L’Occitane team up with UNICEF for charity soap

L’Occitane make some of the most luxurious beauty products on the market and now they have launched a new charity line. 

The French company have recently formed an allegiance with UNICEF, producing a new product called Solidarity Soap.

Any of the profits generated from sales of Solidarity Soap will be donated to eye-health projects run by NGOs in developing countries.

L’Occitane outlined their programme on their official website:

In developing countries, up to 500,000 children go blind each year because of Vitamin A deficiency. L’OCCITANE is proud to support UNICEF’s International Vitamin A Supplementation Programme and will donate 100% of profits* from the sale of this soap to support this vital cause.

1 soap = 1 year of Vitamin A for 3 children

Wrapped in natural craft paper highlighted by vivid tones of blue and green, this little shea butter soap is a step to ending childhood blindness throughout the world.

Designed by a 9-year old artist name Célestin, its fun and sweet eye pattern conceals a lush bar of shea butter soap, with a creamy texture that cleanse the skin while enveloping it with a soft perfume.”
