L'Ooccitane en Provence founder Olivier Baussan developed his cooperative after discovering that West African women were able to earn their own money by crushing and churning shea nuts into butter. Baussan's foundation started small but today consists of 11,000 participants who work to create literacy centers, free medical programs and child care in the region. Purchase L'Ooccitane's limited time fragrances consisting of 25% shea butter content not simply to smell divine but to show support for the women of Burkina Faso.
