In 1946, a man by the name Dr Hotz started Sothys with the development of a patented system that encapsulated the active ingredients of a cosmetic formulation in a glass vile in order to stabilise its effectiveness. He wanted to create a regenerative, stabilised serum that would help heel the depilating burns that left thousands in post war Europe with the burden of severe physical scarring.
The result of his breakthrough was so revolutionary and profound for these victims that he was inspired to continue to develop products that would help people with these devastating reminders from the war. We now know his creation today as the ‘Ampoule’ and it is this that saw the inception of Sothys.
The key difference with Sothys is that the products are formulated in such a way that the molecular structure of the main active ingredients is not compromised by other actives within the formulation.
This means that the actives are allowed to work unobstructed and completely stabilised so that there full potential is realised for the user.
Many products claim high levels of actives in their products, however the reality is that if the active ingredients are not ‘stabilised’ then the effectiveness of the ingredients in the product is essentially rendered useless. Similarly if a number of ingredients are combined into one formulation that are not cohesive it may render the product ineffective. It can therefore be said that formulation is just as important if not more so than the actual ingredients or percentage of actives themselves.
Sothys products and treatments are carefully formulated to ensure that the actives are delivered in a stabilised and effective way.
