Our Brands
Avon Color is Avon’s flagship global color cosmetics brand which offers a variety of color cosmetics products, including foundations, powders, lip, eye and nail products. Avon Color’s palettes contain shades that suit the skin tones of women of all ethnicities.

Anew is the world’s leading mass market anti-aging skin care brand offering breakthrough products infused with innovative technology at affordable prices. Avon revolutionized skin care in 1992, when it was the first company to launch an anti-aging product containing Alpha Hydroxy Acids, which was Anew Perfecting Complex for Face.

Skin So Soft is one of Avon’s best-loved brands offering a line of bath and body products for all skin types.

Skin So Soft has also expanded beyond bath and body care with the launch of products that help protect against insects. This led to the development of the Skin So Soft Bug Guard PLUS line of products that use IR 3535 in 8 DEET-free formulations that are easy to use for the whole family.
