The benefits of French Lavender
Lavender is part of our DNA
Lavender has been part of the L’Occitane DNA for decades. We've been harnessing its benefits, using only fine lavender, Lavandula angustifolia, as it yields the very best essential oil. This lavender oil is protected by the PDO label – a guarantee of quality and traceability.
We use lavender for its relaxing properties and exquisite scent in our body care products, which include our much-loved Foaming Bath and Eau de Cologne. Being part of a complex of different essential oils, lavender is also used as a key ingredient in some of our Aromachologie products.
Many Lavender flowers for few essential oil
Distillation is carried out just after harvesting. 1 ton of lavender flowers yields 8 kg of essential oil.
A L'Occitane heritage
The first lavender harvest reserved for L'OCCITANE took place in 1977.
Lavender growing conditions
Fine lavender grows at an altitude of anything from 600 to 1,700 metres!
