Avon Products Inc. is an American-British multinational cosmetics company and a direct-selling giant with over 6 million independent representatives worldwide and over $9 billion estimated annual revenue. The company deals in various beauty products, from cosmetics to perfumes, skincare, personal care, and anything in between.

Avon was founded in 1892 under the name of California Perfume Company by David H. McConnell. The name was changed to Avon in 1939, and the company moved from just selling perfumes to listing numerous toiletry products, including rouge, toilet waters, powder, etc.

Over the next few decades, Avon saw rapid growth and expanded to over 100 countries. Currently, Avon is the second largest direct-selling company in the world and is owned by The Natura&Co, with sales operations in over 54 countries.

Avon wholly relies on door-to-door selling and advertising through sales reps and brochures. Hence, the company has special training centers for their new representatives, with a small retail place where they can check and get familiar with the products.

Unlike many other direct-selling companies, Avon isn't a part of the U.S Direct Selling Association. The company left the association in 2014, claiming that "the trade group was not paying enough attention to the industry and its ethical standards are not stringent enough."

Avon has been actively participating in numerous awareness and charity campaigns. Since 1992, the company has been at the forefront of fighting breast cancer, a staunch advocate for young women's empowerment, and feeding and looking after the needy.

Avon sells everything that is there in the beauty and general self-care space, from cosmetics to supplements and anything in between, appealing to masses of consumers. While it'll take hours to go through everything Avon sells, the following are their mass-appealing categories that are on the priority list of every sales rep and consumer: 


Avon's skincare line is one of the best in the beauty world, having a wide variety of products. The top-selling product from this category is Belif Aqua Bomb, which has also bagged the 2022 Girl's Life Beauty Award for the brand. Another prominent product from the category is Green Goddess facial oil, which has also won the 2020 Best New Beauty Award, beating hundreds of products. 


Avon's makeup line is another category that constitutes a huge chunk of its revenue. The top products from this category are Anew priming moisturizer and Cashmere Essence Lip Cream, both credited for winning numerous awards for the company in 2020 and 2021 successively. 


This category is targeted towards both men and women and includes all the essential supplements and oils individuals need daily to maintain their health, as well as their overall aesthetics.

Avon's Compensatin Plan Type is Breakaway

The breakaway plan is used by Avon to organize their groups of representatives. In a breakaway plan, also commonly referred to as "a plan within a plan," the Avon representatives are paid in two different ways depending on if they have reached a "breakaway rank".

Once a Avon leader reaches the breakaway rank, she and her downline form a new unit where she will earn commission based on the rules for her rank. Some compensation plans have multiple breakaway groups that are formed as the representative hits the rank goals. This is often referred to as a stairstep breakaway plan.

Considerations When Choosing a Beauty Product Direct Selling Company

Choosing the right beauty and cosmetic direct selling company may feel daunting. Here are a few tips to consider when making your decision:

Do Your Research - Before selecting direct selling makeup companies, do thorough research on the company's background and other details. Check out its history and how long it has existed, its success rate, and customer reviews.

Business Strategy - Next, you need to check what marketing strategy the direct selling company uses and its effectiveness. Most direct selling companies use more than one marketing strategy. With this, you can predict the success rate of its products.

Products Offered - This step helps you decide whether a direct selling company's product is a good fit for you. Check out their current list of products and determine how well they meet your potential customer's needs and requirements.

Expected Income - Another factor, which is also very important, is to find out how much you will earn if you finally decide to work with them. Are you going to be making profits or losing?

Compensation Plans - Before choosing a direct selling makeup company, considering their business opportunity and what you will need to do to grow your business, is as important as finding out how much you will make. Usually, every new member should have the same opportunity as older members to attain higher levels. So, you should find out the requirements for each level and how much discount and bonuses you would be earning.
