A historic family business focused on excellence

​Unlimited possibilities for a family run business.

​Since 1946, passed down from father to son, the passion of the Mas family has developed and honored the Sothys brand. Currently, the company is supervised by two brothers, Christian and Frederic.

2 key places that played a historic role in the development of the brand. The Mas family comes from the Corrèze region in southwestern France, where units are still located to this day science and research, production, administrative department and Les Jardins Sothys ™ (Sothys ecological gardens).

Paris is home to an international training center and the exclusive, flagship Sothys Institute under the prestigious address 128 Faubourg Saint Honoré.

A brand that remains exclusively professional for over 75 years.

Sothys, one of the original brands dedicated to beauty institutes and spas, was established in 1946, during the new wave of French beauty.

It was then that the first recipes were created by Dr. Hotz, a visionary of beauty treatments and an avid Egyptologist. The Sothys brand owes its name to the brightest star in the sky, derived from the legends of the pharaohs.


Currently, the brand is recognized globally, in over 120 countries and available in 20,000 beauty salons. It is distinguished exclusively by a professional approach, practiced by cosmetologists, perfectly trained in the brand's treatments and techniques.

As a strong symbol that expresses the respect the brand has for nature, Les Jardins Sothys ™  in Auriac (Corrèze) are a source of constant inspiration and bear witness to the brand’s involvement in sustainable development.

Les Jardins Sothys ™  is an exquisite Botanic garden that opened in 2007.  It was awarded the Jardin Remarquable label, and boosts a fine dining restaurant and a Boutique. This exceptional place now attracts over 12,000  visitors every year!
