To be honest I don’t know but from time to time this topic comes up with Avon. Today again a customer said to me well I would buy Avon products if they are cruelty-free and not tested on animals. I told that particular customer that not only we do not test on animals are cruelty-free, and also offer a dedicated vegan line. She did not know that, and gladly accepted a new catalog and wanted to know more.

This is what inspired me to write this new article,it is not my first on my blog here about animal welfare and vegan and cruelty-free product lines by AVON. If you have comments or questions please don’t be shy comment on my blog or Email me your questions.

A global stand against animal testing

 

Our goal is to deliver products to meet our customers’ needs without compromising our commitment to animal welfare, our high product safety standards or our adherence to regulatory requirements. By investing in how we develop innovation for China and in some cases changing distribution channels, we have been able to deliver this landmark change. Globally, none of our products will be tested on animals.

PETA

PETA celebrates Avon’s long-term commitment to ending all cosmetic testing on animals everywhere in the world, and we know millions of consumers will too. Avon’s support for non-animal testing methods has made a meaningful difference to the development, utilization, and acceptance of alternatives to animal testing.” 

Kathy Guillermo, Senior Vice President, PETA 

Humane Society International (HSI)

We support HSI’s #BeCrueltyFree campaign calling to outlaw cosmetic animal testing in key global beauty markets.

“We are delighted to count Avon among our #BeCrueltyFree campaign supporters as we work with lawmakers across the globe toward meaningful policy change that reflects our shared vision of cruelty-free beauty.”

Troy Seidle, HSI Vice President for Research & Toxicology

Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments (FRAME)

In Europe, we have partnered with FRAME for 30 years.

“FRAME is dedicated to the development of new, valid and ethical scientific methods that will replace the need for laboratory animals in medical and scientific research, education and testing. Avon’s decision to stop testing in China sends an important message to the global cosmetics industry that animal testing for cosmetics is unnecessary and unacceptable, and that we must push for global acceptance of alternative techniques that are scientifically valid and have human relevance.”

Amy Beale, Scientific Liaison Officer at FRAME

Institute for In Vitro Sciences (IIVS)

We are a founding member of IIVS’s Industry Council for the Advancement of Regulatory Acceptance of Alternatives (ICARAA), a working group that promotes specific activities designed to accelerate the adoption of non-animal methods by government agencies such as the Chinese Food & Drug Administration.

“Avon has partnered with IIVS for over twenty years to develop and utilise novel in vitro testing platforms to ensure the safety of their products. These successful approaches have been adopted by other companies in the industry. Additionally, Avon has supported the IIVS Education and Outreach programmes to promote the use and acceptance of these methods worldwide”

Erin Hill, President, IIVS

Does Avon test on animals?

No. We were one of the first companies in the world to stop animal testing 30 years ago and in 2019 became the first global beauty company* to end animal testing across all its brands** by stopping animal testing for China. Ending animal testing across our entire portfolio of brands was another step in this journey and built on our 30-year history of working to end animal testing, alongside our partners.

How does Avon ensure the safety of its products without animal testing?

The safety of our customers is of paramount importance and we substantiate the safety of our products using well established non-animal testing methods such as applying existing data, computer modelling, and in vitro testing to ensure the safety of Avon-branded cosmetics products.

What else is Avon doing?

Alongside ending animal testing across all our brands, we’re working hard to incorporate more plant, natural and synthetic based ingredients into our products without having a negative impact on our precious planet and its resources. Our Distillery range comprises vegan-friendly products composed of concentrates crafted through a rich distillery process, housed in environmentally conscious packaging.

How did Avon stop testing on animals in China when it is required by law?

We reformulated some of our products and changed other ranges, which means they don’t need to undergo animal testing in China.

Why does Avon sell in China?

We’ve been committed to ending animal testing for 30 years, but we are also committed to meeting our customers’ needs in China, growing our business there and supporting our Boutique Owners – women who are building their own businesses through selling Avon.

Why don’t Avon’s products carry a “cruelty-free” logo?

We’ve worked with organisations to drive for positive change on animal testing for 30 years, and have partnerships including the Institute for In Vitro Sciences FRAME and Humane Society International . We’re very proud to feature their logos in our materials and support their valuable work. Now that we’ve ended animal testing across all of our brands, in every country where we sell, we’ll be working towards further cruelty-free certification.

What’s next?

