A woman’s gentle touch is key to the quality of the shea butter, the L’occitane Foundation pays tribute to their work for International Women’s Day on March 8th. All the profits* of the new Ultra Soft Balm will be donated to NGOs which support women’s leadership.
With thirty years of cooperation, L’occitane and the women of Burkina Faso have an undeniably strong bond. As the keepers of their land which are dedicated to the production of shea butter,which cultivation of this precious substance requires much patience. Enchanted by the meticulous work of these women, L’occitane guides no fewer than 17,000 women in producing shea butter. Today there are no fewer than 17,000 women involved in cooperatives.
