L’Occitane Women’s Day Ultra Soft Lip Balm

01KTSOL16 Ultra Soft Balm Rose Shea-SMALL

Happy Women’s Day! Celebrate this day with an International Women’s Day special edition lip balm from L’Occitane.

Over 30 years, L’Occitane has formed a strong bond with the women of Burkina Faso of West Africa, and these ladies have been the keepers of their land’s best kept secret: the production of shea butter. Today, there are no fewer than 17,000 women involved in cultivating this precious substance that requires patience. The gentle touch of these women is the key in producing shea butter, and to pay tribute to their meticulous work, the L’Occitane Foundation has come up with the Ultra Soft Balm, especially for this special day.

This nourishing and protective lip balm abounds in ancestral African expertise, and its subtle rose fragrance brings forth a touch of sensuous and full-on femininity when concentrated with 98.6% of shea butter. The lip balm is available in bright hues reminiscent of the African wax print fabric, which has been known worldwide as more than just a textile, and is a symbol of festivity and tradition of the African cultural heritage.

All profits made from the purchases will be donated to NGOs that support women’s leadership.
