L'Occitane was born when 23-year-old Oliver Baussan decided to share his love of natural Provencal beauty and Mediterranean art de vivre all throughout the world. 35 years later, this passion was reignited when he became completely enthralled by the Brazillian culture and lifestyle. He was infatuated with the country’s nature, diversity, art and sincere love of life, and decided to draw from this inspiration with assistance from local artists to birth his new collaborative project, L'Occitane au Brésil.
L'Occitane au Brésil encompasses all the characteristics and values of LÓccitane with an added Brazillian twist.
LÓccitane are all about the au na-tu-ral. That means promoting natural beauty, using natural ingredients and preserving the natural environment. L'Occitane au Brésil draw product inspiration from Brazilian traditions and trends, with a range of masks, conditioners, treatments, lotions and body oils for flawless skin and gorgeous, healthy hair.
These products contain only the richest, most effective, natural Brazilian ingredients and fragrances for your well-being and a pleasant experience for the senses. Each ingredient is 100% traceable and was cultivated by producers employing the local traditions.
The packaging of these products highlights the beauty of the natural Brazilian environment with incredible illustrations by some amazingly talented local artists.
Then, of course, comes L’Occitane’s commitment to the environment, ensuring sustainable use by placing major importance on researching each ingredient so that only the correct ingredients and quantities are used.
The unique union of LÓccitane with Brazilian life has led to the creation of a range of luxurious skin and hair care products, such as their Bromelia Body Oil for moisturising and imparting a sparkling floral fragrance, their Jenipapo Body Lotion that penetrates the skin for deep nourishment whilst leaving behind pleasantly floral and fruity notes, and their Hydrated Curls Leave In enriched with Mandacaru extract to hydrate, reduce frizz and create soft, defined, bouncy curls.
In a world that’s filled with a plethora of cosmetic brands, L’Occitane au Brésil is truly something special. Each product tells its own story and represents a significant aspect of Brazilian nature. This collaboration is a celebration of culture, tradition and natural ecosystems.
