What natural products do we use?
In each of our innovations, we pursue the idea of responsible beauty that respects the skin and the environment.
All our formulas comply with the standards of the EU Cosmetics Regulation and even go beyond them in accordance with the strictest international regulations.
We are committed to using as many natural ingredients as possible in our new formulas.
We combine them with certain synthetic ingredients that are rigorously selected by toxicologist pharmacists, as they are also key to ensuring that all our products conform to our 4 founding principles: safety, sensoriality, efficiency and naturalness.
How do we ensure that our formulas are well tolerated by the skin?
Before being placed on the market, all our formulas undergo numerous tests, including a cell culture evaluation, clinical tests under the supervision of dermatologists, and a safety assessment performed by an external independent toxicologist.
What ingredients do we prohibit?
We created our own list of banned ingredients. Over 500 ingredients are therefore banned from all SOTHYS formulas. Some examples:
Our rigorous formulation.
Ethical and environmental considerations in relation to the raw materials used:
Are our products vegan?
Yes, Sothys products can be used by vegans. The brand’s internal development charter prohibits the use of animal-origin products. In our entire product offering, only two raw materials of animal origin are used:
There are now only 10 non-vegan Sothys formulas!
Do we test on animals?
No. In Europe, animal testing is banned by cosmetics regulations.
Which ingredients are we looking to replace with alternatives in our future formulas?
“Preserve the nature. In particular, Sothys invests 1% of its revenue into protecting nature through Les Jardins Sothys® and by sustainably managing its 4-hectare site within a 26-hectare protected forest reserve.”
