For over 30 years, L’Occitane has been creating and developing award winning skincare and bodycare products for men and women using only the finest natural ingredients and plant extracts. Investing heavily in research, L’Occitane has its own state-of-the-art laboratory in Manosque in the heart of Haute-Provence, France. Here, a team of one hundred researchers focus upon molecular biology, plant extraction and analytical chemistry to keep on introducing products which are at the height of new, innovative ways to deliver beauty products for the discerning client.
With many of their products organic certified and over two hundred botanical ingredients ethically sourced and specially chosen for their effectiveness, the ingredients are used at their ideal concentration levels to create all the elements needed to gain the best use of these exquisite natural resources. By using vegetable oils instead of petrochemicals, Provencal Almond and Burkina Faso Shea butter, these unique ingredients are proven to have a better affinity with the skin than many man-made derivatives often used in cosmetics and skincare today.
Cutting edge technology and research used today deliver wonderful products, presented in beautiful packaging and stylish gift boxes for men and women. L’Occitane’s roots however, show that this incredible brand has never lost sight of where it came from.
Olivier Bausson, at the age of 23 years, armed with a sound and solid knowledge of plants, a small truck and an alembic (a small beaker used for distilling chemicals) began distilling rosemary essential oil to sell at the local markets of Provence. He soon began to make soaps and creams, taking inspiration from the plants and flowers found on the land he grew up on. Today, L’Occitane brings the elements of Provence into the homes and lives of people all over the world using the power of nature to transform lives and create true beauty.
