What else you need to know: Olivier Baussan, founder of L'OCCITANE, discovered the benefits of shea butter during a trip to Burkina Faso in the 80’s. He was amazed to learn that women from Burkina Faso traditionally massage shea butter on newborns to protect them against harsh environmental elements (the sun, wind, etc.) and to soothe irritations. People also apply it to soften their skin, relax their muscles, and nourish their hair. Baussan started to establish a sustainable commercial relationship starting from 1981, with women in Burkina Faso, to buy shea butter. Twenty years ago, less than 100 women were producing shea butter for L'OCCITANE, and now more than 15,000 are working in four different groups.
