Our Formulas

L'OCCITANE offers high quality beauty products and fragrances, developed following the principles of phytotherapy and aromatherapy. Our textures and fragrances are inspired by the Mediterranean lifestyle: using a L'OCCITANE product is always a moment of well-being and sensory delight.

We follow a strict formulation charter to guarantee the best quality, the best efficiency, and an optimal pleasure of use, while respecting people and environment. We strive to use high-quality, traceable, natural ingredients. We use over 200 botanical ingredients, a quarter of them organic certified, which are carefully selected for their effectiveness and their ability to give your skin the elements it needs to be beautiful. These ingredients are used at an ideal concentration in our formulas. We therefore systematically give priority to natural ingredients whenever possible. For example, we use vegetable oils in place of oils derived from petrochemicals, as they have a better affinity with the skin. However to ensure that our products offer optimum safety and effectiveness, we may use synthetic molecules when no reliable and effective natural alternative exists, while always erring on the side of caution.

Respect for the Earth: L’OCCITANE is committed to limiting the impact of its actions and products, on the environment and on the local populations. The quest for a harmony with nature is one of the key values at the heart of L'OCCITANE. The preservation of cultures that are in danger is also one of our priorities.

Respect for the skin: All our products are dermatologically tested by independent laboratories, in order to assure their safety

Respect for animals: Since its creation, L'OCCITANE has defended the animal cause by refusing to use in its formulas any animal origin products except products that derive from the beehive. 

Active Ingredients

We source from local and sustainable agricultural sectors, from Provence and the Mediterranean. We also use ingredients with Protected Designation of Origin (P.D.O.), such as lavender P.D.O. Haute-Provence.

Respectful Cosmetics

Should questions arise regarding any of our ingredients in relation to health (parabens, phthalates, aluminum salts…) or the environment (silicones, SLES…), we revise our formulas, applying precautionary measures, and so anticipate any legal changes.

Research & Innovation

L'OCCITANE invests heavily in research, and has its own research lab in natural cosmetics, located in the heart of the Haute-Provence, in Manosque.

A Team of Experts

A team of 80 researchers is constantly working to develop the best formulas, which are regularly subject of patents, proving that we use our natural active ingredients in a unique and effective way. Our researchers are also guarantors of the good manufacturing of our products, which are mostly produced in our factory in Manosque. We therefore control all stages of creation and manufacturing of our products.

Natural Ingredient Research

The observation of nature guides our research. The behavior of plants often tells a lot about their properties, such as immortelle, the flower that never fades, which has exceptional anti-aging properties. After observing the behavior of plants, we develop extraction processes that allow us to obtain the extracts concentrated in active ingredients: the real quintessence of the plant. They are subjected to numerous tests to prove their efficiency and safety, in partnership with universities and hospitals. For example, we have set up a laboratory at the forefront of scientific innovation, using the principles of cosmetogenomics: this science consists of studying the stimulation of genes in response to the application of a cosmetic product. The goal is to intervene at the origin of biological phenomena, to ensure optimal efficiency combined with safety.

Key Figures

• A team of 80 experts and researchers • 200 new formulas each year • 14 patents registered since 2001 • More than 500 safety & efficacy tests • Over 300 plant-based ingredients • Traceability and direct sourcing from our 50 partner producers/pickers

Packaging

The essential functions of packaging are not necessarily compatible with environmental concerns. L’OCCITANE has decided to follow precise guidelines, with the goal of constantly and gradually reducing the environmental impact of its packaging. We have therefore chosen an eco-design approach, selecting materials that are the least polluting or already recycled, using resources that are renewable or that come from sustainably managed forests, and designing easily recyclable packaging. All of this is detailed in a company eco-design charter. We have stopped using outer packaging whenever possible, have reduced the weight of primary packaging, and evaluate the environmental impact of each new product from its initial conception through to its development: this is a determining factor for a product's launch. For this reason, we offer more and more eco-refills for our toiletries, as this type of packaging uses 80% less plastic than a bottle, and use green plastic whenever possible.

How to Recycle Our Products?

Some of our products are 100% recyclable, but for most of them, you will have to separate the recyclable part from the waste part of packaging. Here are some examples of recyclable materials: • All of our paper boxes • All of our plastic & glass bottle • As well as our aluminum bottles, boxes and tubes On the contrary, the pumps as well as metallic caps are not recyclable. In case you are unsure, feel free to contact us or ask to your sales associate!
