I’m sure we’re no strangers to having flowers in our skincare products. The common ones include roses for moisturisation, chamomile for soothing properties and calendula for anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory uses. What about having peonies incorporated in your skincare essentials? It’s a first for me hearing that L’Occitane actually created an innovative line of perfecting skincare products with peony extract. Behold, the majestic L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime Range.
Known to be the flower with a thousand petals, certain varieties of this remarkable peony boast medicinal and ornamental properties. Sharing the same passion for the legendary queen of flowers, L’Occitane collaborates with Jean-Luc Riviere, whose family specialised in peonies for 160 years. Riviere has cultivated over 700 species of the peony flower at the heart of his garden in Drôme, France, displaying his immense love for the flower.
