IN LOVE WITH PROVENCE
Provence is our inspiration
Provence is a rich land, with its breathtaking, diverse landscapes, its untouched natural beauty, and its ancestral skills and traditions. Through various local initiatives, L’OCCITANE supports and highlights the men and women who breathe life into this region, with the desire to preserve and pass on their expertise and knowledge of nature. In return, this land offers us ingredients of the finest quality, which we use in our products made in Provence, to delight and stir your senses.
Ingredients true stories
L’OCCITANE works directly with over 130 French farmers and 10,000 pickers – from the immortelle fields of Corsica to the lavender fields of Provence – to ensure that the ingredients we use are of the highest quality and sourced as sustainably as possible. A truly remarkable product is made with love and expertise, so we have forged long-term partnerships with local growers, built on trust, to make the most of Nature’s bounty while developing practices that are gentle on the planet.
L’OCCITANE develops products that are increasingly respectful of both mankind and the world we live in. We produce eco-refills and much of our packaging is made with recycled materials or uses resources that are renewable or from sustainably managed forests. We strive to minimize our carbon footprint by limiting the use of air transport, promoting the use of renewable energies and, wherever possible, transporting our goods by sea, rail or road. We promote biodiversity through sustainable growing practices and increasingly natural formulas: 92% of the products launched in 2016 contain at least 90% natural ingredients, while 57% contain over 95%.
A VISION FOR CHILDREN
Children are the building blocks of the future
80% of what a child learns comes from visual learning, so access to eye care is fundamental. L’OCCITANE is determined to make universal access to eye care a reality. Since 2000, it has supported actions worldwide to fight childhood blindness, and it is involved in projects to provide eye screening, glasses and medical treatments. It continues to strengthen its commitment thanks to an international partnership with UNICEF, signed in 2017.
