L'OCCITANE en Provence
"My favorite make-up, and skin care source L'OCCITANE en Provence"
Here is the rundown on the company.
Natural Products _
We carefully select our plant ingredients and control both their quality and origin. We follow the principles of phytotherapy and aromatherapy, use no animal products (except for beehive products: honey, royal jelly and propolis) and test our products under medical supervision. We strive to use natural ingredients in all our product formulas. We prefer to use plant oils in our face care formulas rather than mineral oils. We limit the use of silicones, chemical sunscreens, paraben preservatives and also offer Ecocert-certified organic formulas.
The Environment _
Our active ingredients are of plant origin and, as far as possible, derived from organic agriculture. Both our products and the materials used in our stores are designed to respect the environment. We limit the use of packing material and the cardboard, paper and wood that we use comes from sustainably managed forests. Our production factory also sorts and recycles its waste and limits its energy consumption.
For 30 years we have chosen not to test our products on animals. We have also been committed to supporting traditional production methods by using AOC (controlled origin label) ingredients certified by Ecocert and through co-development (Shea Butter in Burkina Faso). _
Pretty impressive and the products are wonderful!! Here are some of my favs. I use their line for sensitive skin.
