Shea Butter

L'OCCITANE is known for shea butter and has been producing shea butter beauty products for over 30 years. We source this ingredient from Burkina Faso, Africa and use it in our body care, hair care and skin care lines. The shea nut is harvested and ground into a rich vegetable butter that offers multiple benefits for the skin: protecting, nourishing, moisturising, soothing, comforting, healing and regenerating.

THE TRUE STORY OF SHEA BUTTER! In that distant land grows the sacred Shea tree - also called “Women’s Gold”, as only the local women are entrusted with the delicate process of creating its Shea Butter, and benefit from its trade. Through a long-standing partnership, L’OCCITANE buys Shea Butter at a fair price directly from three women’s cooperatives, thus assisting 14,000 women in building a brighter future for themselves and their families. 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.
