Just like the face, the skin of our hands is particularly sensitive, so taking care of this area of the body is an essential part of your beauty routine. By applying your favorite L’Occitane hand care products daily, your hands will feel healthy, smooth, hydrated and beautiful.

1. Let’s start with a hand care staple: Our hand soaps
There has never been a more important time to take care of your hands and hand wash regularly than now. This is why at L'Occitane we have developed an entire series of products to meet your needs. It is true that you can take the easy way and opt for our hand sanitizers, but we would advise to pair it with washing your hands on a regular basis. Our hand wash, liquid soap or brand new bar soaps with delicate fragrances should help you take the plunge. With new developed scents such as Lemon and Tangerine, Linden and Sweet Orange and Rhubarb and Basil these scented soaps will be your best allies during this time. If you are more on the classic side, we can’t recommend our lavender soap enough!
If you have already purchased one of our liquid hand soaps and kept the container, discover our hand soap refills for an economic refill of your favorite scented soaps!
Finish your hand care routine by applying hand lotion and voilà! You are set to go on with your day with clean and smooth feeling hands.

2. Our iconic hand creams, hand lotions and foot cream:
We could not talk about L'Occitane hand care products without a special mention to our best selling categories.L’Occitane has always been well known for its wide offer of hand creams, but the one that keeps stealing the show is our best-selling Shea butter hand cream.

Be warn, once you try it, it's hard to stop!

Aside from this iconic metal tube, we offer a wide range of other hand creams and hand moisturizers to please everyone.

During the winter, we highly recommend switching to richer and more balmy textures, to bring you extra comfort. The Shea butter hand cream is our go to choice, however, if you have very dry skin and prefer even richer textures opt for our Shea Butter intensive hand balm, enrich with 25% of shea butter, this one is our best hand cream for the winter. We know that during the winter months, our skin is exposed to cooler temperatures that translates to drier skin. Apart from taking care of your hands, remember to give some love to your feet, with our Shea Butter intensive foot balm.
During the summer, look for fast absorbing, refreshing formulas such as our light textured lavender hand cream or rose hand cream. We also offer gel formulas and for those looking for freshness, check out the verbena classic hand cream or the verbena citrus hand cream. For a delicate fragrance on your hands, we recommend our scented hand creams: almond hand cream, cherry blossom hand cream, just to name a few!
