Terre d'Oc - Certified organic and Fair Trade cosmetics
Terre d'Oc is one of our favorite brands. And there are many reasons why we like them and I'm sure that after reading this article you will too.
Terre d'Oc is a French brand located in the heart of Provence made up of a team of 50 people. The values that characterize the brand are fair trade and certified organic ingredients .
What are your values
Fair trade because only in this way can we fight against monoculture and perpetuate family farming by combating child labor and inequality. They work with small producers, cooperatives and small plantations.
Organic because organic farming is not a whim, it is pure necessity. This is attested to by the fact that pesticides are present in most rivers and groundwater. These pesticides are suspected of being carcinogenic and/or neurotoxic.
It is not strange then that all the brand's products are certified by ECOCERT. (the most demanding organism of all) and formulated with ingredients such as Argan and Prickly Pear from Morocco or Shea Butter from Burkna Faso.
Terre d'Oc is committed to global ecological action, which translates into the following attitudes in its production processes:
- Make sustainable use of the planet's resources and true eco-design work
- Use reduced packaging from sustainable forests, printed with vegetable inks
- Factory certified by ISO14001, Application of the ISO 22716 European cosmetics standard
- Organic certifications: COSMEBIO in cosmetics and makeup and Organic farming of teas and infusions
- Fair and supportive trade in Southern countries. Through the Terre d'Oc respect letter and responsible labeling
- Financing aid projects for those most in need through solidarity products whose benefits are reverted to NGOs
- More than 97% of natural ingredients in cosmetics with proven efficacy in care products through in vitro dermatological tests (not on animals)
Main product lines

In the East, Argan oil is at the heart of all beauty secrets. The Argan tree, endemic to Morocco, produces the precious grains from which this fabulous oil is extracted. Exceptionally rich in antioxidants, tocopherols and Omega 6 , which protects, regenerates and nourishes the skin. Hand-extracted by Berber women in Tidzi, this oil comes from fair and sustainable trade .
An example of this range is the pure BIO Argan Oil and the BIO Massage Oil with Orange Blossom .
The Shea tree is considered sacred and has always been protected by African women. It is a wonderful ointment with many properties, it nourishes, repairs and protects dry and delicate skin .
