How To Get Great Skin

How can we define great skin? At L’OCCITANE, we believe it's reaching your skin’s full potential. It’s about how to get the best from it, regardless of all the lifestyle, hormonal, and personal challenges your skin can face. No matter what your lifestyle entails, use this guide to make sure you're following the most basic principles of skin protection.

A Simple Grooming Routine

"Hi everyone, I’m Victor. I joined the global L’OCCITANE team 4 years ago and am responsible for relaunching the Men’s range in 2020 and creating the L’OCCITANE Homme brand.

I wasn’t always into skincare though! I used to grab whatever was available in the bathroom, making no distinction between shampoo, shower gel, moisturiser or body lotion. I was uneducated on how the products could positively affect my skin and felt the ‘Marketing-Spiel’ was talking to anyone but me, in a language I didn’t understand. I have written my simple grooming routine down to make it easier for men to understand what products to use..."

We See You

L'OCCITANE's history and devotion to becoming cultivators of change reads like a poem; one where infinite passion, ground breaking ideas and desire to make lasting change come together. Since 1976, L'OCCITANE has been committed to preserving the environments we touch, cultivating with care and engaging in philanthropy.

This year, L'OCCITANE has created WE SEE YOU, a film to celebrate those little changes and a recognition of the effort you are making. The film focuses on three of our six key commitments; Respecting Biodiversity, Reducing Waste and Empowering Women.

L'OCCITANE Feel Good Fellowship Films

L’OCCITANE launches two short films with a focus on their commitments at the heart of their conscientious brand.

The Feel Good Fellowship adopts a documentary approach to share the true stories at the heart of the brands we buy from. Who they really are and what their core values are. Taking you behind the scenes, they deliver a series of 'truth' films that lift that marketing fourth wall to showcase the full company credentials, principles and cultures.

β€œ#1 Premium Hand Care Brand in the World”

We are happy to announce that after a global study Euromonitor has designated L’OCCITANE as the first premium hand care brand!

L’OCCITANE (pronounced LOX-EE-TAN) is a real romance novel. A simple story of being in love with nature and Provence, where the brand was born and some of the very best ingredients in the world can be found. It was always crucial for the brand to protect and give back to the natural world, so that generations to come could enjoy it as we have.

Following the success of our How to say L’OCCITANE? film in 2019, we have produced a new film showcasing our commitments that we as a brand live by. We chose to focus on four; Respecting Biodiversity, Supporting Producers, Reducing Waste and Empowering Women.
