L'Occitane Continues its Commitment to Provence!

Implicated in the Upper Provence Alps region since 1976, when Olivier Baussan set up the company, L’OCCITANE continues its commitment to the transmission of natural and cultural heritage with le Mécénat Provence, a project that continues developing year after year.
By Justine Fiordelli

Respect, authenticity, sensory pleasure: these are the main values transmitted by L'OCCITANE, which has always been in favor of the preservation and transmission of nature’s knowledge and know-how. Enriching its engagements alongside 30 key players in the region as part of the Mécénat Provence program, the brand now extends its support to three new major partners: the Mediterranean Botanical Conservatory of Porquerolles, which over the past 37 years has been preserving the natural heritage of the Mediterranean region; the association Semailles in Avignon which acts in favor of organically grown flowers and hiring long-term unemployed people; but also Okhra, the Ochre and Color Conservatory located in Roussillon that seeks to transmit the traditional knowledge from its area of expertise.

With these three new collaborations, L’OCCITANE takes on the challenge of continuing its longstanding engagement in Upper Provence, and hopes to reach the objectives it has set itself: to support the work of men and women who keep the region of Provence alive, to preserve living knowledge, and to support the implementation of a cultural program composed of meetings, forums and exhibitions. Such fine projects to look forward to!
