“It only takes a few words to say what really matters,” writes Paul Eluard. “So, to put it simply, I'd like to say THANK YOU!”

AT L'OCCITANE we always encourage our people to follow their dreams and many of our employees volunteer to work on life-changing projects in communities far and wide. For the past two years our staff have been travelling to West Africa to teach the L'OCCITANE way of making soap to women in the Burkina Faso co-operative, where our pure shea butter is made. In New York many of our employees have given time to help visually-impaired children. Back in Europe we've been working with our producers and distillers in Corsica to continue with our cultivation of the exquisite Immortelle flower. Thank you to all our extraordinary producers, men and women who continue to teach me so much since the earliest days at L'OCCITANE.
