Shea Butter

We’d only make an exception to our Provence-only rule for a very special ingredient - the inimitable Shea Butter. Used for centuries by Sub-Saharan African women to nourish and protect skin and hair, Shea Butter is an ideal beauty ingredient. We work with several thousand women in Burkina Faso to develop a sustainable, fair trade Shea Butter supply chain. So you can feel good about feeling good.
THE TRUE STORY OF SHEA BUTTER! Men and women form different cultures, working on the same product with the same devotion, bringing people together through a special bond – the very basis of a lasting relationship. This is the essence of the wonderful Shea Butter story that has united L’Occitane with the women of Burkina Faso for so many years” - Olivier Baussan, founder of L’OCCITANE.
