Japanese term or phrase: サロン
This is listed as being a method that companies use to sell products to consumers.
Some of the products listed as being sold using this method are definitely not products that would be sold at any beauty salon. As such, I do not believe this refers to any actual beauty salons.
My first impression is that it might be some kind of a social gathering where someone is talking about products?

I need both an English translation and an explanation of what サロン is.
Thanks in advance.
