Avon Withdraws from U.S. DSA

Sep 12, 2014

NEW YORK, September 12, 2014 - Avon has made the decision to withdraw from the U.S. Direct Selling Association (DSA) based on our belief that in the U.S. the DSA is not advocating effectively for Avon and our Representatives. We are committed to direct selling in the U.S. and markets around the world. Avon’s number one priority is supporting our 6 million Representatives worldwide. We succeed when they succeed.
