At L'OCCITANE, we create "sensorial" products that delight the senses. There is one sense that's particularly important for us - SIGHT. Our initiatives include putting Braille on our packaging; selling fund-raising products; and working with NGOs and UNICEF. We are dedicated to helping the blind and visually impaired; preventing avoidable blindness; and making eye care available to more people around the world.
Vitamin A deficiency is one of the leading causes of childhood blindness.
80% of blindness is preventable.
Every 5 seconds, someone in the world loses their sight.
Much of the funding for our sight-saving work comes from the sale of our Solidarity Soap, which is launched every year with a new design. The money raised goes to support UNICEF's Vitamin A supplementation programmes, to prevent childhood blindness.
IF WE DO NOTHING, the number of visually impaired and blind people will have tripled by 2050.
