Very few ingredients hydrate and nourish like shea butter. You'll find it in skin, body care and hair care as a star ingredient. One of the brands that is renowned for its shea butter products is French skincare specialist L'Occitane. This year the brand introduces the Melting Honey collection that combines shea butter with honey, adding a delectable twist to the product's scent. And it's not just any honey the brand is throwing in the mix, but liquid gold extracted from the hives of Monsieur Molle's private honey cooperative in the Rhône region of France. The collection includes exfoliating sugars, a hand cream and a body cream.
