In 1946 Dr. Hotz formed an 'Exclusive, Innovative' approach to professional skincare, which placed the customer and their well-being at the centre of Sothys treatments at the 'L'Institut Sothys' on the Rue de Fabourg St Honore in the heart of Paris.
Taken over by the Mas family in 1966 they brought new Scientific advances and a concentration on salon exclusive availability to the forefront of the brand that has to this day ensured the Sothys have stayed true to the luxury professional skincare market.
Today we offer a complete range of Skincare, body rituals, sun-care and make-up, along with a range of organic products and a men's line to ensure our brand covers a wide range of treatments and skin concerns.

The Story of Sothys
Sothys was the name that the ancient Egyptians gave to the Brightest star in the sky; she was perceived by the inhabitants of the land of the Pharaohs as the jewel amongst jewels. Men were fascinated by her radiance and beauty.
During a heavenly night, Saturn met the young star Sothys. Even Venus never seemed so beautiful. Their meeting was astonishing and Saturn was overwhelmed with passion for her, this threw the regular rhythm of the stars into confusion.
Venus could not bear the fact she was no more the most beautiful star in the sky. She took her revenge and Sothys disappeared into the dark of the night. Saturn cried over forty days and forty nights and flooded the earth.
For many centuries, the world knew nothing of Sothys until...
She reappeared to deliver her secret to earth:
She dedicated herself to women in order to preserve their Beauty and happiness. As a tribute, men worshipped her as a goddess.
