L'OCCITANE Caring for Sight Collections

At L’OCCITANE, they want to live in a world where everyone can see and experience the true beauty that nature has to offer. 
L'OCCITANE Caring for Sight Collections
Caring for Sight is one of L’OCCITANE’s six commitments to people and the planet, that plays a central role in all of our activities. A Few facts for you:
  • In 1997, L'Occitane began using Braille on their products where possible, and  continue to do so today.
  • Thanks to The L’OCCITANE Foundation and partners such as UNICEF, in 2020 they met their 10by20 goal. To have helped 10 million beneficiaries of eye care by 2020.
  • L'Occitane being L'Occitane, they have now set an even more ambitious target: to have 15 million beneficiaries gain access to eye care by 2025.
To help achieve this goal, L'Occitane has created three Caring for Sight Collections to celebrate World Sight Day on the 14th October 2021, in previous years the gift has been a candle with a poignant reminder of just how lucky we are. Collaborating with illustrator Ruby Taylor, not only do these bespoke designs have a unique story to tell but Ruby also explores the eternal beauty of nature, the treasure-trove of Provençal ingredients at the heart of L’OCCITANE, and most importantly their commitment to preventing avoidable blindness.  Each one of these Caring for Sight Gift Sets features an array of products that you will be familiar from the line-up of L'Occitane products -  Delicious Almond, Nourishing Shea Butter, Invigorating Verbena and Rose amongst others.

The Caring for Sight collections have been created to celebrate World Sight Day on the 14th October 2021 and increase the number of beneficiaries we are able to reach in order to prevent avoidable blindness; £5 from the sale of every collection will be donated to UNICEF to help fund vitamin A supplementation programs worldwide.

Why Vitamin A? 

285 million people in the world suffer from visual impairment, and in 80% of these cases, subsequent blindness would have been preventable if treated appropriately. Vitamin A deficiency represents one of the leading causes of infantile blindness, which is why L’OCCITANE continues to partner with UNICEF to help fund the development of these programs.

Between 2017 to 2019, L’OCCITANE committed to donating a minimum of 1 million euros per year to UNICEF, and at the end of these years, more than four million children from Myanmar, Bolivia, Papua New Guinea and Niger received the treatments. The eyesight of 2.3 million additional children was protected than initially projected.
We are proud to have committed to a further three years of the partnership between the L’OCCITANE Foundation and UNICEF, with the hope of preventing infantile blindness in more than 3 million children by 2022. This will total 7 million children whose eyesight has been protected since the partnership began in 2017.
So to continue in their efforts, L'Occitane have created these beautiful Caring For Sight gift Collections and £5 from the sale of every collection will be donated to UNICEF to help fund vitamin A supplementation programs worldwide.
