An Almond Love Affair…


Almonds have long been one of L’OCCITANE’s signature ingredients, featuring in a variety of our most-loved products. We love to celebrate the versatility of the ingredient, and are committed to minimising waste; using every part of the nut that in the confectionary sector often goes to waste, such as the hard shells which acts as a fabulous, natural exfoliant to be utilised as ingredients in our products.

The Almond Revival

Until the beginning of the last century, the almond tree was an emblem of the Provençal landscape. But little by little, almond cultivation was abandoned to make way for more profitable crops such as lavandin, and, by the 1950s and 60s, the tree had all but disappeared from the region. L’OCCITANE is committed to sourcing its almonds from producers in the south of France and the Mediterranean basin in order to help revive this traditional industry.

In France, our historical producer is Jean-Pierre Jaubert, who, since 2002, has replanted over 17,000 almond trees, especially typical Provençal varieties from the Valensole region. His land covers 50 hectares, and his passion and know-how go back three generations. Through multi-year contracts, L’OCCITANE maintains a sustainable partnership and relationship with him working hand-in-hand to ensure sustainable farming practices, using only organic fertilisers. Jean-Pierre Jaubert also installed a rainwater retention basin to avoid over-exploiting the surrounding rivers and built 300 beehives around the almond groves to promote biodiversity.

“Almonds have a special place in my heart because my parents and grandparents grew them before

me. It brings me great joy to follow in their footsteps and continue this family tradition, which I hope to

pass on one day too.” – Jean-Pierre Jaubert, Almond producer
