We’re trying to tread a little more lightly on our planet, which makes refillable items an excellent option for us all.
From Fenty Beauty’s new Fenty Icon Lipstick to Christian Louboutin Beauty’s first-ever refillable makeup palette, these thoughtful items save massively on packaging as well as the transportation of finished products.
This is why we’re especially thrilled when French beauty brand L’OCCITANE installed a Refill Fountain in their ION Orchard store!
L’OCCITANE Refill Fountain
A zero-plastic alternative, the Refill Fountain lets you enjoy your favourite L’OCCITANE shower products, sans new plastic bottles. We think that’s pretty neat.
The brand is kicking off with a selection of five shower products, but keep your eyes peeled – because more products will be added to their lineup in the future too.
Simply visit the Refill Fountain store at ION Orchard #B2-39 to refill!
How to use the Refill Fountain

You can bring your own L’OCCITANE bottle (which will be inspected for suitability by the store’s Beauty Advisors) or purchase an aluminium forever bottle at the store.
Since L’OCCITANE’s forever bottle is made of aluminium, it is significantly stronger and will last a much longer time sitting in the shower. The forever bottle is also recyclable, which makes them an eco-friendly option.
The brand’s plastic bottles, on the other hand, are made with recycled plastic. They are recommended to be refilled up to three times before you’ll have to recycle them.
This is why the brand suggests investing in a forever bottle once to ensure you’re getting the best strength, safety, and quality of the bottle as well as the product in it, which will help you use less plastic in the long run.
Products you can get a refill on at the store
1. L’OCCITANE Almond Shower Oil
If you’re a fan of the brand, then this product needs no introduction. The Almond Shower Oil is a bestselling body cleanser that transforms from a luxurious oil to softening milk that hydrates as it cleanses your skin, leaving it soft and lightly fragranced.
2. L’OCCITANE Intensive Repair Shampoo
This nourishing shampoo is formulated with black oat amino acids and five essentials oils to smooth and repair damaged strands for softer, healthier tresses.
3. L’OCCITANE Intensive Repair Conditioner
Formulated without silicones, this conditioner detangles and repairs brittle, damaged hair for smoother and stronger tresses. Infused with five essential oils, it’ll leave your hair smelling fresh all day.
4. L’OCCITANE Shea Verbena Liquid Soap
Formulated with an ultra-gentle foaming base, this liquid soap mildly cleanses the hands and body. It’s enriched with comforting shea butter, which leaves your skin soft and lightly scented with refreshing verbena.
5. L’OCCITANE Verbena Shower Gel
Just like the Shea Verbena Liquid Soap, this shower gel gently cleanses your skin and leaves it delicately fragranced with citrusy verbena from Provence.
