THE STORY BEHIND OUR SHEA BUTTER HAND CREAM
While L'OCCITANE prides itself on using ingredients sourced from Provence – such as zingy Verbena, calming Lavender and creamy Almond – one of our most iconic products includes butter sourced from far-flung Burkina Faso. The award-winning Shea Butter Hand Cream is a best-seller: every four seconds, a tube of this renowned formula is sold around the world. So what's the story behind it, and why have we ventured outside of glorious Provence where we source almost all our ingredients? From female empowerment in Africa to the artistic inspiration behind the famous tubes, this is the tale of our Shea Butter Hand Cream.
