Are Avon products vegetarian friendly?
Hi, I've got a few customers interested in buying off me but they are vegetarian and are concerned if the products may have traces of animal in them like some other cosmetics do. Does anybody know if Avon products are vegetarian friendly? And if so are they all or just some of them? Thanks in advance x

Anyone thinking of becoming a rep should first know the tax implications.
Thinking of becoming a rep? Signing up to become an Independent Avon Representative and/or an Independent Avon Sales Leader is signing up to a self-employed business. Having signed, in order to comply with the law, you must register yourself with HMRC (formerly the Inland Revenue). You can do this online at https://www.gov.uk/working-for-yourself/what-you-need-to-do or on the phone by ringing your local HMRC office. You must also notify the offices of any income based benefits that you are receiving. Failure to register with HMRC and/or benefits offices can result in you being fined. Contrary to what some people believe, Avon is not 'a cash in hand job' or 'a bit of pocket money'. The earnings from it are just that, earnings , which have to be declared for tax and benefits purposes. xx

Becoming a rep
I spend £80 - £90 minimum on every Avon book. Would it be worth me becoming a rep myself? Can I sell to friends and family only as I really don’t fancy trudging the streets! Thanks
