These days everything tends to be natural-oriented, but to find the ones that smell great and work effectively are a different story. Based in South of France, Provence, L’Occitane uses natural ingredients since its founder Olivier Baussan created the brand.
The first ingredient that L’Occitane processed was the rosemary essential oil. From oil, Baussan expanded his production to soaps and creams and sold it locally—and eventually across the world. Now, L’Occitane is known for its natural skincare, which a quarter of its products are organic certified by Ecocert Fair Trade Certification and continually working in partnership with International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) since 2016 to further committed in sustainability and ethical sourcing. The beauty brand opens up their list of ingredients in each of its product information.

One of the signature ingredients that became the epitome of their sustainable and ethical sourcing is Shea Butter from Burkina Faso. Since 1989, L’Occitane has been working with women from Burkina Faso–who made their income through producing shea butter–an ideal beauty ingredient for the skin. United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has recognized L’Occitane as an exemplary company for its actions in Burkina Faso, within the framework of its 2013, “Growing Inclusive Markets” initiative.
