GIFTS THAT GIVE BACK

MORE THAN JUST A BRAND: A STORY OF COMMITMENTS

L'OCCITANE was born in 1976, when its founder, Olivier Baussan, began distilling essential oils and selling them in his much-loved land of Provence. Built on strong principles and true stories, the brand has grown (a lot!), but its philosophy has always remained the same. Nature matters. People matter. That is why L'OCCITANE has 6 clear commitments, focused on protecting our precious planet and treating people with respect.

Almond Collection

ALMOND COLLECTION

The almond tree is at the heart of L’OCCITANE and provides a true and inspirational story of how we can help nature when all seems lost - The almond tree was all but eradicated from the Provence landscape due to the popularity of olives in the region.  L’OCCITANE worked with its producers to replenish the almond trees in the region and today they thrive. We chose the Almond Collection as the gift that donates to the PUR Projet because of this reason.

Since 1976, L’OCCITANE has been protecting the richness of our lands and we are committed to defending biodiversity for the generations to come.

We celebrate nature and our mission is to give back to it. That is why we are proud to partner with global conservation charity, PUR Projet, to fund dedicated tree plantation projects in local regions across the world.
Shea Butter Collection

SHEA BUTTER COLLECTION

Shea butter is called "women’s gold" in Burkina Faso. The story of L'OCCITANE and the women shea butter producers of Burkina Faso began in the 1980s. Since then, we've built up a joint development partnership and a close, supportive relationship. There were about a dozen women at first. Now there are over 10,000! And since 2009, our shea butter supply chain has been 100% Fair Trade (Fair Trade certified according to the Fair for Life standard available at www.fairforlife.org).

Our aim is to support over 33,000 Women in their Socio-Economic Development by 2020 in Burkina Faso
