Lavender has been part of the L’Occitane DNA for decades. We've been harnessing its benefits, using only fine lavender, Lavandula angustifolia, as it yields the very best essential oil. This lavender oil is protected by the PDO label – a guarantee of quality and traceability. It is one of the first flowers used by our founder, Oliver Baussan. Its unique fragrance has become an aromatic tribute to Provence, earning the nickname 'Blue Gold' from locals. To honour our roots, we use lavender sourced from farmers' cooperatives in Provence.

Discover the White Lavender

White Lavender

... a flower with a thousand benefits...

Since 2016, L'Occitane has initiated a unique varietal selection program with local players.

This variety is white lavender - a blue lavender dotted with white, with the same scent as the traditional Lavandula Angustifolia - but also more resilient. This mixture of white lavender and blue lavender encourages biodiversity: by living together, they help each other and become more resistant to climate change and disease-carrying insects.

Known for its soothing and relaxing benefits, this flower has been used for therapeutic purposes for centuries. This is the first time this year that we are introducing the white lavender.

...unique and preserved

And to promote a more beneficial ecosystem, L'Occitane created its Biodiversity and Sustainable Ingredients Department in 2008 to promote agricultural practices that respect the future. And in 2020, it supported the creation of the Agroecology and Fair Trade Association to experiment with new agroecological practices.

The purpose of all this? Preserve the unique and magical environment of Provence.
