WHAT WE STAND FOR

At L'OCCITANE, we show off the very best Provence has to offer, for a glowing beauty that's unique. Every day, we commit to preserving the breathtaking natural environment that never ceases to amaze.

L'OCCITANE, A JOURNEY THAT STARTS IN PROVENCE

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.

SUSTAINABLE SOURCING

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 sources as sustainably as possible.

OUR VALUES TOUCHING LIVES AROUND THE WORLD

Our global community is KING, and we try to give back through our L'OCCITANE Foundation, created in 2006. Our two main initiatives support visual impairment around the world and economic emancipation for women in Burkina Faso. On top of that, our employees participate in Foundation projects, from post-tsunami reconstruction in Japan to natural heritage in Provence.