We’re committed to helping end animal testing on beauty products for good and for the last 30 years have been working with scientific organisations on new approaches to product safety evaluation. We’ll keep up this work and continue to work with partners towards meaningful positive change.

Today I want to specially talk to my male customers and readers about a topic that is often ignored by the hard guy’s out there. Exfoliation! Yes, you read right not talking about shaving or aftershave or how to prepare the skin for shaving – no it’s actually about taking care of your skin. Whoever is spreading rumours that’s it’s not masculine to exfoliate? Well whoever it is, I would say just ignore them. Seriously, though, I personally think that’s just stupid… The world of beauty and self-grooming has always been a little bit obscure in terms of what is a fact and what is just fiction. Let’s get clear about exfoliation and why you’ve not been getting the results you wanted.

Ok, so let’s get factful and break it down to a simplistic form. Firstly, exfoliation does not make less of a man. Fact. Any man who still abides by this nonsense is a moron, sorry to be that frank with you but sometimes it needs clear words.   I’ve worked a good number of the years around the skincare industry and from my own personal enjoyment around the subject

The Science about Exfoliating

The science bit: Exfoliation is the abrasive treatment you give your skin to improve the quality and health. There are many forms of exfoliation and methods available: mechanical, chemical, peptides, enzymes, retinols, alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids. The science and technology behind skincare is always evolving and we have such a great arsenal of methods in treating our skin. It is also important to know that over-exfoliation will cause a great deal of uncomfortable problems for your skin. It’s all about finding a balance, in the products and approaches that work for you and your skin type directly. AN EXAMPLE – Someone whose skin is prone to being more sensitive, should be limiting the amount exfoliating per week. You should steer away from coarser and more abrasive scrubs, tools & treatments. Opt for exfoliation products that are suitable for specific skin types.

The process of exfoliation can be done for the skin on your face and the skin across your body. It really is important to choose the correct product for you as this will have a huge impact on your overall outcome. What ingredients are also an important factor lads, as you are shifting the debris from your skin, not scratching or causing micro-tears. Look out for ingredients that are finely ground into a powder. Flax seeds & apricot kennels are often formulated this way to provide enough friction against the skin to slough and not cut.

It is also great to know that the skin on your face is completely different to the skin across your body. You may find you need to exfoliate the skin on your body more often, due to its increased thickness/toughness. Facial skin is incredibly thinner and with this comes easier tearing and more sensitivity. Your body however has a stronger protective barrier, that puts up with the rubbing of clothes and sheer day-to-day stress that’s thrown in its face (or body in this case). Body scrubs are generally composed of more abrasive ingredients, salt, sugar or coffee. These allow you to really work the targeted area to smooth and buff out any hardened skin.

Let’s get to the facts: Regular exfoliation is important in both facial and body regions, you’ll find: Without exfoliating, your skin becomes hardened, more congested, or both. Dead skin cells build up across the surface and this creates waves of problems towards your skin’s overall health and performance. Remember, your skin is an organ, and like your other internal organs has a functioning system. Exfoliation regularly will aid in the prevention and treatment towards, inflamed or clogged pores and body breakouts.

Turns out you can get spots anyway on your body, not just your face! I really know what I am talking about being prone to spots myself. Keep an eye on places where spots may seem to congregate more on your own body. For some its not the face, but just down the legs. I myself have experienced more across my body and head, than across my face.  So what can you do? Exfoliating away build-ups across the skin allows for fresher skin to form and grow underneath. Truth be told guys; you are shedding flakes of skin throughout the day and night! Unfortunately, there will be flakes that just sit put and become more congested over time. Shifting these dead skin cells from your face allows for increased cell turnover. Something important towards skin function and performance – Each day and night you shed skin flakes naturally, so much just on the side of things.

Those that don’t shed, sit and congest in areas across your skin. Without shifting these dead cells, your skin cannot receive oxygen and therefore its natural turnover becomes hindered. – Acne is prevented, along with blackheads and whiteheads. By regulating the exfoliation process you’re more likely to have skin that is freer these imperfections because bacteria won’t have more options for homes across your skin. – Your skin tone will become more even. With patience and the correct tools at your disposal, skin imperfections may be treated to give you results that leave you feeling more confident. Scarring, rough texturing, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and ingrown hairs are amongst some common skin problems that can be treated. You can work towards retexturing your skin’s surface to be and feel softer. – You’ll find other skin products aren’t able to penetrate your skin deeper and more proficiently. I’m talking about those potent and luxury serums, essences and oils. You’ll be shocked to know that you could be getting more from each one of these if your skin is regularly exfoliated. If you have problems with blackheads I recommend the blackhead remover from us to use in addition to the regular exfoliating regime.

