Every year, to mark International Women’s Day on March 8th, L’OCCITANE pays tribute to the women of Burkina Faso.
It was in Burkina Faso, in the early 1980s, that Olivier Baussan first discovered shea butter – an exceptionally talented ingredient that both nourishes and protects.
Since then, over 30 years of shared history have built a bond between L’OCCITANE and the women of Burkina Faso. To keep this bond strong, the L’OCCITANE Foundation has chosen to focus its actions on their economic emancipation by supporting, in particular, literacy, training and microcredit programmes in Burkina Faso.
With the support of the L’OCCITANE Foundation, 100% of profits* from the sale of this balm will be donated to organizations that promote women’s entrepreneurship. The Ultra Soft Balm is an apricot-scented, multi-purpose moisturizer made with 96% shea butter – the multi-talented beauty ingredient. Ultra-nourishing and protective, it can be used on the lips, body and hair, and slips easily into your handbag, so you can keep it with you wherever you go.
