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.
