We are committed to fight blindness since 2000

Part of the worldwide fight for blindness prevention, global L'OCCITANE Foundation along with L'OCCITANE Israel has donated this year 10,000 Euro to the Israeli association "LIROT".

BRAILLE LABELS

If you ever noticed the nubs on L'OCCITANE's product packing and you wondered what is it all about, you should know that it's not a fashion statement but a society statement. The oval vertical bullets along the product packing are actually Braille labels stamped on all our products worldwide.

Social Engagement

From the very beginning L'OCCITANE EN PROVANCE has been highly committed to exceptional social engagement. L’OCCITANE has used shea butter from Burkina Faso in its products. To reinforce this partnership, the L’OCCITANE Foundation supports the economic emancipation of local women with literacy programs and the promotion of entrepreneurial projects.<br>
In Burkina Faso, the foundation extended its philantropy activity to blindness prevention.

Avoidable Blindness

The foundation team and aid associations in Africa realized that major part of blindness, mainly among children, is cause by neglect and lack of attention. The numbers are astonishing: almost 285 million people are blind or visually impaired, whereas 80% of blindness is avoidable. This problem affects particularly the low - or medium - income countries, where over 90% of the visually impaired live.
In this context, the Foundation decided to get involved in this subject by funding NGOs projects to fight avoidable blindness around the world and by contributing to ophthalmologic research and local specialists’ training.
