L’Occitane’s Commitment

L’Occitane has been a go-to of mine for holiday gifting (and really any gifting) for years. I’m excited to partner again with them this year to share some great gifting ideas.  My mom got me hooked on the brand because she always (and I mean always) had every sink and shower stocked with L’Occitane’s Verbena soaps and lotions. I always carry a tube of the hand cream with me– and I have one in my nightstand, at my desk, and in my car too. And there’s no bath product quite like their Foaming Lavender Bath.

Holiday Beauty Gift Ideas

One amazing thing about gifting L’Occitane is that you’re gifting more than just luxury bath and body products. You’re gifting a quality, sustainable brand thanks to L’Occitane’s outstanding commitment to the world (both people and the environment).

I love their four pillars for sourcing ingredients:

– Traceability; they work with local farmers to both reduce their carbon footprint, but also to ensure they know exactly where their ingredients are coming from.

– Sustainability; they do not affect endangered species

– Fairness; they build relationships with producers to ensure economic sustainability and consistency

– Quality; they use processes that protect the integrity of their ingredients which is then in turn passed onto consumers in the quality of the products

The company also is committed to fighting preventable blindness (and even includes braille on some of their packaging) and employs women in West Africa for their Shea Butter, providing business training and economic opportunities.

If that’s not a win/win (win…win… win… win…), I don’t know what is.

I’m a big fan of their curated gift boxes. They always include the best-selling products and take a lot of the guesswork out of gifting. (Also, pro tip: I always keep at least one of these boxes on hand for last-minute hostess gifts.)

Here I have the Nourishing Shea Butter Collection, Shea Honey Harvest Collection, and Immortelle Divine Collection (an ultra-luxurious option!). All three come in gorgeous boxes that you don’t even need to wrap… they’re beautiful on their own!

I am so with you on keeping their tubes of hand cream all over the place – they are amazing! And their Shea foaming bath is my absolute favorite bath product. I had no idea about their commitment to sustainability, but it makes me love the brand that much more. On a side note, can I ask where your shirt is from? It is adorable!


Sold! Love the products and as a parent of now three kiddos with Axenfeld caused glaucoma and multiple surgeries, Le Occitane’s commitment to preventable blindness means they’re my brand for luxurious beauty staples here on out. Bravo. Thanks too for all the info Carly. I’d never have known!

Happy Holidays!!!


Thank you for this great post. Their products are amazing, I am especially addicted to the Lavande products but most have been my go to’s for years. They don’t irritate my sensitive skin as even some prescription products do.

I’ve always been a fan of L’Occitane but reading this post I am loving them even more now. Also I always have the hand cream in my purse or carry on when travelling.


Love love love L’Occitane! I love buying their city-themed packaged gift sets whenever I travel internationally – they always make the best gifts.
