I’m not sure we’ve ever felt as collectively driven to do our part to care for and repair our planet as we do at this point in time. With that in mind, I wanted to take a short moment to chat about an easy way to introduce sustainable beauty into your everyday life with L’occitane Eco Refills.
I’ve also got highlights of the two latest eco-beauty launches from L’occitane! Shall we get started?
L’occitane & Sustainability
L’occitane has a strong ethos of protecting the crops they farm and ensuring the sustainability of the ingredients. It would therefore come as no surprise that the brand would of course offer some great eco-friendly options of their best selling products!
I wanted to introduce you to a couple of my favourites!
L’occitane Eco Refills
The eco refill system is great. Once you’ve devoured your favourite item simply stock up with a L’occitane eco refill and reuse the bottle or jar again!
You all know how much I simply adore the Almond range and the shower oil is no exception (you can read my thoughts here) so being able to top up so easily and in an eco-friendly manner is perfect!
I was overjoyed when L’occitane introduced eco-refills in the Precious Foaming Cleansing! It’s a perfect non-stripping foaming cleanser that my skin adores first thing.
The eco refills come in varying sizes to suit your desires and needs, contain 90% less packaging weight and are recyclable.
Eco refills are available in the liquid soap, hand wash, bath, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and oil, to Almond milk concentrate and more.
From the 27th-30th May L’occitane are running a fantastic initiative! They will donate £5 for every purchase made of eco refills to Surfers Against Sewage!
Surfers Against Sewage is a charity that works on causes such as plastic pollution and climate change.
Could there be any better reason to stock up on your favourite L’occitane Eco Refills?
You can learn more about the charity and their work here: Surfers Against Sewage
Excitingly I have two new launches to share with you today! They are both excellent sustainable beauty options too!
At L’OCCITANE, we’ve been focusing on ways to reduce, reuse and recycle for many years, but there’s still more we can do. And we’re working on it!L’occitane
L’occitane Shea Butter Déodorant Balm
First up is L’occitane Shea Butter Deodorant Balm. If natural deodorants are your thing or if you’ve been waiting to try one, then this latest launch may just be for you!
L’occitane’s Shea Butter Deodorant Balm is a creamy formula that dries to a velvet finish, completely non-staining to clothes.
Containing nourishing shea butter it is also caring to the skin and is formulated without aluminium, salt and alcohol.
- 98% Natural origin ingredients

As to be expected, the packaging is fully recycable!
L’occitane Solid Shampoo Bar
Next, the L’occitane Solid Shampoo Bar! A welcome launch, the Shampoo Bar comes in 3 versions to suit all hair types and is a great reduction in packaging.
Designed to care for both hair and the planet the solid shampoo bar contains plant-derived ingredients to cleanse hair of grease, oil and dirt and infuses the scalp with essential oils and prebiotic complex for good PH balance. Think of pleasant smells of lemon, chamomile, lavender and orange.
L’occitane’s Solid Shampoo Bar is plastic-free and made with 98% biodegradable ingredients. The packaging is created from 100% recycled paper and is fully recyclable.
Expect a luxuriously, sensorial shampoo experience!
Free from silicones and sulfates.
While we’re talking about the planet, did you know that L’occitane offers a free recycling programme? They have a partnership with Terracycle where you can recycle any beauty products in a L’occitane store!
You can find out more here, plus what items can and can’t be recycled.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little chat and introduction into some of the great ways that the brand is working to become more eco friendly. And if you need to top up on some goodies why not grab some L’occitane eco refills this week, during the Green Day initiative knowing your shopping is doing good twice over!
