Welcome to Bates Beauty, part of Avon Cosmetics
Avon is a famous and iconic brand, having developed from its grassroots in California (the first factory was in New York) over 130 years ago. What started off as an unsuccessful book business has now developed into a world-wide brand with over 5 million representatives.
In 1886, David H. McConnell – a struggling book salesman – tried to persuade people to buy his books with a free gift of a rose scented perfume with each purchase. McConnell so realised that the perfume was far more popular and quickly abandoned the book business to establish his new perfume company.
The first ‘Avon Lady’ was Mrs P.F.E. Albee, she created the door-to-door approach and developing teams of Avon ladies. Direct-marketing offered women a chance to work outside the home in an era when they had few opportunities to do so.
From there, as they say, the rest is history…
