Organic Immortelle

Immortelle is a flower that never fades, even when picked. Its Latin name, Helichrysum, means "golden sun" – like its magnificent golden flowers. For Corsicans, it is a flower symbolic of the maquis (the fragrant scrubland of Corsica), with a captivating scent.   
The Balagne region is also known as "the garden of Corsica". In 2001, at the heart of this fragrant region, L'OCCITANE discovered this extraordinary wild plant.  The immortelle has medicinal properties known in Mediterranean traditions: anti-bruising, anti-inflammatory (more effective than arnica), and healing.

Traceability

Ever since the remarkable anti-aging properties of the immortelle plant were discovered, the picking of wild immortelle has become increasingly common. When the flowers are picked in accordance with sustainable guidelines, this actually "cleans up" the maquis and indirectly helps to prevent fires. However, the volumes harvested do not allow for a sustainable supply of immortelle. This is why, in 2004, L’OCCITANE launched a large-scale immortelle plantation, covering 50 hectares, in Corsica, using organic farming methods. In 2011, six growers/distillers cultivated and distilled organic immortelle in the Balagne region and eastern Corsica. Quality and traceability can be guaranteed, from the harvesting to the distillation of the flower. All our partners are committed to working with L’OCCITANE over the long term.

Stephan Francisci was the first to start this new adventure. He now cultivates 10 hectares for L’OCCITANE between Bastia and Porto-Vecchio. “Each flower cultivated saves a wild plant of the maquis.”  Pascale Chérubin, based in Ghisonaccia, is a biologist professor and owns 5 hectares. “This flower has done well for me. I always felt that the whole of Corsica was concentrated in the immortelle, with its spicy smell.”

Did You Know?

• The flowers are picked in the morning and distilled the same day, in the evening, to extract all their constituents. 

• 1 hectare provides enough land to produce 4 tons of flowers, which yield 8 kilos of essential oil.

Patented Effectiveness

L’OCCITANE has registered four patents, which attest to the innovative nature of our research into cell regeneration and the remarkable effectiveness of our skincare products made with immortelle from Corsica.

• Patent 1: Anti-aging with the Precious Cream: radiance-enhancing action (multiplies collagen production), smoothing (boosts skin microcirculation) and firming (protects the skin against free radicals).
• Patent 2: Anti-aging night care with the Very Precious Cream: patent 1 enhanced by repairing and anti-dark spot action.
• Patent 3: Complete anti-aging action and action on cellular youth with the Divine Cream: stimulates the production of SIRT-1 by fibroblasts.
• Patent 4: The synergy of new immortelle cell extracts and immortelle essential oil, with the new Precious Cream: strengthens the skin's support network and stimulates the natural exfoliation of deep cells.

Organic Myrtle

A symbol of life, myrtle can live for up to 300 years and is able to grow back after a fire.   On Corsica, the "Island of Beauty," wild myrtle is distilled to produce "Angel Water" (the distillate of the leaves and fruits). This aromatic water is prized by Corsican women, who use it to enhance their beauty. It reveals an incredible softness on the skin and leaves it delicately perfumed – as if caressed by the breath of an angel.

Traceability

We source our myrtle from Corsican distillers. Myrtle grows wild in Corsica and is harvested from August to October. The green stems of the myrtle bushes are distilled to produce both the essential oil and the floral water – known as Angel Water. Myrtle berries, meanwhile, are used to make the famous myrtle liqueur.

Effectiveness

Myrtle and immortelle come together in a divine combination. Thanks to the extraordinary powers of longevity of myrtle, L'OCCITANE has been able to create a new Immortelle range for all women who insist on the very best for their skin.  L’OCCITANE tested the effectiveness of its essential oil by in vitro tests on mature fibroblast cell cultures and showed that it was able to stimulate production of the longevity protein (SIRT-1), increasing production by 26%.

Almond

The almond flower, which typically blooms between February and March, is one of the earliest of the year. Fields are covered with pink and white blossoms, creating a beautiful sight.
In Provence, the almond tree was a strong symbol of the regional landscape until the early 20th century. But from the 1930's onwards, the cultivation of almond trees was abandoned, threatened by the mechanization of agriculture and the introduction of new and more profitable crops.
The almond tree became scarce in the region. L’OCCITANE wants to put this emblematic tree back where it deserves to be on the Provencal landscape, and so it purchases its almonds from producers in Provence.

