At L'OCCITANE, we strive to use high-quality, traceable and natural ingredients. We use over 200 botanical ingredients, a quarter of them organically certified, which are carefully selected for their effectiveness and their ability to give your skin the elements it needs to be beautiful. These ingredients are used at an ideal concentration in our formulas. We therefore systematically give priority to natural ingredients whenever possible. For example, we use vegetable oils in place of oils derived from petrochemicals, as they have a better affinity with the skin. Discover the key natural ingredients that make our products so unique.
