The skin-care products and fragrances producer has not used synthetic musks xylene and ketone in its perfumes since 2001. L'Occitane has a charter to limit the use of the phthalate DEP and musks, and its ranges Immortelle and Miel do not contain these substances. Its new perfumes will be free of DEP and musks, and these will also be eliminated from existing ranges. PVC and alkylphenols are not used. The manufacturer has also removed preservatives that are susceptible to the release of formaldehyde.
