A TRUE PIECE OF PROVENCE

Our roots in Provence run deep. L’OCCITANE has reintroduced an iconic piece of heritage by planting 15,000 Almond Trees. The natural bounty of these Provencal almonds fills our deliciously scented Almond collection.

MORE THAN BEAUTY CARE

Our most loved Shea Butter is only possible thanks to the women in Burkina Faso, West Africa who produce this nourishing staple. Through business development training, we empower 10,000 women in environmentally-friendly shea processing, the best way to make an eternal favorite.

L'OCCITANE, A JOURNEY THAT STARTS IN PROVENCE

It all began in the markets of Provence. With nothing but an alembic, a small truck and a solid knowledge of plants, a 23-year-old named Olivier Baussan began distilling rosemary essential oil to sell locally. He expanded his production from oils to soaps to creams, taking inspiration from the land he grew up on to bring natural beauty to homes across the world.
