Happy International Women’s Day

March 8th marks International Women’s Day and we invite you to join L’Occitane in celebrating this special day with a limited-edition Women’s Day Soap.

The women of Burkina Faso, Africa celebrate this holiday each year by wearing festive clothing, decorated with a different motif every year. For just $8, you too can commemorate this day with L’Occitane’s fund-raising, fair trade soap. The Women’s Day Soaps are produced in Burkina Faso as part of a development partnership with a local factory. The factory has been run entirely by women since 2010 and supports their economic emancipation.

About the soap:
-The L’Occitane Foundation and NGO will use 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the soap to help build literacy centers for women in Burkina Faso.
-Made by the women in Burkina Faso
-Formulated with shea butter (52%) from a fair trade producer
-Engraved with “Women’s Day” in six languages
-Enclosed in a box decorated with a motif inspired by Burkina Faso’s 2010 Women’s Day clothing

The limited-edition Women’s Day Soap is available at and in over 160 boutiques throughout the U.S.
