The story begins in Provence in 1976, when Olivier Baussan creates L'OCCITANE.
Being inspired by the culture of the Mediterranean region, he develops his first natural and outstanding fragrance and skin care products.
L'OCCITANE product series is a true art de vivre. In accordance with the principles of phytotherapy we combine the nature and the clinical research. As an outcome, we created a patented natural complex and a research on effectiveness and tolerance of our formulas supervised closely by a medical expert panel.
L'OCCITANE is a socially responsible company with s strong ecological awareness.
From the beginning, the brand extends its activities beyond the Mediterranean region and supports the sustainable development program. Today, the L'OCCITANE Foundation continues to support various projects, which makes the brand meaningful and defines its objectives.
