L’occitane en Provence, meaning “the Occitan woman” is a french skincare brand founded in Manosque, France by Olivier Baussan in the mid 90’s. L’occitane started when Olivier decided to start making soaps to preserve the traditions that were passed down in his family for generations. He sold his soaps at weekly markets to the local women, and pretty soon people from around the world were coming to the small village to buy his soap. Made with ingredients such as rosemary, lavender, and honey, his soaps soon gained popularity. His company spread across Europe like wildfire and in 1978 he opened his first boutique and bought a soap factory so that he could manufacture the amount of soap he needed to keep his customers happy.
Over the years his clientele started to ask him if he sold any other products besides soap, and so Olivier went back to work and created a skincare line, and then… hand creams, which were and are still known today as his bestselling product. His name has become recognized among models and gurus as one of the best hand cream brands in the world and he has gone on to create numerous other companies in different fields.