Traceability

By using almonds grown in the south of France, L'OCCITANE supports the almond-growing business and the families it employs, such as the family farm of Mr. Jaubert, an almond grower on the Valensole plateau, in the Alps of Haute-Provence. 

"To this day, I have planted 10,000 almond trees – my contribution to helping the planet. The trees teach us wisdom and respect. If you look after them well, they will thank you and give good yields." – Mr. Jaubert

Did You Know?

Thanks to its deep roots and its leaves, from which very little moisture evaporates, the almond tree is highly resistant to drought. It is adapted to our region and gives excellent yields.

Patented Effectiveness

L’OCCITANE developed an exclusive complex with almond proteins to firm and smooth the body. It contains almond proteins (smoothing), silicium (firming) and essential oils of immortelle, palmarosa and peppermint (invigorating). The stimulation of fat breakdown is multiplied by 7 (in vitro test).

Verdon

In 2010, for its new men’s range, L’OCCITANE drew on a completely new source of inspiration: an extraordinary valley, with a rare and protected, rich natural environment that is home to over 2,200 plant species. Its name is the Verdon valley. A spectacular sight in Haute-Provence, the Verdon river has carved out an exceptional natural environment, offering a unique setting for outdoor activities.  Sea-buckthorn, genepi, mint and spring water are brought together in ultra-fresh formulas for men, to capture the invigorating sensations of outdoor water sports!

Traceability

“It was important for me to respect the plant’s purity and authenticity, so I chose to grow it organically!,” said Eric François, genepi grower in Vars, in the Hautes-Alpes region.  The three organic ingredients in this range come from Haute-Provence:

• The peppermint comes from organic cultivations set up in 2011 in the Verdon region, in Allemagne-en-Provence, by Christian Gaudemard.
• The sea-buckthorn is harvested in the Drac Valley by Mr. & Mrs. Reynier, who have been sea-buckthorn growers for 30 years.
• The genepi is grown by Eric François, a man with a passion for plants, in Vars, at an altitude of over 2,000 meters.

Did You Know?

The new Verdon range was created in accordance with L’OCCITANE’s CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) policy.

• Both the plastic and glass bottles are made from 100% recycled bottles (and there are no boxes).
• They have screw-on caps and pumps, which can be removed from the bottles before recycling.
• The labels are made from the same material as the bottles (PET), so as not to hinder the recycling process.

Patented Effectiveness

L’OCCITANE has developed a patented complex of active ingredients that work together in synergy. Organic ingredients from Haute-Provence provide the perfect response to the specific needs of men’s skin.

• Thirst-quenching: sea-buckthorn water leaves skin feeling incredibly comfortable.
• Energizing: sea-buckthorn oil gives the skin an invigorating boost and a healthy glow.
• Protective: genepi extract strengthens the skin’s resistance to harsh environmental conditions, to protect its youth.
• Purifying: peppermint essential oil, combined with zinc, leaves skin matt and perfectly clear.

Organic Cade

Cade, or wild juniper, grows wild in the scrubland of Provence. In the past, shepherds who held the secret to distilling cade wood used its precious oil to protect their faces and hands from the wind and sun. They cut branches of wild juniper and a large fire was lit, which caused the wood to exude a thick oil with protective and fortifying properties. It was also used to treat animal wounds. This distillation of cade wood traditionally accompanied sheep and goat breeding.

Traceability

The cade that we use comes from one of many picking areas in the Alps of Haute-Provence, near the village of Le Chaffaut. The trunks are cut up into small chips and then distilled to produce cade essential oil, which is certified organic by Ecocert.

Fascinated by plants and a connoisseur of cade wood, Jean-Louis Delfour, cade pick for L'OCCITANE, walks through the Alps of Haute-Provence, looking out for cade bushes hidden in the scrubland. With his trained eye, he finds it easily and picks it for L’OCCITANE.  "Cade reminds me of my childhood and the smell of this very particular wood, which my father used  in his workshop, in Thiers."

Did You Know?

The harvesting of cade wood contributes to the upkeep and protection of the scrubland in Provence. Cade is a shrub whose rapid growth can be detrimental to other plant species and can also increase the risk of forest fires.

Patented Effectiveness

L’OCCITANE has developed a patented complex that meets the specific needs of men’s skin. In addition to its purifying and invigorating properties, it also helps to strengthen, regenerate and protect the skin.

