The role of these scientists? To develop the best possible formulas based on botanical ingredients made in Provence: Almonds, Lavender, Immortelle, Cade

Composition, texture, fragrance… everyday the whole team at the L’Occitane laboratory focuses on creating innovative, quality cosmetics inspired by the principles of aromatherapy and of aromachologie. In all, 250 exclusive formulas are developed each year !

Respect and authenticity are at the core of the researchers’ concerns, as they focus on extracting the best from plants to respond to the needs of all skin types. In 2009, the Provençale company put in place a pioneering Cosmetogenomic program in order to demonstrate the effectiveness of natural active ingredients on our genes… They have a constant concern for innovation and for improving the effectiveness of their products – testified to by no less than 22 patents registered since 2001 – and thus making science nature’s greatest ally.