These types of products (which are bloody brilliant & my favourite part) have been scientifically created to delve deeper into the skins layers and travel to the core (where your skin cells are located). They’d have a tougher time reaching their end goal if the skin was blocked unnecessarily… Do you see what I am getting at? I don’t want to pay hundreds of pounds to only have my serum give me a lacklustre performance towards my skin. Neither should you!! – Your skins circulation and lymphatic drainage is boosted. Going on what we said about your skin’s natural turnover. When you exfoliate you allow newer skin to form and grow in its place. Slugging off dead skin allows oxygen-rich blood to find its way to the surface. This then helps to give you a complexion that appears fuller in colour. Side by side lymphatic drainage is also stimulated by the movements created by regular exfoliating.

You essentially help the circulation in and around your skin, which leads to a fresher, brighter and natural glow in your complexion. – Lastly, in a nutshell, it leaves you cleaner and feeling fresher. Have you ever visited London on a day out and gotten home, only to realise you can feel London on your skin? Just me? Exfoliation extracts all the nasties that hide in and on your skin, to leave you with a clear base to work upon. In the process, over time your skin’s complexion bounces back, is retextured, better circulated and visibly more different. – You are manly status doesn’t change after you exfoliate.

It all works like a ripple effect really you guys. By not exfoliating you are allowing your skin to be lackluster, less hydrated, and therefore increase the accumulation of dead skin cell build-up. Overall, your complexion will look a bit ‘meh’. So, it makes sense to actually get into the habit of doing it regularly. Otherwise, you’d be a right fool not to be.

THE BODY SHOP, AVON & NATURA ISO 27001 CERTIFIED COMPANIES LEAKED DATA OF 250,000 CUSTOMERS

Just an update from MyBeautyKing on our partner AVON Cosmetics and their recent Cyber Attack on their systems.

Specialists in a cyber security course have reported a new incident involving the personal information of millions of people. A multibillion-dollar company based in Brazil exposed highly sensitive information (personal and financial data) of its customers. According to the reports, the exposed information was hosted in poorly configured databases, making them available to any user.

The company in question, Natura & Co Group, is composed of a global cosmetics production and sales group with a presence in more than 70 countries. This corporation owns firms such as Aesop, Avon, and The Body Shop.

Experts in the cyber security course mention that the data breach involves two databases with more than 190 million records each. One of the exposed deployments stores information equivalent to 1.3 TB, while the second database contained 272 GB.

Thanks to a leaked report, the cybersecurity community was able to learn that more than 250,000 Natura customers have been affected by the data breach. It was also revealed that at least 40 thousand records of Wirecard’s mobile internet communications accounts (MOIPs) were also exposed. Among the information compromised are details such as:

  • Full name
  • Home address
  • Email address
  • Gender
  • Date and place of birth
  • Phone number
  • Purchase history
  • MOIP account details
  • Username and nickname
  • Access token for wirecard.com.br
  • API credentials that include unencrypted passwords
  • Natura.com.br login credentials including hash passwords

The incident was not limited to Natura’s customers. Soon after, experts in the cyber security course confirmed that the data breach also compromised confidential details about the company’s IT infrastructure. “The compromised server contained API logs from the Natura website, so all the information from the production server was exposed,” the experts mention. In addition, the leak also exposed the names of some Amazon buckets, which store PDFs related to agreements between the company and other parties. 

The International Institute of Cyber Security (IICS) recommends that Natura customers consult the company on the measures being taken to address this issue because, due to the nature of the information compromised, they could be exposed to phishing campaigns or identity fraud.

For security, customers should be wary of malicious emails, as well as avoid sharing their personal data online. In these cases it is common for firms to offer identity and banking fraud protection services, although Naturia has not made any more official returns. 

Are you affected?

Only time can tell. We don’t know the full extent of the breach yet. The fact is that all of Avon’s Systems are down and that world-class IT and security specialists are working on them right now. As usual all affected customers, agents and staff will be notified as soon as more details become available. 

How does this affect MyBeautyKing and MyBK customers?

