A: L’Occitane sources its shea butter from the Burkina Faso region of Africa where local people have used it for centuries to soothe and repair dry skin brought on by the region’s harsh, arid climate. Here, L’Occitane leads a sustainable and socially responsible effort to train and support small, local cooperatives of women to harvest and market this precious oil.
A: CC Cream was adapted from BB Cream and is another multi-purpose, time-saving product. While BB Creams are targeted for younger women looking for a radiant glow, CC Creams, or color-correcting creams, have more pigment and are meant to hide uneven skin tone, redness and hyperpigmentation. CC Cream also provides the skin with sun protection, moisture and anti-aging benefits. So, pick up a CC Cream if you want heavier coverage or stronger anti-aging benefits than your BB Cream usually provides. Try Pur Minerals CC Cream, Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Repair CC Cream or Supergoop Daily Correct CC Cream.
A: Because BB Creams were first developed for Asian complexions, it took a while for companies to develop a broader range of shades.

Smashbox also has a wide variety of shades in their Camera Ready BB Cream line.
