Since 1976, L’Occitane has been imagining, producing and selling beauty, skincare and wellbeing products with an intention to share nature’s wonders with the world. We are cultivators of change. Committing to protecting this nature and the people around was an obvious choice. We made sure we worked fairly with our producers, and source the most natural ingredients we can without harming the biodiversity. Our natural beauty products respect the commitments we stand by and give back to the heart of our products.

Respecting Biodiversity

Since 1976, L’OCCITANE has been protecting the richness of our lands and we are committed to defending biodiversity for the generations to come. We celebrate nature and our mission is to give back to it. Wherever we can help maintain the diversity of ecosystems, working with key players, and implementing concrete actions, that’s where we’ll be. Discover the products sustainably sourced from mother nature that come as no cost to the environment.

Reducing Waste

L’OCCITANE truly commits to reducing waste and recycling as a brand locally and locally. We want to create a circular economy with the help of involved and innovative parters, multi-brand initiatives, but also above all, our consumers. We have set a global goal to use 100% recycled plastic in 100% of our products by 2025. Discover our sustainable and plastic-free beauty alternatives including eco-refills, solid shampoos and soap bars.

Supporting Producers

Our relationship with our producers is precious. They’re the ones who grow the locally sourced, traceable and natural ingredients that lie at the heart of our products. Our aim is to finalise fair-trade certifications with all our producers of iconic ingredients by 2025, just like we did for our Fair Trade* Shea Butter supply-chain in Burkina Faso. Discover our ethically sourced beauty products and the stories of our producers behind our most-loved ranges. 

Empowering Women

At L’OCCITANE, we believe in gender equality and empowering women to achieve their goals. Our organic Shea Butter is produced by women in Burkina Faso. Through the L’Occitane Foundation, they have supported over 42,00 women in Burkina Faso, who work to produce our shea butter ingredient. Discover the products enriched with this ingredients known as ‘women’s gold’ in hand care, body care and face care ranges.

Caring for Sight

Have you noticed the Braille on our packaging? 80% of blindness is preventable, through partnerships with NGOs and UNICEF, and through the work of our Foundation, we act on several fronts to support the blin and visually impaired. We’ve been helping to prevent blindness in children through Vitamin A supplements, and enabling more people around the world to have access to eye tests and eye care. 

Celebrating Craftsmanship

Artisanal skills are disappearing, and yet they're so important! When you think of L'OCCITANE, you think of authenticity, expertise, traditions and, of course, Provence. L'OCCITANE has always been passionate about craftsmanship and creativity, so it makes perfect sense for the brand to work with local artisans. We'll be showcasing their talents and know-how in our stores and working with them to develop exclusive creations and products so that you, too, can appreciate all the beauty of their traditional, artisanal skills. 
Our aim: to support artisans, and share their skills and stories with others.

Vegan Products

Discover our vegan beauty products, 100% free from animal products or by-products.

Clean Charter Products

We have been and will always be deeply committed to consumer safety and limited our impact on the environment at every stage of the product life cycle. Our Clean Charter criteria highlights an increased commitment to creating formulas with even more natural-origin ingredients (for leave-on products) and readily biodegradable ingredients that minimise our environmental impact (for rinse-off products), without any compromise on the efficacy of the product.
