L'Occitane 40 Years Of True Stories

L'OCCITANE, 40 YEARS OF TRUE STORIES

Love stories are our true stories

For its 40th anniversary, L'Occitane celebrates the countless passions it shares with the men and women who cultivate true beauty, inspired by nature.

Harvests from close and faraway lands, discovery of new plan extracts, opening of some 3,000 stores, strong commitments fighting avoidable blindness, encouraging the emancipation of women in Burkina Faso, setting up a support fund for lavender in Provence. It has been a busy time for L'Occitane, where men and women met and made this dream a daily reality, nurtured by passion and conviction.
