L'OCCITANE shows off the very best Provence has to offer, for a glowing beauty that's unique. Every day, they commit to preserving the breath-taking natural environment that never ceases to amaze. It all began in the markets of Provence. With nothing but an alembic, a small truck and a solid knowledge of plants, a 23-year-old named Olivier Baussan began distilling rosemary essential oil to sell locally. He expanded his production from oils to soaps to creams, taking inspiration from the land he grew up on to bring natural beauty to homes across the world. L'OCCITANE sees nature as its model and draws inspiration from the natural properties of plants to drive innovation. They are dedicated to developing long-term partnerships with producers and prioritise short and local integrated channels when sourcing their high-quality and sustainably sourced ingredients. L'OCCITANE strives to use high-quality, traceable, natural ingredients, carefully selected for their effectiveness and their ability to give your skin the elements it needs to be beautiful.
