In honor of International Women’s Day, L’OCCITANE is introducing a limited-edition Violet- Scented Solidarity Balm to help women’s entrepreneurship flourish across the globe. This precious shea butter ingredient has been used by women in West Africa for centuries to help nourish and protect their skin and hair. L’OCCITANE uses shea butter from Burkina Faso, harvested in a sustainable and fair trade partnership with these women who produce it. Today, L’OCCITANE has enlisted 17,000 women to help with the harvesting and success of their Shea Butter range.
In 2017, L’OCCITANE is expressing their gratitude with a bright and bold design. The violet- scented Solidarity Balm is dressed in patterns inspired by wax fabrics to nourish the lips and pamper the body. With 98% fair trade shea butter and a powdery violet scent, L’OCCITANE Shea Butter has over 50 uses.
The new Solidarity Balm ($6) supports the UN Women Fund for Gender Equality with 100% of profits donated towards women’s leadership.
Available February 15, 2017 at L’OCCITANE boutiques nationwide and online.
