Olivier Baussan founded French cosmetics company L'Occitane en Provence when he was just 23 years old. The first word of the brand’s name translates to "the woman from Occitania." Occitania is a region in Southern Europe where residents traditionally spoke Occitan. The company began with a boutique in Provence before expanding internationally. Still, Baussan has not forgotten the brand’s roots. The company continues to rely on local ingredients from Provence such as rose and lavender.
