*This is a special episode to celebrate International Women's Day in partnership with L'Occitane *
In this episode I learn the story behind a brand that is really very special to me. When I was 20 and living in Paris, my Mum and I discovered L'Occitane and were hooked. It was the beginning of a twenty odd year relationship that has seen us gifting each other countless products and whooping with excitement when it finally came over to the UK.
What Mum and I have never known is the story behind L'Occitane and how right from its fledgling days, it was a brand that truly cared about both the environment and empowering women.
During the episode I get to know the amazing Alia Hawa who is the MD for L'Occitane UK and Ireland. She tells me about her journey with L'Occitane and the incredible and inspirational story of its founder Olivier Baussan.
Later in the episode we hear from some of The Outspoken Panellists who have been trialling the cult L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream. As ever they give their no holes barred, honest reviews of the product.
Finally, Mummy Bonn joins me to chat briefly about our memories of L'Occitane.
This is a lovely episode that celebrates women and the good that the beauty industry can do.
