L'Occitane Recycling Program
Respect for the environment is at the heart of L'Occitane en Provence. That’s why we’ve partnered with TerraCycle® to provide a collection and recycling program for beauty and skin care products and packaging in our L’OCCITANE boutiques.
Every year, millions of beauty and skincare packaging end up in dumpsters and landfills. We are working with TerraCycle® to put an end to this enormous loss of resources.
Bring your used beauty and skin care products and packaging to one of our participating boutiques to be recycled. The L’Occitane Recycling Program allows us to recycle beauty and skin care products to prevent them from ending up in landfills and be used in the creation of new products.
A Mother-Daughter Bond Over Shea
“I love the scent of shea, it reminds me of home and it makes me smile when I remember my mother teaching me how to make it.” – Mariétou
Producers like Salimata are the beating heart of our products; they offer their precious talent and expertise to help us create wonderfully sensorial and unforgettable experiences. Salimata taught Mariétou the process of making shea butter, a secret passed down from mother to daughter that fosters a beautiful connection unlike any other.

A Family Connection Through Immortelle
“In some ways I see Nature as my mother, as she helps me to be productive, to achieve things. In other ways, I see Nature as my daughter, as I care for her and try to understand what she needs.” – Pascale Chérubin, a Producer of Immortelle
On Mother’s Day, we are bringing to light women producers like Pascale who embody and spread our mission by caring for nature as they do their children. By Pascale sharing her passion for nature with her children, it has become an important part of their daily lives.

Tu autem, Fanni, quod mihi tantum tribui dicis quantum ego nec adgnosco nec postulo, facis amice; sed, ut mihi videris, non recte iudicas de Catone; aut enim nemo, quod quidem magis credo, aut si quisquam, ille sapiens fuit. Quo modo, ut alia omittam, mortem filii tulit! memineram Paulum, videram Galum, sed hi in pueris, Cato in perfecto et spectato viro.
