I created L’OCCITANE so that I might remain in Provence. Along the way, I met men and women who wanted the same thing. Some were ar tisans, some producers. Some grew angelica, peonies or verbena. Together, we learned lessons in sustainable development.

"Tradition creates a link between man and his environment." Tradition is more than just a word. In Haute-Provence, it evokes many forgotten skills and crafts. There is no point in simply preserving them. Why live in a museum? They need to be kept alive. Restoring groves of almond trees to the Valensole plateau, preserving wild immortelle in Corsica, building a fair-trade industry of shea butter with the women of Burkina Faso, saving the fine lavender of Haute-Provence, currently under threat... All of these projects are dear to L’OCCITANE – which has always looked to cultivate plants and products that are part of the very DNA of its region. When CRIEPPAM* asked me to preside over a support fund for lavender and lavandin, I accepted immediately. L’OCCITANE has helped to finance the initial research work. The small blue lavender flower is one of the iconic faces of our Provençal landscape. It has travelled the world and captivated thousands of tourists. In Provence, it represents an economic sector that generates some 9,000 jobs directly.

BRIGHTENING IMMORTELLE BRIGHTENING EXPERTISE Many factors influence the beauty of a face, but perhaps the most important one is light: the light that shines on the skin, and the way it is reflected back. In this collection of targeted skincare products, L’OCCITANE has combined the anti-ageing properties of immortelle with Bellis perennis. An extract taken from this meadow flower provides advanced action that contributes to visibly diminishing complexion irregularities. Smoother, luminous and more evenly-toned, the skin is naturally brighter and radiant.

Brightening Essence - 30ml, $89 Brightening Moisture Cream - 50ml, $85 Immortelle Brightening Moisture Mask -125ml, $85

WHY USE A SERUM? Does your face cream need a little help? Serums contain a higher concentration of active molecules, making them an essential product in your daily skincare routine. Their sheer, fluid textures ensure that the active ingredients are rapidly absorbed and sink into the skin effortlessly.

HYDRATION & VITALITY FACE CARE

ANGELICA PURE & NATURAL HYDRATION In 2010, the L’OCCITANE laboratory patented* the combination of two extracts taken from the roots of organic angelica from Provence. This combination provides a lasting solution to an essential need of all skin types: hydration. Angelica water boosts the circulation of moisture in skin cells. Organic angelica essential oil helps to protect skin and improve elasticity. Following on from this first, innovative patent and the success of the Angelica range, L’OCCITANE intensified its research and filed a second patent in 2013. The new Hydra Vital Cream formula is enriched with an angelica seed extract, which provides long-lasting action to help regulate hydration. *Patent pending in France.

SUBLIME ESSENCE WITH ORGANIC EXTRACTS OF IRIS AND ANGELICA In 2013, L’OCCITANE combined organic angelica with iris extracts so that all women might enjoy sublime skin. All it takes are a few fresh, sheer drops of Sublime Essence to achieve a flawless nude look. Suitable for any skin type or tone, the face serum helps to correct irregularities and reduce redness. The skin’s texture is visibly refined and velvety. Pores immediately appear smaller. Moisturised, plumped and smoother,

HAIR CARE

5 ESSENTIAL OILS THERE’S SOMETHING ALMOST MAGICAL ABOUT THAT UNIQUE MOMENT WHEN STEAM PASSES THROUGH PLANT MATERIAL, COAXING IT TO YIELD AN ESSENTIAL OIL AND REVEAL ITS HIDDEN SECRETS. AFTER ALL, IT WAS AND OLD STEAM DISTILLER THAT GAVE LIFE TO L’OCCITANE. Based in Provence – a bountiful region for herbalists – L’OCCITANE was one of the first brands to take an active interest in essential oils. These precious essences are the expression of plants in a concentrated form. They lie at the heart of research by L’OCCITANE, which creates formulas that combine the cosmetic benefits of botanical active ingredients with their scents. The L’OCCITANE hair care range draws on this expertise. For each hair type, it combines five essential oils chosen for their specific properties and their scents. After 40 years of studies and observations, our Research & Development department has gained extensive knowledge in the science of the power of scents. Today, we talk about Aromachology by L’OCCITANE. Two new collections, recently developed, will soon be available in L’OCCITANE stores: an essential relaxing ritual, ideal for creating an environment conducive to relaxation and sleep, and an essential revitalising ritual to invigorate the body and give a true feeling of freshness.

FRAGRANCE

A FLOWER CAPTURED IN A PERFUME THE CHERRY ORCHARD Delicate buds have begun to swell on the sleeping branches. The ear th breathes a sigh. Nature is about to wake up... The cherry blossoms, as always, are eager to hasten the rituals of spring. Opening together, they form dazzling bouquets that gaze into the sky – which gazes back in wonder. Scents, suddenly released, escape in a flurry of petals. Now is the time to seize this fragrance, as it is released into the air. This moment of grace is captured, time and again, in a bottle etched with branches covered in blossom. Cherry Blossom Eau de Toilette - 75ml, $62

PIVOINE FLORA, ROSES ET REINES‌ To create a floral fragrance, you have to close your eyes and think back to a special day in spring. Just that day, no other. And one special flower, no other. Simplicity can be anything but simple, but when it shines with clarity, it is simply wonderful. That is when an ingredient yields its purest, most transparent beauty.

Verbena Eau de Toilette - 100ml, $72


VERBENA THERE IS SIMPLICITY AND SO MUCH ELEGANCE IN THE EXPRESSION OF THIS VERBENA EXTRACT FROM PROVENCE. ITS SCENT IS THE MOST NATURAL THING IN THE WORLD.

When the scent escapes from bunches of verbena still kissed with dew, there is only one thing to do: breathe it in, deeply and deliciously. At the edges of the verbena fields, rows of geranium add floral notes to the rippling citrus scents. Orange, lemon, petitgrain… A rumour, carried by the wind, tells of the first organic verbena extract from Provence. In Manosque, the bottles are ready to be filled with the "juice" from the harvest of Rémy Margiela, producer of fragrant plants. An engraved leaf adorns the labels and boxes of the collection, highlighted by silver hot foil stamping. It tells of a new journey through Provence…

TRUE LAVENDER Lavandula angustifolia grows in the mountains of HauteProvence, at an altitude of over 800 metres. In 1981, the producers of this lavender were awarded the PDO label for its essential oil. L’OCCITANE has been actively involved in promoting this label and supports it enthusiastically. In each of the past three years, it has reserved a significant share of production (approximately 4 tons of PDO Haute-Provence fine lavender essential oil). Our supplies are secured by multi-year contracts with three partners.

ABOUT THE L’OCCITANE FOUNDATION INTERVIEW WITH REINOLD GEIGER, CEO OF L’OCCITANE AND PRESIDENT OF THE L’OCCITANE FOUNDATION.
