A delicious blend of almond butter and almond oil, infused with crushed almond shells and sugar crystals, this exfoliating butter offers perfect exfoliation for the entire body. Almond is well-known for its ability to nourish the skin. L’Occitane has harnessed the exceptional beautifying power of almond from the south of France and integrated it in body care and toiletries that are both deliciously tempting and wonderfully effective.
How To Use – Apply onto damp skin using light massaging movements, always from bottom to top to stimulate skin micro-circulation. Focus on areas that tend to be rough (heels, knees, elbows…) then rinse. Product Plus: a mouthwatering moist texture that transforms into light milk when in contact with water.
While exploring his native Provence nearly 25 years ago, Olivier Baussan created L’Occitane by capturing the region’s most subtle fragrances and blending them with natural ingredients. Using the traditional method of extraction, he developed L’Occitane’s very first products based on essential oils extracted from local plants.
From his rustic roots in Provence, Olivier dreamed of discovering new horizons, to travel beyond his native land and experience other cultures. In keeping with this spirit, L’Occitane developed a humanitarian-partnership with African women. In the Burkina Faso village in Africa, the native women harvest Shea nuts and are the co-producers of L’Occitane’s complete Shea Butter Collection. Thus, it is a tale of Provence meets Africa on ethical grounds.
Today, L’Occitane focuses on protecting the fading traditions and vanishing techniques that everyone should be enjoying. L’Occitane breathes new life into these authentic customs by recreating the genuine articles such as its famous “Marseilles Soaps” as well as the revival of its Verbena and Lavender Harvests each year.