Organic Angelica

Angelica is a surprising plant. This age-old umbelliferous plant is known for its remarkable vitality: it grows incredibly fast and can reach a height of two meters in May, when it comes into flower. Its secret lies in its thick, deep roots, which act like water channels, drawing up all the water it needs to grow.
 
L‘OCCITANE was particularly interested in the moisturizing and revitalizing properties of Angelica. The Angelica range is ideal for women who want to restore their skin's radiance.

< DISCOVER OUR ANGELICA COLLECTION >

Traceability

L’OCCITANE sources its angelica from Frédéric Nivon’s farm in Lapeyrouse Mornay, in the Drôme region. "Angelica is a surprising plant that never ceases to amaze me, even after growing it for 12 years."

70 years ago, his grandfather set up a farm near the village of Lapeyrouse Mornay, in the Drôme region. Mr. Nivon carried on the family business, following in the footsteps of his grandfather and father. For 12 years, he has grown Angelica, and the remarkable vitality of this plant continues to amaze him. In 2005, the angelica that he grows for L’OCCITANE obtained organic certification. In accordance with organic requirements, no fertilizers or chemical pesticides are used.  Organic angelica essential oil and angelica water are extracted from these roots.

Did You Know?

Also called "Angel Grass" or "Holy Spirit Root", angelica roots were worn as a protective amulet to avert evil spells and bewitch sorcerers with their pleasant smell.

Patented Effectiveness

For the first time in cosmetics, the L’OCCITANE laboratory patented the combination of two extracts taken from the heart of angelica roots for their effectiveness on both skin hydration and vitality.

• By improving water circulation in the skin, angelica water boosts the skin's natural hydration.
• By protecting the skin against free radicals, angelica essential oil improves skin vitality, so that skin stays beautiful, longer.

Immediately and lastingly moisturized and revitalized, skin is plump, smoothed and radiant.

Rose

In ancient times, Mediterranean women would use oils in which rose petals had been steeped, to perfume their skin and keep it fresh and beautiful.
Both legendary and timeless, the rose has become the "queen of flowers" and an endless source of creativity for perfumers. Its many facets inspired a collection of three Eaux de Toilette, in every shade of femininity, from the most romantic to the most mysterious and captivating.

DISCOVER OUR ROSE COLLECTION >

Traceability

Our perfumers use Rose Centifolia absolute from Grasse, Rose Damascena concrete from Morocco, and Rose Damascena essential oil from Turkey and Bulgaria.

Did You Know?

he difference between the absolute, the concrete and the essential oil: 
• The essential oil is the volatile aromatic substance extracted from a botanical source. It is a true concentrate and, in the case of rose essential oil, is obtained through steam distillation of the freshly picked flowers. 
• The concrete is obtained through extraction using volatile solvents. It takes 300 to 400 kg of flowers to produce 1 kg of rose concrete, and 4 to 5 tons to produce 1 kg of essential oil! 
• The absolute is the essence prepared from the concrete by extraction with alcohol.

Eau de Toilette, Floral Rose

The delicate freshness of a bouquet of roses, the velvety softness of dew-kissed petals. In Provence, a legend tells of how the daughters of the Count of Forcalquier were as beautiful as the roses they cherished – the Grasse rose, the Bulgarian rose, the Moroccan rose and the Turkish rose. Each one of these daughters married a king, and so it was that Marguerite, Eléonore, Sancie and Béatrix became the four Queens of Forcalquier. Their favorite roses are blended together in the Eau des 4 Reines – a beautifully fresh, delicate and velvety scent.

Lavender

Also known as "blue gold," lavender is an aromatic tribute to Provence. It is the fragrant soul of the region, the fruit of respectful labor. In accordance with tradition, every summer, young Provencal villagers go hiking on the sunny hills to pick wild lavender at high altitudes. During the harvest period, they set out for several days in the open air, and at night, they get together to share the secrets of this summer flower with relaxing and purifying properties. 

In Provence, it is fine lavender, Lavandula angustifolia, which yields the purest essential oil, renowned for its delicate perfume. It is very different from the lavandin perfume, with its camphor smell. 

DISCOVER OUR LAVENDER COLLECTION >

Traceability

We source our essential oil of P.D.O. fine lavender from Haute-Provence directly from farmers' cooperatives in Sault and the surrounding area.
 The P.D.O. (Protected Designation of Origin) label guarantees a very high-quality product, since the relevant criteria are very strict:

• To obtain the P.D.O. label, the essential oil must be produced by steam distillation (not with solvents) using only the flowering tops of Lavandula angustifolia P. Miller, or Fine Lavender.
 • Production is geographically limited to a few French départements.
• Plantations must be in this area, at a minimum altitude of 800 m above sea level.
• The essential oil must be virgin: no substances or products can be added to it.

