About Corporate Responsibility at Avon

In 1886, Avon Founder David H. McConnell committed his company "to meet fully the obligations of corporate citizenship by contributing to the well-being of society and the environment in which it functions." Today, these words are still central to our business and our success at Avon Products, Inc.

This is the company that puts mascara on lashes and food on tables. That fights wrinkles with one hand and breast cancer with the other. That knows the value of a perfect lip, but still opens its mouth and speaks out against domestic violence and for women's financial independence. We're the company that not only brings beauty to doors, but also opens them. The company that supports six million independent Avon Sales Representatives in over 100 countries. The company that for more than 125 years has stood for beauty, innovation, optimism and, above all, for women. We are Avon.

Avon Breast Cancer Crusade

Avon Breast Cancer CrusadeThe Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, which launched in 1992, has placed Avon and the Avon Foundation for Women at the forefront of the fight against breast cancer. Today, Avon is the leading corporate supporter of the cause globally. Our six million Avon independent Sales Representatives around the world not only raise funds for breast cancer programs, but also provide a global army of educators, offering information and raising awareness around the world.
