Empowering women is a key commitment for L’OCCITANE, we believe in gender equality and empowering women to achieve their goals. We purchase the shea butter directly from the producers, which is financially advantageous for the women, providing more economic security so they can achieve a higher level of independence. This also helps them to invest in
improving working conditions and making production chains more sustainable. Every year, we sell fund-raising products to promote women's leadership. These may seem like little steps, but they can make a big difference!
In 2018, we launched the RESIST program (Resilience, Ecology, Strengthening, Independence, Structure, Training) to support the women’s cooperatives. Aimed at also protecting natural resources, improving sustainability, enhancing governance and diversifying income, this $2 million project is a strong example of our commitment to empowering women!
Since 1980s, we've built up a joint development partnership and a close, supportive relationship with the women shea butter producers of Burkino Faso.
