A Story of Vision

Caring For Sight is one of L'OCCITANE's six commitments and plays a central role in everything we do.

Since 1997 we began adding Braille to our product’s packaging whenever possible. Our goal was to include and to give visually impaired people access to information and also to raise awareness of this disability among our customers. With the creation of L’OCCITANE Foundation in 2006, we started to support projects and initiatives to combat preventable blindness working with NGOs worldwide to fund screening, treatment, eye surgery projects, as well as acquisition of equipment and medical staff training.

For World Sight Day this year, we are thrilled to announce that we are donating €10,000 to L’OCCITANE Foundation to continue our fight against preventable blindness.

L'OCCITANE Cares About Sight

Getting Employees Involved

RACE FOR VISION

RACE FOR VISION

Our subsidiaries around the world get involved in local, sight-related projects and initiatives. Every year, L'OCCITANE employees can take part in the "Race for Vision" – a connected race that raises funds to fight visual impairment. In France, we also have a "payroll giving" scheme, enabling employees to make regular donations to sight-saving charities.

SUBSIDIARIES WITH A VISION & AMBITION

Our Malaysian subsidiary got customers involved in the Race for Vision and invited them to post photos of their feet – with the words "Fight Avoidable Blindness" – on Instagram, along with the official Race for Vision hashtags. For each photo posted, L'OCCITANE Malaysia made a donation. An idea worth developing!
