesman named David H. McConnell, who often gave his female Customers a gift of perfume with their purchases. He soon found that they loved the perfume more than the books and a new business idea was born.
Avon is world-renowned for its Research & Development capabilities and widely respected as a leader in the beauty industry. Avon scientists create and evaluate nearly 1,000 products every year, and their innovative efforts have resulted in numerous technological breakthroughs, particularly in the area of anti-aging skin care.
Avon is ready to spark your language in your corner of the globe. To buy or sell Avon products in UAE one has to go through Al Hathboor International.
Al Hathboor International who has been appointed as the sole Avon distributor for the entire UAE since 1983 has carved a niche place for itself.
In 1985, we had a handful of Avon members in the country. Today we have near to 5000 and globally the count is over 6 million.
