Why Sothys is The Trusted French Spa Brand
SOTHYS has a 77 year history of professional skincare treatments. Dr Hotz a trained physicist and biologist was motivated to find a remedy to minimize the suffering of burn victims in the aftermath of World War II. In 1946, he invented the world’s first concentrated biologically-based serum stored in sealed ampoules. After formulating the first medicinal cream to heal burnt skin, Dr. Hotz then also began to dispense an original line of products alongside his medical practice. He catered to an elite Parisian clientele, operating from a tiny beauty institute at 163 rue du Faubourg St Honoré, in the heart of Paris’ golden triangle. In 1966, the Mas family, owners of the Asepta laboratories in Monaco, acquired the SOTHYS Institute. Handed down for generations from father to sons. Sothys still is today a family run business.
