L’Occitane began in the markets of Provence. With nothing but an alembic, a small truck and a solid knowledge of plants, the 23-year-old Olivier Baussan began distilling rosemary essential oil to sell locally. He expanded his production from oils to soaps to creams, taking inspiration from the land he grew up on to bring natural beauty to homes across the world. Today L’Occitane works with over 130 French farmers and 10.000 pickers, from the immortelle fields of Corsica to the lavender fields of Provence, to secure as much high quality and sustainable ingredients as possible.
