L’occitane was founded by Olivier Baussan, in the markets of Provence, France. Having with him nothing but a bag of ingredients and a full knowledge of plants and its use, he, then a 23 year old man, began distilling rosemary essential oil to sell locally.
Olivier Baussan increase his production from oils to soaps to creams. He stayed grounded throughout the years by following these simple virtues: authenticity, respect and “sensoriality”.
Accompanied by these values, L’occitane gives back to the community through L’OCCITANE Foundation. The foundation which was created in 2006 has two main initiatives. One, it supports visual impairment around the world and two, economic emancipation for women in Burkina Faso.
