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.

The Mythology. Sothys was the name the Ancient Egyptians gave to the brightest star in the sky; she symbolized to them eternal 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 not anymore the most beautiful star in the sky. She took her revenge and Sothys fell into the dark of the night and disappeared. Saturn cried over forty days and forty nights and flooded the Earth. During centuries, the world heard nothing about Sothys until the day when... Sothys reappeared to deliver her secret to the Earth: she dedicated herself to women in order to preserve their beauty and happiness. As a tribute, Men venerated her as a Goddess.
