The Source of Our Almond Range


Until the beginning of the last century, the almond was a strong symbol of the Provençal landscape. Naturally nourishing qualities of Almond extract found in our body care products help achieve the appearance of smoother skin.
Threatened by new, more profitable crops and the mechanisation of agriculture, the almond tree became rare in the region after the 1930's. To help almond farmers, and to make the long-forgotten almond tree once again a familiar feature of the Provençal landscape, L’OCCITANE is committed to sourcing its almonds used in L'OCCITANE body care products from producers in the south of France.
For one such almond producer, Jean-Pierre and Pauline Jaubert, the passion for almonds is handed down from father to daughter. For several years, Jean-Pierre Jaubert has cultivated 10,000 almond trees on the Valensole plateau in Haute-Provence. «When you watch the bees as they come and gather pollen from the almond blossoms, then when you see that the flowers have become fruits, you tell yourself that you did the right thing by launching into this adventure.»
