- First beauty company for the blind too - L’Occitane was the first ever beauty company to put braille on their product labels. After meeting a blind customer who was so eager in getting a perfume (by smelling one by one), founder, Oliver Baussan made it a point to make shopping easier for those in lack in sight. In 1996, the company added braille to their packages.
- Thanks to a journalist shea butter was discovered - The journalist told Baussan about her trip to Africa and how the women there create shea butter balls out of nuts and made money selling them. Intrigued by this story, Baussan created a Fair trade exchange (where the women would be paid a pair price for their shea butter). This partnership is still going strong up to this very day.
- Shea Butter Hand Cream Sold every 3 second. WHAT??? - The formula for this product was perfected in 1993, where the scientist behind this product, Yves Millou added up to 20% more shea butter in order to give the women back in Africa more work (which equals to more money). Somewhere around the world, this great cream is being sold this very second!
- Sheep hate the sight of the Immortelle flower - Thanks to these sheep, the fields of the immortelle flower are free of any other wild plants, allowing the flower to grow without the need of any pesticides. These flowers are used in the anti-aging L’Occitane lines.
- The greatest donation in the history of the Beauty Industry - Without the donation of a soap factory and all its equipments to Olivier Baussan, the world would never know of the L’Occitane.
- The world greatest leader in fine lavender production - L’Occitane purchase 400 tons of lavender essential oil made of fine lavender every year. While most brands uses the more easily grown Lavendin (can grow in lower altitude), L’Occitane goes all out in search for the best, the Fine Lavender that is only available at 500 to 1,500 metrs above sea level.
- Say no to animal testing! - Instead of using animals, L’Occitane uses real human skin for their product testing. These skin are obtained from plastic surgeons in hospitals and can be used for up to 72 hours for the efficiency of the product.
