New products to repair hair and skin, battle aging

L’Occitane is globally known for its wide range of body, face and home products that are based on essential oils and rich with active natural ingredients.

Originating from the southern part of France, L’Occitane preserves the beauty and tradition of the Mediterranean, using authentic and fine natural ingredients.

Since Olivier Baussan’s brand conception in 1976, L’Occitane continues to inspire a lifestyle of natural beauty.

For hair repair, L’Occitane offers a new repairing complex with five essential oils—geranium, lavender, ylang-ylang, sweet orange and angelica. The new repairing hair ritual consisting of a  shampoo, conditioner, mask and oil is specially formulated to treat dry, weakened and brittle hair, leaving it soft, light and revived from roots to tips.

For over 30 years, L’Occitane has united essential oils with the principles of aromachology in its hair-care ranges. Five time-tested, traditional essential oils are brought together to act in synergy on the hair.

Divine Cream, the best-selling and award-winning anti-aging cream, now has a new formulation.

L’Occitane introduces seven naturally derived active ingredients that will dramatically boost the already impressive properties of “immortelle” plant extracts.

Divine Cream promises instant skin rejuvenation as it acts at the heart of epidermal cells.

Divine Cream is proven to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots, and effectively helps restore and redefine facial contours.

The series has four products: Divine Lotion, Divine Extract, Divine Cream and Divine Eyes.

New scents

L’Occitane Verbena is a fragrance line noted for its zesty smell of freshly squeezed lemons and freshly picked green leaves of verbena.

L’Occitane announces an addition to the collection—Mint Verbena, eau de toilette for men and women.

The addition combines citrus fruits and lemon zest scent with a bouquet of spearmint and peppermint.

Another addition, Citrus Verbena, offers a light twist on the original scent by emphasizing graceful fruity and tangy notes underlined by citrus essential oils.

For the skin, L’Occitane offers its skin-perfecting serum—Sublime Essence. Its fresh, sheer texture helps keep the skin hydrated for 24 hours and reduce the visibility of pores, blemishes and redness.

Enriched with extracts of organic angelica and iris, the Sublime Essence formula is silicone-free and can be used on any skin type or tone.

When applied before L’Occitane’s Sublime Beauty Cream, a BB cream that is enriched with UV filters and which provides SPF 30 sun protection, the skin will look flawless and fresh.

L’Occitane is distributed in the Philippines by Stores Specialists Inc. and is available at Rustan’s Department Store and Essenses.
