Do you use Parabens?

We strive to use high-quality, traceable, natural ingredients.  We use over 200 botanical ingredients, a quarter of them organic certified, which are carefully selected for their effectiveness and their ability to give your skin the elements it needs to be beautiful. These ingredients are used at an ideal concentration in our formulas. 

We therefore systematically give priority to natural ingredients whenever possible.  For example, we use vegetable oils in place of oils derived from petrochemicals, as they have a better affinity with the skin.  However to ensure that our products offer optimum safety and effectiveness, we may use synthetic molecules when no reliable and effective natural alternative exists, while always erring on the side of caution.
As a brand who values pure and natural ingredients, L’Occitane has undertaken to remove all Parabens from its products and from January 2014 we were 100% Paraben free.
We are constantly researching new and innovative methods to reduce or remove all together preservative ingredients from our formulations to protect both our customers and the environment.
