Fondation L'OCCITANE
A VIEW OF TOMORROW

Since its creation in 1976, L'OCCITANE has nurtured simple values: authenticity, respect and sensoriality. This is not just our philosophy, it is our commitment to give back, carried on by our founder Olivier Baussan and held by employees.

After 30 years of support to associative projects, in 2006, L'OCCITANE created its Foundation to drive these initiatives and support NGOs in two fields of action. We support the visually impaired and promote women's entrepreneurship in Burkina Faso. Our average annual budget of €1,000,000 enables the L'OCCITANE Foundation to finance around fifteen projects every year.

The Foundation works hand in hand with 13 L'OCCITANE subsidiaries that wish to take action in their own countries to help the blind and partially sighted like the United States and China.

L'OCCITANE employees play an important role in these actions. Two volunteer associations, supported by the Foundation focus their efforts on Burkina Faso. The Nord et Sud association concentrates on training women in soap making, while Women's Projects raises funds internally to enable women to set up their own income-generating activities.

In addition to its Foundation, L'OCCITANE also supports projects to preserve the knowledge of nature in Provence – to develop strong links with the region where the company was born.
