Questions?

What exactly is an organic ingredient?

An organic ingredient is one that is derived from organic agriculture and which, under European legislation that took effect in 1991, must comply with certain basis rules, including:

  • Respecting the ecosystem by using cultivation and breeding methods that strive to maintain natural balances.
  • Using no genetically modified organisms (CMOs).
  • Mandatory inspection by an organic certification body — this applies to both the procedures and processors of organic products.
  • Traceability back to the source area of the plant, whatever the country of production. In parallel, on an international scale, the NOP (National Organic Program) regulation were introduced in the United States in 2002, while the JAS (Japan Agricultural Standard) was introduced in Japan in 2000.

What exactly is an organic beauty product?

An organic beauty product must comply with more stringent standards than the conventional regulations on cosmetic products. These standards guarantee respect for the environment throughout the production chain, respect for the consumer, and a positive emphasis on the natural substances of superior ecological quality. Our organic cosmetic products comply with the specifications of Ecocert, which has produced a list of authorized ingredients and insists on:

  • A minimum of 95% natural ingredients or ingredients of natural origin
  • A minimum of 95% of the total plant ingredients certified organic
  • A minimum of 10% of the total ingredients certified organic
  • Synthetic fragrances or colorants, silicones and mineral oils are not permitted. Only certain essential synthetic ingredients are authorized when no natural alternative is available.

Why doesnt L'Occitane make all of its beauty products organic?

Our approach to organic beauty products is a realistic one. We would like to develop this offering in collaboration with Ecocert, while also taking into account existing constraints; the availability of resources from organic agriculture, the ability to maintain a products cosmetic and sensory qualities, and obtaining the most effective formula. Suffice it to say, our entire product range will always live up to the highest standards in terms of quality and naturalness.

Are L'Occitane products safe for the skin?

Yes. The rules that govern our products on a European and international level are very strict and continually updated to reflect the latest scientific developments. Moreover, for every new product launched, we provide a very complete safety file. We systematically conduct tests to ensure that our products are gentle on the skin: skin irritation tests for our skincare or hygiene products; eye irritation tests for products aimed at the eye area; use tests lasting several weeks under the supervision of dermatologists and/or op ophthalmologists for face care products. All tests are carried out by independent laboratories approved by the Ministry of Health.

Are your products effective on the skin?

Yes. Before active ingredients are used in a product, we test their effectiveness, and the results of our research are patented. Once a formula has been developed, we evaluate is effectiveness through in vitro tests or tests for face care formulas.

Do you use recyclable packaging?

Our concern for the environment has lad to the use of environmentally friendly packaging and a minimum amount of unnecessary packing material. We also encourage our customers to recycle their packaging in order to:

  • Save on natural resources by reusing waste, with the aim of recovering reusable materials or energy.
  • Reduce the amount of landfilled or incinerate waste

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by OMG I just received it and OMG this smells sooooo good, one of my best purchases at QVC thank you. By chance do you sell the shower oil to make it a total body coverage. 06-08-16
Rated 3 out of 5 by Packaging issue The product itself is great. The scent is very aromatic and soothing. The only issue I have is the bottle spray. Since the product is of oil base it becomes pretty difficult to use the spray once you spray it once. It becomes slippery and dexterity wise not practical. 04-17-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love love love I have long been an oil girl. Use to use baby oil. I'm so glad to have a grown up oil to use. This is a wonderful smell and hydrating too. I'm ordering more and also want the almond shower oil but it's not on the web site please get more 01-03-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love The Almond This body wash not only smells great but leaves your skin feeling hydrated and soft. I also really like the almond hand cream. 12-18-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Must Have I have diabetes and have over the years developed the dry, ugly all over skin that comes with the disease. I have tried numerous products for many years, but nothing yields the results of smooth, supple, "natural" feeling skin that is delivered from the use of L'Occitane products, in particular, this skin body oil. I urge anyone with diabetic skin to give this a try. I hope that you will have the results I did. And did I mention you will smell lovely as well? 11-21-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by And I thought I didn't like body oils... This body oil is incredible. Supple skin is a perfect description of what this produces. I didn't know my skin could feel like this. I am a moisturizing fanatic, but this takes things to a new level. To top it off, the smell is relaxing and kind of seductive. Well, it is! I added several things in the L'Occitane line a couple of weeks ago to replace my summer time bath and body products. I use Bobbi Brown Beach...everything. I was sad to give it up during the cooler months, but I just like something with a warmer feel during the Fall and Winter. I seriously don't know if I will be able to give this up next Spring. I'll worry about that later. Right now, I am just going to enjoy my new find! (It is expensive, but a little goes a long way.) 11-15-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Intoxicating, Delicicious Scent! I think this is an oil best saved for bare skin, like in spring and fall, or for special nights when someone will get close. (Of course, if I had unlimited funds, I'd buy a thousand bottles and wear it every day even if it was in the winter under a sweater where only I would smell it!) It is so light and unobtrusive. It is moisturizing, I would say from shower to shower, or bath to bath. L'Occitane is worth the money and makes an amazing gift this time of the year. It's showing someone in your life that they deserve a bit of luxury! 11-10-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by Wanted to love this... I love this scent, but the oil actually dried out my skin. Surprising since all the reviews are pretty good on this oil. I will just stick with my Josie Maran argan oil from now on. 11-21-14
