"We draw inspiration from the natural properties of plants to drive innovation. We are dedicated to developing long-term partnerships with our producers and prioritise short, local integrated channels when sourcing our key ingredients."
We work directly with over 130 French farmers and 10.000 pickers – from the Immortelle fields of Corsica to the Lavender fields of Provence, ensuring that the ingredients we use are of the highest quality and sourced as sustainably as possible.
Uncovered by our laboratory fifteen years ago, the large scale organic Immortelle plantation programme was launched in Corsica; the initiative unites respect for the environment with equality. Today, this project brings together ten Corsican growers and distillers, who use organic farming methods and have contracts that cover five to seven harvests.
Olivier Baussan, founder of the L’OCCITANE brand discovered shea butter in Burkina Faso in 1980 – the start of a sustainable joint-development partnership with the women who produce this butter. Since 2015, the Group has been working on projects aimed at protecting the Shea tree and reducing the environmental impact.
" At L'OCCITANE, we strive to use high-quality, traceable and natural ingredients. We use over 200 botanical ingredients, a quarter of them organic certified, which are carefully selected for their effectiveness and their ability to give your skin the elements it needs to be beautiful. We therefore systematically give priority to natural ingredients whenever possible. Discover the key natural ingredients that make our products so unique.
