Details on L'Occitane Sustainable Packagings

L'Occitane Eco-Refill packagings use up to 90% less materials than the original containers.

With this recycling program, L'Occitane Malaysia makes it very easy for everyone to play their roles in reducing waste because;

1) iCycle recycles all L'Occitane packagings.
2) L'Occitane accept packagings of any beauty brands.
3) L'Occitane have 15 drop-off locations nationwide.

How it works?

1) Everyone can bring their finished plastic, glass, or aluminium containers (from any beauty brands, not limited to only L'Occitane products) in clean and dry conditions to the 15 selected L'Occitane stores.

Notes: L'Occitane accept empties of any brands from the categories of Toiletries, Face Care, Hair Care, Body Care, and Fragrance products in the condition of DRY and CLEAN. They do not accept empties from the categories of Makeup, Hair Styling, and Mouth Care products.

2) Upon dropping off the items into the recycle bins, all collected recyclables will be tracked, picked-up, and managed by iCycle Malaysia.

3) Items will then be segregated into different categories of recyclable waste and sent to respective recycling factories to be weighed, washed, and repurposed into new items. For examples, plastic bottles can be recycled into raw materials of plastic pallets such as PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate), HDPE (High-Density Polyethylene), PP (Polypropylene), and so much more which later can be made into usable items such as shoes, polyester, etc.
