The L'Occitane Foundation

L'Occitane Foundation

Our Commitment

For over 30 years, L’OCCITANE has supported numerous ethical and charitable organisations. The L’OCCITANE Foundation, the charitable arm of L’OCCITANE, is committed to supporting women and financing international projects and NGO’s worldwide. One of their major projects has been enabling the women of Burkina Faso, where L’OCCITANE sources their famous Shea Butter, to develop other revenue generating activities to drive them towards economic emancipation.

The Foundation works on three pillars: teaching skills and basic knowledge through literacy programs, granting financial resources through microcredit programs and entrepreneurial support for those wanting to create and develop their own small businesses.
