The benefits of the Angelica archanglica plant have been known for centuries, which is why it is used as one of the basic ingredients in the L’Occitane Angelica line of wonderful skin care products. Used as a natural botanical treatment for centuries, this aromatic biennial herb is grown throughout Europe, but the essential oils and root extracts used by L’Occitane en Provence are taken from plants harvested in the Drôme region of southern France. It is used in L’Occitane Angelica products to boost skin health and for its soothing effect.
Additional L'Occitane Angelica Information
At the same time, all of the L’Occitane Angelica creams and lotions contain borage seed oil (derived from the Borago officinalis plant) and oil from the bark of the tropical evergreen tree, Amyris balsamifera, to provide additional benefits for skin care. These ingredients have been used in traditional topical applications for many centuries to help moisturize and nourish the skin, while improving the skin tone. The entire series of L’Occitane Angelica products is carefully formulated with all of these botanical ingredients, to allow the skin to achieve a lasting, radiant appearance.
L’Occitane is the name of the ancient province along the northwest Mediterranean shore, encompassing southern France. Angelica was chosen to reflect the genus name of the plant from which healing and soothing extracts and oils are derived. Together, the name L’Occitane Angelica is proudly used by the L’Occitane en Provence brand of fine skin care products for this series of wonderfully effective creams and lotions. Using a select array of carefully balanced botanical elements, these products help enrich, nourish and protect your skin.
