THE SHEA BUTTER ADVENTURE

Discover our special bond with women from Burkina Faso

The story of shea is a story of patience. And harvesting the fruit is the story of women, women from Burkina Faso. L'OCCITANE has been working with women producing Shea Butter since the 1980s with an objective of co-development. In 2006, the L'OCCITANE Foundation has chosen to build on this partnership with the women of this country by focusing its activities on supporting women's entrepreneurship, which is today the most appropriate way for their empowerment and economic emancipation.

In 1982, the Burkinable women made a convincing impression on Olivier Baussan, through their knowledge related to Shea Butter and the multiple uses of an exceptional ingredient. 

Just as the olive tree is an important part of the Mediterranean landscape and lifestyle, so is the Shea Tree to West Africa, its name in the local language means “life.” In Burkina Faso, women use Shea Butter from cooking to protecting and nourishing their skin and that of their children.
