In 1946, Sothys was a beauty institute in Paris, where a list of exclusive customers enjoyed fine French products created by Dr. Hotz, a medical biologist. In 1966, the Mas family acquired the Sothys Institute, already installed on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honore in Paris. Mr. Bernard Mas, Chairman, then decided to develop and expand the beautiful Sothys range and increase its availability.
Mr. Mas devoted himself to setting up distinctive export markets for Sothys products. From then on, Sothys became a family business with an international vocation.
Sothys then installed its main production, distribution and administrative facilities in Brive, towards the center of France. It is from here that Sothys' chemists, skin care specialists and marketing personnel worked to fullfill the life-long dream of the Mas family.
Of course, the products themselves are the stars in the Sothys constellation. From creation to roll-out, the focus is always on authentic proven results. It may look good, smell good and feel good, but if it does not "work", it will not be found in the Sothys line. It is this dedication to creating the best professional skin care products in the world that has lead to a loyal following by professional estheticians. After all, their business and reputation depends on offering their own clients immediate, discernible results. With Sothys, quality is entrusted in good hands. 
Today the SOTHYS  enjoys a profitable and large market share. The commercial dynamism of the company, along with an experienced and efficient team, make Sothys a bright star in the industry.
Today, through the leadership of Frederic Mas and the creative direction of Christian Mas , the Sothys brand is now paving a new road in the beauty market, and starting some new traditions on their own along the way.  The Mas brothers are committed to the legacy of Sothys which marries effective scientifically-proven products with the professional advice provided by a Sothys-trained esthetician.
Now, through shared goals and aspirations, Frederic and Christian Mas have not only brought Sothys to new level of international recognition, they have also carried the tradition of the brand beyond what their father, Bernard Mas, Chairman of Sothys International, envisioned and have truly proven Sothys’ staying power as a major player in the beauty industry.
