In the 14th century, villagers in what is now the Provence region of France told of a legend surrounding the herb that is now referred to as angelica. According to the legend, the Archangel Michael descended from heaven and pointed the herb out to a local monk, explaining that it could provide protection from the plague. To this day, angelica is steeped in tea and chewed as a medicinal treatment by those who make their homes in Provence, but now the benefits of angelica are more than just the stuff of legend.

Additional L'Occitane Products Information
With a name derived from "angel," the angelica herb has long been seen as a miraculous plant, capable of healing the body. The L'Occitane Angelica Products collection features formulas centered on angelica extract to moisturize, tone and protect the complexion.
The L'Occitane Angelica UV Shield SPF 40 is a daily moisturizer and a highly protective sunscreen in one. The luxurious formula helps to draw moisture from the air to hydrate tissue that is parched and dry, making it suppler and softer to the touch. The moisturizing benefits of the formula last for a full 24 hours. The sunscreen present in the formula fully shields the skin from UVA and UVB rays with broad-spectrum protection.
The L'Occitane Angelica Hydration Cream is a pampering moisturizer, which boosts hydration levels in the skin to fight dryness for up to 24 hours. Intended for normal to dry skin, the cream also contains antixodiants that neutralize free radicals to fight the effects of wrinkle-producing oxidative damage. The cream does not contain a sunscreen and is ideal for use as a nightly moisturizer.
The L'Occitane Angelica Eye Roll On treatment makes it easy to provide the skin under and around the eyes with the benefits of angelica extract. The formula comes in a tube with a roller top, which glides over the skin and leaves behind a blend of skin-nourishing ingredients. The eye treatment helps to minimize dark circles, alleviate under eye bags, moisturize dry skin and battle crow's feet with each use.
