Continuous improvement

Like any company with a human dimension, L'OCCITANE cannot claim to be perfect. However, we do continually endeavor to improve ourselves and to show our entrepreneurial spirit. In this way, we aim to contribute not only to the well-being of our customers and employees, but also to that of the world around us. Within this context, the creation of the L’OCCITANE Foundation in 2006 has strengthened and given further impetus to the efforts undertaken for more than 30 years.
