L’Occitane Lends a Hand for International Women’s Day

By  March 05, 2012

March 8th marks International Women’s Day, a holiday to celebrate the achievements of women worldwide. To commemorate the special day, L’Occitane has just released its limited edition Women’s Day Soap. It’s formulated with a high concentration of Shea butter to moisturize and nourish skin and is engraved with “Women’s Day” in six languages. The soap comes wrapped in colorful packaging inspired by the vibrant patterns of the dresses worn by the women of Burkina Faso on the holiday. Produced in the African country as part of a co-development partnership with a local factory run by women, 100% of the proceeds benefit the L’Occiatne Foundation and NGO Aide et Action to fund the building of literacy centers for women throughout the country.
