Maybe all of you are wondering where AVON products are made.

The company for women is the country’s largest direct seller. It started in 1978 under the name Beautifont. The company name officially changed from Beautifont by Avon to Avon Cosmetics, Inc in 1983.
At present , Avon celebrates more than 30 years of making women’s dreams come true through its beauty products, earning opportunities and others.
I was so lucky to be invited by Avon on a plant tour together with other beauty, fashion and lifestyle bloggers.
We left McDonalds in EL Pueblo (meet-up place) past 10 o’clock in the morning going to Laguna (the home of Avon Plant). That day I don’t have sleep so I decided to position myself at the back of the car. Of course “borlogs time” lolz
I don’t know what exact time we arrived in the plant but I think it’s past 12 noon. It’s really hot outside.
Upon entering the building, we were welcomed by the Avon staffs. They were very accommodating. It’s already afternoon but they greeted us “GOOD MORNING”. As their tradition, they always greet their visitors and their employees “GOOD MORNING” anytime of the day.. hmm just like in the call center
You know what! I’m the only guy who was invited on this tour. Yes you read it right..I’m the only flower on this batch lolz. Not actually because we our accompanied by male photographers. Some of the bloggers who attended on this event are my friends and familiar to me… So I’m very comfortable attending this event. And also, most of my readers are ladies so definitely they will love to read this blog. Is that right?
Before we entered the production area, we wore the laboratory gown. (sorry guys I don’t know what is that called). I felt I’m a nurse or should I say a doctor while wearing the gown..lolz
One of the things I noticed in Avon plant, the building and the production area are very clean. There’s no garbage or stain on the floor and the wall. Everything is properly set up. The raw materials and finished products are positioned on the proper place.
I also noticed the bulb bec. it’s different from the usual bulb we are using. According to our tour guide, they are using solar power on their lights. On that way, the company is not only saving money for the electricity, it also helps to our environment.
Avon products were made manually and its high-end machines. They can produce thousand of cosmetics products per day.
The production’s employees are very detailed on the products. They make sure that every products used by the customers are in quality.
After our tour, it’s eating time. Yahhooo! Lolz..They prepared healthy and delicious food. Again, I’m not a vegetarian but I love to eat vegetables and fruits.