In Lagarde d’Apt, at an altitude of over 1,000 meters, Martine Rayne, who was born into the world of lavender, continues the work of her ancestors.
"On our land in Lagarde d’Apt, there has always been wild lavender. Every year, we harvest it to keep the seeds and maintain the diversity of this fine lavender. Each young plant is different – and this is one of the secrets of its exceptional characteristics." 

Did You Know?

• The A.O.C. label (now the P.D.O. label) was created in 1981 to protect French products in the face of competition from foreign sources. It guarantees a very high-quality product. 
• It is important not to confuse fine lavender with lavandin, which is a hybrid made by crossing  lavandula officinalis with spike lavender, and which yields an essence used mainly for products that are mass produced on an industrial scale (e.g. cleaning products, washing powder, mass-produced beauty products).

Eau de Cologne, Fresh Aromatic

Lavender Eau de Cologne
Brightened by the radiant freshness of citrus fruits, the Lavender Eau de Cologne is a fresh and light fragrance with a lingering, captivating, woody musky trail.  This sunny cologne is a celebration of summer that captures all the luminosity of Haute-Provence.

Verbena

Verbena is a shrub that is typical of the Mediterranean basin. People from the south of France are very familiar with this plant.
In June, as baskets are filled with the freshly harvested green leaves, the markets in the Mediterranean area are heavy with the scent of Verbena. Its fresh, lemony fragrance is carried for miles around. 
When summer arrives and the weather gets hotter, verbena leaves are used for herbal iced teas or tangy sorbets. 
This refreshing sensation is at the heart of the Verbena collection – a vibrant, radiant range to revive both the body and mind!

Rémy Margiella, an organic farmer with much experience in medicinal plants, planted a hectare of organic verbena in Tulette, in the Drôme Provençale region. The floral waters and macerated oils are made from the dried leaves and are used in the products in the L'OCCITANE Verbena range. "We harvest verbena twice every year: first in early summer, and then again in early autumn."

Did You Know?

Verbena, also known as "the enchanter's plant", was a favorite plant with magicians – who used it to make love potions. Verbena is considered a universal remedy, hence why it is also called the "cure-all" herb.

Eau de toilette, Hesperide Vert

A refreshing lemony scent, loved by everyone!   Verbena Eau de Toilette draws its inspiration from Mediterranean markets, where the refreshing scent of freshly picked green verbena leaves fills the air. This delicate and subtle fragrance revives both the body and mind.

Cherry Blossom

"Flying in the first breeze of spring, Cherry Blossom is so rare and precious." - Olivier Baussan
 
The cherry tree is part of the Provencal landscape. It is widespread in the Apt region, in Luberon, and changes colors with the seasons – making it a source of inspiration for artists. Pure white in spring, bright red in summer, soft green in autumn.  L'OCCITANE celebrates the poetic beauty of the beautiful white, fleeting cherry blossoms, which last for just a few days in early spring.

Eau de Toilette, Fruity Floral

This feminine, harmonious Eau de Toilette evokes all the softness and freshness of a breeze of flowers in the springtime. 

Peony

The peony is a very popular flower that grows naturally around the Mediterranean Basin. Long before it became famous as an ornamental plant, as far back as ancient times, the peony was a renowned medicinal plant. A symbol of beauty, it offers a dazzling show of colors and scents every spring.  This flower with a thousand petals inspired the new fragrance and make-up collection by L’OCCITANE.

Traceability

To understand the fragrant secrets of this flower, L’OCCITANE established an exclusive partnership with a nurseryman, Jean-Luc Rivière – a man with a passion for peonies, whose family has devoted itself to breeding and cultivating them for 160 years, in the Drôme region of France. Following Mr. Rivière’s advice, L’OCCITANE developed a natural extract of peony root, which perfumes all the products in the collection. 

“We’ve fallen in love with the peony in all its incarnations,” says Jean-Luc Rivière, nurseryman in the Drôme region.

Did You Know?

• The peony reveals its beauty to those who deserve it… In a nursery, it can take 5 to 7 years to go from planting the peony to seeing it first bloom!
• Up to 60 flowers can blossom from a single peony plant. The largest flowers can have a diameter of 30 cm!
