As you may well know one of my favourite French brands is L'OCCITANE and it will always have a special place in my 
"Beauty Heart"
 and that's all thanks to the founder Olivier Baussan. 
I wonder if he had any comprehension back in 1976, at the age of 23, just what he was creating, 
as this year L'OCCITANE celebrates its 40th Anniversary. 
This young man had passion, vision and armed with nothing but an alambic, a small truck and a solid knowledge of plants the L’OCCITANE journey began. 
With his distilled Rosemary essential oil he set off to sell his first of many products in his local boyhood markets in Provence. 
His first Boutique opened in 1981 in the small Provençal town of Volx and as they say the rest is history, as this hugely successful international brand has worked its way into many hearts around the world, just like it has in mine.

Along this journey Olivier Baussan ensured that L'OCCITANE nurtured simple values: 


This is more than a philosophy; it is a commitment that, over the years, has influenced many of the company's important decisions. 
All of their actions and choices have been guided by a twofold desire: to preserve and to pass on. 
It is this that gives the brand its life force, its meaning and its purpose.

One such decision was taken in 1997 and that, as a sensorial brand, was to feature Braille labelling on its products.Through braille labelling, it allowed L'OCCITANE products to be accessible to the visually impaired. 
The L'OCCITANE Foundation was set up and in 2001
partnered with ORBIS, an international NGO that fights blindness 
(The World Health Organization estimates that 80% of blindness is preventable or curable)

 L’OCCITANE South Africa have recently partnered with The South African National Council for the Blind to visit the Nokuphila Primary School in Tembisa Gauteng to provide comprehensive eye care screening, treatment ,spectacles, skills transfer to teachers and referrals to children in need of eye care support.
