Shea Butter Collection

At L'OCCITANE, we have a Provence-only rule, but when it comes to special ingredients like organic Shea Butter, we had to make an exception. The women of West Africa have been using Shea Butter for centuries to nourish and protect their hair and skin.

Derived from the fatty kernel contained inside the shea nut, shea butter is intensely nourishing with protecting properties, thanks to being rich in omega’s 3 and 6, and high in the antioxidant vitamin E. Colloquially known as ‘women’s gold’, shea butter has been used by West African countries for centuries to protect the skin from The Harmattan; harsh, dry and dusty winds that blow in from the Sahara.
