L’Occitane au Brésil taps into the face care category with new Umbu line

For the creation of its first face care line L’Occitane au Brésil has selected Umbu, also known as Brazil plum, a fruit rich in vitamins and minerals. The Franco-Brazilian brand of the L’Occitane Group found in Umbu, a typical fruit of the Brazilian Caatinga, the white forest of northeastern Brazil, the inspiration for the formulation of moisturizing and vitalizing skin care products.