MyBeautyKing customers are not at all affected by this data security breach! We use very good security off and on-site to prevent exactly those things from happening, so I can assure all of my customers that all the data with MyBeautyKing are safe and secure. However, this breach affects the current trading of MyBeautyKing in such a way as we are currently unable to place orders or track deliveries. So any order you place with us at the moment is going to be delayed and it is impossible to say for how many days or weeks this delay is going to happen. all we can say that for the past 10 days it is impossible for us to place new orders, track deliveries or process refunds and returns on the Avon Website.

Get your AVON Business Online, a simple to follow how-to guide by me Mark Pammesberger, Avon Sales Leader. If you are stuck in the process, and need any help in bringing your website up, please feel free to contact me.

Start with Social Media  

First of all I recommend that you set-up and start your own Social Media Accounts if you don’t already have them. Get a Facebook Fan Page, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube account setup. This is what I would recommend to start with. Take the same name all over the place, like in my case it was mybeautyking. Try to have the same Twitter account name as your domain name is going to be. So if your domain is Tim-Sample.co.uk get a twitter account called Tim-Sample of if that is taken go for Tim-Sample.co.uk, this is the first point and you should not need more than a day to complete that.

Get Web Hosting and Domain

Now, that you have your social media accounts set up and running, get your web hosting and domain name. Find a domain name that is unique and reflects what you want to do. I choose MyBeautyKing because I’m a man selling Avon and I am a professional make-up artist. So find something unique to you. Web hosting does not need to be expansive, you can go with a well known hosting company and pay more or with a small one that is cheaper. I would recommend the Entry Hosting Package here that only costs £ 0.99 per month or if you want something with more power that also includes an intuitive CMS then this plan here is more for you that costs only £5.99 per month and includes the Divi Sitebuilder and the Divi License. This is what I personally use to build this website. The domain name is not included in the price but that is only another £10 to £20 for the whole year so not too expansive. 

If you go with any other hosting company make sure to use a WordPress optimized hosting package, and do not take a ready-made e-commerce solution from 1&1 or GoDaddy, but this we will cover at a later point. Now that you have your web hosting and domain set up it is time to start building your website. I would suggest to start at the beginning, all you need really is a homepage, a contact form and the legal bits like privacy, terms and conditions, shipping page to get started the rest you can add later. Don’t do everything at once do it step by step. I would also recommend an about us section to tell the customer who you are.

 

What Online Store to use and why

Running your own online shop independent of Avon has advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are clearly you are independent and if Avon is down you can keep selling. You can also run Google Ads, Facebook Ads promote one single product or your whole shop on Instagram while always linking back to your shop. That is something you can not do at the Avon Store. If you link to a product on the Avon Store and the customer clicks on it you will lose the sale. 

The disadvantage is that you have to put work in. Each campaign update the offers, add and remove colors that are no longer on offer or become unavailable, or simply add the new products. But this will soon become a routine task when you are getting used to using your online shop. You can also set your own independent promotions at any time. TIPP: If you don’t want to update the prices all the time, no one says you have to have the same prices as Avon in their webstore, at the end you are an independent representative.

So now to the shop options there are several FREE Shop software options you can consider and I think wor well with Avon. Those listed below are free shop software programs you can install on any web hosting package.

Prestashop is well developed and works fine, as stand-alone website and pages, you do not need WordPress to have Prestashop. You can simply add a page in your Prestashop and add the content. There are several professional templates you can purchase that look great, for the start I would go for the free standard layout. The design you can change later at any time.

WooCommerce is a very nice piece of kit and there are a lot of free and paid extensions for it. WooCommerce integrates fully into your WordPress website and adapts the design you have. If you use DIVI there are a lot of ways to integrate a product, category, or the whole shop into a DIVI Layout and therefore make it look really like a one page fully themed experience. You can install woocommerce from your WordPress platform just go to Plugins in WordPress and type in woocommerce. It is personally my second choice, and very easy to handle.

ECWID is personally my favorite and this is what I have used to build the shop with. Ecwid is not free but a monthly subscription so it will cut into your budget considerably with at least £42 per month but there is a free plan they offer for 10 products. However I found that this shop is best suited for me as it allows you to sell on your Facebook Page, Instagram Page, eBay or Amazon account with the push of a button. There is a set of free add one that is useful, and there is a lot of other paid addons and added subscription services. The advantage is that they have a very helpful support if you need it and if you are like me you will need it a lot at the beginning. So if you use WordPress to build your website then I would personally recommend that you use ECWID.

