I am really looking forward to January 2015 as there will be new products by L’OCCITANE. I am super happy to be able to try these buggers now and I will let you know what I think about them as soon as I have used them. As I love cleansing oils I am looking very much forward to cleansing my face with the new Huile Demaquilante and pamper it afterwards with the lovely Crème Confort Légère.

“when Olivier Baussan first learned of the unique properties of shea butter he found himself at an airport in Africa. very impressed by the history of this sacred tree whose nuts are harvested mostly by women, he gave up his first order for shea butter a few weeks later.
at that time – about thirty years ago -the shea butter was sold only in local markets . since then, it has changed the lives of women in Burkina Faso. the solidarity partnership began with ten to twenty women- today over 15,000 women work in that sector.
for L’Occitane Shea Butter has become a care component with cult status. it has paved the way to economic independence for the women of Burkina Faso. the international success is shared with the co-operatives in a sustainable and equitable partnership that makes the regional production of shea butter with the highest biological quality possible.
in 2013 L’ Occitane was the key player in the development of the market for fair trade shea butter with his record order of 660 tons of shea butter. the United Nations Development Programme (programme des nations unies pour le développement / UNDP ) awarded L’Occitane due to his involvement in Burkina Faso as an exemplary company.”
