L'Occitane Shea Butter Extra Gentle Soap Lavender, 8.8 oz


What is it: A generously sized Shea Butter Extra Gentle Soap in a lavender fragrance.

Who is it for: Suitable for all skin types.

Why is it different: This soap is formulated with a vegetable base and enriched with nourishing shea butter. Shea butter benefits dry skin that is naturally low in oils and flaky, and skin temporarily dehydrated by air conditioning, climate, aggressive products, or diuretics. Shea butter addresses both conditions by supporting the hydrolipidic film that helps skin maintain its natural defenses.

How do I use it: Wet soap and lather in hands.

From L'Occitane.

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 5 out of 5 by So perfect, please make scent in body mist My whole family uses this soap. Foams up like crazy rinses like a dream. It leaves behind such a sheer clean scent and skin feels amazing. Perfect for teenagers, men and just any one who works with others closely. It's infinite clean while the lavender is hardly noticeable but the experience is unforgettable. I will always buy this soap for my family and friends. Awesome house warming or college gift for those who are leaving home. Lasts a long time. I use with scrubby gloves and the lather just explodes! Thank you qvc for carrying this line. 04-25-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by CANNOT BE WITHOUT IT !!!!! I have been using L'Occitane soaps for many years and cannot be without them !!! My personal favorites are lavender and verbena. They last forever, smell heavenly and work wonders on my very dry skin. On rare occasions, I will try something else....but after one shower I am back to my L'Occitane !! When I need more, I always order about 6 of each and store them in my linen closets and of course, my sheets & towels smell just wonderful. Ladies I HIGHLY recommend this soap. 5 STARS ARE JUST NOT ENOUGH! 08-28-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by SOOTHING I have purchased different L'Occitane soaps and I have loved all of them. This Lavender one did not disappoint me. The soaps are so silky and soothing on your skin. I know I can purchase different soaps from a variety of places, however nothing compares to L'Occitane soaps, and I plan to keep purchasing them from QVC because of the wonderful customer service and care that the QVC personnel demonstrate each time I needed assistance. 12-17-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!! This is the first time I have tried L'Occitane and it is the best soap and the Lavender scent smells so nice. I just used it and my skin feels so silky smooth and clean, it gave my skin allot of moisture, it feels like a rose petal, no drying at all to my skin like most bar soaps. I am going to order the hand cream, I know it has to be as nice as the soap. I can't say enough good things about this soap. If anyone hasn't tried this yet, you'll have to order to experience it. I will for sure be buying more of L'Occitane products. 10-28-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shea Butter Soap I am a lavender girl, all the way. I love this gentle soap. It is the only thing I can use on my face. Other products on QVC for cleaning the face burn my skin. l'Occitane is indeed extra gentle, as the name would imply. I love the way it smells. It will take off your makeup; however, I have to rinse well, else it will burn my eyes. Overall, it is the only soap I will use. 08-03-13