Next Step setup billing and payment options

Your next step is to set up your billing and payment options for your shop. Use whatever you like. I use standard options such as bank transfer credit and debit card and PayPal. If you use PayPal make sure to use a business and not a personal account. For payment processing using credit and debit card I recommend SQUARE  Square works with all online shop platforms and is easy to set up it only takes several minutes to set up and is very easy to use.  I use square in my own online shop for card purchases. You can also use STRIPE that is also very good for processing cards and as easy to setup. 

I also offer my customers to pay by card when I visit them in person for this I use SUM-UP, do not get the square reader as it is more expansive then sumup I have covered the sum-up payments in another blog post last year when I started using it. You can find it here

 

Shipping and Delivery

Here is something to consider. While your shop with Avon only allows you to ship to customers in the UK and Northern Ireland, with your own shop you are free to ship worldwide. That is a big advantage as I have customers now all over the world and they are happy to order with me. You need however to plan this ahead of time.

What you can use, is Store Pickup that I have renamed to Representative Delivery, which is always set to be free in my local area. I have set another option called Customer Pick up that is also free when a customer wants to come to me to pick it up. This is a very good option to get rid of extra stock when they visit your home and see things they might like.

then I have as I use ECWID, Royal Mail Plugin, that allows me to offer Royal Mail delivery and is automatically calculated in your shop, and besides that, I personally set up an account with DHL to do express and worldwide delivery. this is not needed when you first start but might come in handy as they pick up the boxes from your home and DHL is also automatically calculated from inside the shop so nothing you need to do there just enter your account details and you are set to go.

TIPP: Offer FREE Delivery! I found that this increases my conversion rate. I offer FREE Delivery to the UK when orders reach £20 or to the EU for £50 or Worldwide £100. The customer sees that in his shopping cart it is reminding him to spend x amount more to get free shipping to his destination.

BASICS are done

Now you are done with the basics, you can start on your products… Don’t rush things take your time and make it as professional as possible, people will like it and you can improve and add stuff later. 

Time to add products

Now, this is the thing that will take up most of your time. Pro tip: So my suggestion is to start with one category and expand from there. Whenever you have finished a category go to the next. If you start your online shop in campaign 10 for example, and it takes several campaigns to finish, do not change books. Keep the campaign 10 book until you are finished, otherwise you will get confused and start all over again.

First things first.

You go to the Avon Website, let’s say to the Shower gel section and start at the very top of the page going to one product at a time. You will save the picture to your hard disk, copy and paste the product name and description, the weight of the product is always the size, and add the price and order number from the book. Remember to keep the same book until you are finished to avoid confusion. Then add the saved picture to the product listing and your first product is finished. This you do about 2000 times…. You get it it takes a long, long time. Personally me it took 6 months to get all products online.

Save and publish

The good thing about it is that while you add your products to the store, you are already online so people can see your store, I always mentioned on the website and on my social media account that I am still in the process of building the store, and while not all products are yet there people can order everything they see on my AVON store link with me and I would send it to them. If a customer asked me for a product I would prioritize the product and add it to the store right away so he can order it with me.

So today I am doing something I usually avoid doing because I do not like to bash on other companies, their products, and their services.  Saying that I had recently been contacted by several customers of mine, saying that the Avon Planet SPA Pillow Mist in Lavender is too expansive and they have opted for a Pillow mist from other companies just because of the price. So I sat down last night, and compared the prices of Pillow Mists from other well known brands.

PILLOW MIST 

As you can see from the chart below several companies offer similar Pillow Mist products.

Why is it important?

Well a pillow mist helps you to relax and go easier to sleep. You want something that is stimulating and relaxing at the same time. Nothing affects your mood more than sleep. If you do not sleep well your whole day that is to come basically is fucked up. This is where using a pillow mist can help you improve upon.

How do you use a pillow mist

The pillow mist usage is very simple yet it creates an environment that is clean and pure getting you ready for a fabulous night sleep.

  • Spritz your pillow spray
  • Lie back and breathe in the lavender scent through your nose for 7 seconds and out through your mouth slowly for 11 seconds
  • Enjoy a deep night’s sleep and look forward to a fresh tomorrow
  • Use nightly

Conclusion

Having compared the prices and services from other known vendors using the same quality in producing the product I can clearly say that as of yesterday May 23.2020 Avon has the best offer on this product. You can buy Avon Products through my Online Shop
