One of L’Occitane's essential ingredients, shea butter has really established a name for itself as the standout product in nourishing care products. Moisturising, regenerating, firming, relaxing and healing... this miracle balm is blessed with unrivalled properties and is especially popular for its ability to ward off the effects of cold and wintry weather.

OUR ALLY FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
A solid beige paste in its natural state, shea butter becomes a rich and smooth cream once warmed up in the palm of the hand. Especially popular in winter, it is unquestionably the ideal, nourishing care product for removing signs of discomfort and for defending against external aggressors, such as redness and dryness caused by the cold.
An extra touch: apply Ultra Rich Comforting Cream with Shea Butter to your face and neck in the morning and at night during winter. Rich in omega 6 and with a soft and melting texture, it feels comfortable throughout the day giving you optimal nutrition, perfect during cold spells for dry and very dry skins.
THE CURE FOR DAMAGED HAIR
With its rare velvety texture, this miracle balm is just the thing for very dry hair types thanks to its effective moisturising action, restoring suppleness and softness. Rich in vitamins A, D, E and F, it has exceptional regenerating properties, earning it a place in beauty cases as the indisputable must-have item for the winter.
An extra touch: go for L’Occitane Fabulous Oil, by applying one or two sprays to the palm of your hands. Then apply this precious substance to your hair by sliding your fingers through it like a comb, while avoiding the roots. Soft and shiny, your hair will have nothing to fear when the temperature drops!
THE SANCTUARY FOR SENSITIVE AREAS
Hands, feet, lips and noses are all especially vulnerable to the cold, so your extremities need extra special care during the cold season. Forming a natural protective barrier, shea butter is one of the industry's favourites for its ability to heal and limit the risk of cracking, irritations and those other little nuisances that winter brings.
An extra touch: applied as a repairing cream or rich balm, this special butter has deep-acting effectiveness. To combine the practical with the enjoyable, feel free to massage your feet and hands, and make the most of an extremely relaxing well-being time-out, which will envelop you in a soft and silky veil.
