Prickly juniper, called “Cade,” grows in the dry Provençal hillsides. Based on Cade's protective properties, L'OCCITANE has created expert formulas specifically for men's skincare and shaving needs.
Provence native Michaël Comte helps to protect the lush Ardèche forests and its cade trees by brush clearing – a process which rids the land of fire-spreading smaller vegetation. Instead of selling the brush he collects as firewood, he decided to harness the wood’s precious properties, leading him to provide cade to one of L’Occitane’s distillers.
Learn all about how Michaël became enamoured with this wild and wonderful plant and how he sources the perfect organic ingredients for our cade collection, while protecting the region’s biodiversity.
