L'Occitane Women's Day Solidarity Ultra Soft Balm

L'Occitane Women's Day Solidarity Ultra Soft Balm

Today is International Women's Day, to mark the occasion and with purpose L'Occitane have launched their annual solidarity product - L'Occitane Women's Day Solidarity Ultra-Soft Balm. Each year on March the 8th L'Occitane launch a product in which has been created to support women within developing countries.

Over the last 30 or so years, L'Occitane and the women of Burkina Faso have built a close bond with the The L'Occitane Foundation providing finical support as well as aid for vital literacy, education and micro-credit programmes, as well as producing the shea butter used in L'Occitaine product collections. What was once a partnership with a mere 12 local women, is now an enterprise with over 17,000 women, all whom produce the versatile ingredient. L’Occitane support these women by donating 100% of profits from the Solidarity Ultra-Soft Balm to fund special projects, and to keep the foundation going strong.

The L'Occitane Solidarity Ultra-Soft Balm is beautifully presented within a bright, bold and pretty handbag-ready sized tin; adorned with patterns inspired by the wax pattern fabrics worn by the Burkinab√© women - often as a symbol of festivity and tradition, all of which are deeply rooted within African cultural heritage. The balm itself is of course shea butter based, gloriously scented with the rich essence of rose. It smells great, feels good on the skin, can be used on any type of dry skin (and even the hair), and more importantly it profits a very worthy cause. At just £4 this may be the most important beauty purchase you make this month.

To be utterly clear I was sent a press sample to feature but as I do every year, I have purchased a further four balms: one for each of my sisters, my Mother and Grandmother. It has become a little tradition and a lovely way for us to mark Women's Day.

You can purchase the L'Occitane Solidarity Ultra-Soft Balm via L'Occitane both in-store and online for £4 - link.
