Since the 1980s, L'OCCITANE has been promoting sustainable partnerships with women producers of shea butter. To further extend this commitment, the L'OCCITANE Foundation empowers women in Burkina Faso. Since its creation in 2006, more than 26,000 women have received support in developing and strengthening their activities in Burkina Faso.
100% of profits* from the sale of this balm will go towards the L’OCCITANE Foundation to support women’s economic independence in the African region of Burkina Faso, the home of our much loved shea butter.
L’OCCITANE has helped more than 10.000 women to learn how to read and write since 2008. It also supports the education of 450 girls for four years at secondary school.
L’OCCITANE has allowed 8000 women to benefit from micro-credit since 2009.
L’OCCITANE launched in 2016 the “L’OCCITANE pour Elles” program to boost entrepreneurs women’s actions and scale up their business.
