What’s the history of  L’OCCITANE?
In 1976, a young Frenchman studying the arts, Olivier Baussan, decided to share his passions with the rest of the world. He was (and still is) passionate about the secrets that plants offered for our skin and our wellbeing. He wanted to capture the healing powers that the iconic plants from the landscape of his hometown, Provence, offered. His journey began when he bought himself a handsome copper still that was sitting outside a shed on the side of the road, from a gentleman whose need for it had withered. Now that he had this handsome copper still, it only made sense to use it to draw beautiful healing powers from the plants that surrounded him. The first ever essential oils that Olivier Baussan distilled were rosemary and lavender. From there, L’Occitane en Provence was born!
The beginnings were humble, with Olivier Baussan wheeling out his beloved cart holding his home-made essential oils and soap formulas every weekend. He would set up a stall at the open-air markets in the little village of Forcalquier in Provence. The brand stays true to these humble beginnings by having 100% traceability of where their ingredients come from by maintaining a close relationship with all of their harvesters, growers and distillers.
Through word of mouth, L’OCCITANE’s popularity grew quickly, with the first ever boutique opening only a few years later. Now, you’ll find L’Occitane en Provence in more than 500 countries with more than 1,555 stores.
What’s your No1 product that keeps customers coming back for more?
Our Shea Butter Hand Cream is the most iconic of L’OCCITANE’s products, selling 1 every 4 seconds around the world.
Is there a secret ingredient that stands out in all your products?
It’s the not-so-secret ingredient, shea butter, which you’ll find within so many of our products. Shea butter derives from the nuts on a shea tree, also known as the tree of a thousand benefits, and is an incredibly rich, universal skin treatment that works deep down to nourish and protect. L’OCCITANE has succeeded in capturing its excellent moisturising properties in many of its products, to provide special and tender care for dry and sensitive skin.
Created thirty years ago, the best-selling L’OCCITANE shea butter range can now be found all over the world. This success wouldn’t have been possible without the know-how and commitment of Burkinabé women. In 1981, when the mutually beneficial partnership began between L’OCCITANE and the women of Burkina Faso, just a dozen or so women were making high-quality, shea butter. Now there are around 17,000 women working in these cooperatives. This sustainable and fair trade partnership supports the women of Burkina Faso by developing their education and literacy. Over 9,700 of these women have been helped by the L’OCCITANE FOUNDATION and as a result, the company has been cited by the UN (within the framework of the UNDP) as an Exemplary for its actions in Burkina Faso.
What key messages are L’OCCITANE trying to send out to the world?
L’OCCITANE has six key commitments that run through all that they do
·         INVESTMENT IN WOMEN
·         HEALTHCARE FOR EYES
·         RECYCLING FOR OUR FUTURE
·         BIODIVERSITY FOR OUR PLANET
·         RECOGNITION FOR OUR ARTISANS
·         SUPPORT FOR OUR PRODUCERS
