L'OCCITANE Supports UNICEF
Committed Together

3 Years, 3 Countries, 1.7 Million Children

Our goal is simple: preserve the vision of 1.7 million* children by 2019. In developing countries up to 500 000 go blind each year because of Vitamin A deficiency - a result of poor diet and disease. Vitamin A is crucial for children’s growth, development and resistance to disease. Studies have shown that improving the Vitamin A status of deficient children through supplementation can reduce mortality by almost 23%. L’OCCITANE is contributing to UNICEF’s programmes by providing Vitamin A supplements to children on an international level, with a specific focus on three countries to measure direct impact.

1 Soap = 1 Year Of
Vitamin A For 3 Children

Help us create a world where

children can see all the beautiful colours nature has to offer by supporting our Solidarity Soap*.

Wrapped in natural craft paper highlighted by vivid tones of blue and green, this little shea butter soap is a step to ending childhood blindness throughout the world. Designed by a 9-year old artist named Celestin, its fun and sweet eye pattern conceals a lush bar of shea butter soap, with  a creamy texture that cleanses the skin.

L'OCCITANE Cares About Sight

Braille Packaging

Since 1997, we have shown our commitment to sight by labelling its products in braille – an initiative of Olivier BAUSSAN, founder of the brand. In 2000, the first fund-raising product was sold in L’OCCITANE stores.

Union For Vision

We’ve had eye care in our sights for the past two decades, since our founder Olivier Baussan first decided to put Braille on our labels in 1997. Since 2000, L’OCCITANE has enabled access to eye care to those in need. Our Fondation works with NGOs worldwide to eliminate pathologies and reduce the cases of visual impairment.
