La Fare is above all the name of a small hill in Haute-Provence, nestled between Forcalquier and Pierrerue, between a fiery Mediterranean climate and a rough mountain climate. It is also the name of Mas Provençal where cosmetics of the same name are made, and which was built over two centuries ago, in 1789, the year of the French Revolution.
It is in an ethical, natural and organic approach that Laurent and Ketty Baussan (Laurent is the son of Olivier Baussan, founder of the L’Occitane en Provence brand) created La Fare 1789 in 2012.
La Fare 1789 reflects what Haute-Provence has to offer in all its splendor.
The recyclable packaging is a reflection of this authenticity, the jar being an old inkwell and the bottle an antique, these 2 objects having been found in the cellar of the Provencal farmhouse.
A simplicity that wants to be transparent and honest. Moreover, the products are made with three times more organic ingredients than the standard requested by Ecocert, because what is really important for La Fare 1789 is respect for the body and for nature, one not can go without the other.
Yannis and his wife took over the company in 2018 and are working in this direction.
