MEET OUR BOTANICAL ALTERNATIVE TO RETINOL
Over the past 30 years, Retinol has become the industry's gold standard ingredient thanks to its efficacy and anti-ageing benefits. However, Retinol has one major drawback - it can be highly sensitising and irritating on the skin, leaving many people unable to use it.
The industry has been searching for a natural and gentler alternative to Retinol, but without compromising on efficacy. The L'OCCITANE labs have discovered such an alternative and have tested it side by side with Retinol. Just like Retinol, at the dermis level, the Immortelle Super Extract stimulates collagen synthesis, whilst at the dermis level it boosts cell proliferation, resulting in skin renewal and a thicker epidermis.

The Art of Extraction
100% Organic & Harvested in Corsica, in the South of France.
Immortelle Essential Oil and Immortelle Floral Water are extracted through a 2-hour steam distillation, using ancestral techniques, on the day of harvest.
The distilled plants are then dried and still have a lot to give.
With our eco-extraction processes free from synthetic solvents, we can harness new extracts from the already used plant.
The right pressure and temperature conditions have to be met for either a CO2 supercritical extraction or sub-critical water extraction...
