We have been caring for our skin for longer than even our grandmothers can remember. In the 16th and 17th centuries “cures” for freckles and miracle face creams flooded the marker, while toners were made from oil of bay, rhubarb, spices, and wine and were sold by travelling salesmen. It was the 20th century that saw a shift when it became the golden era for face cosmetics as mass production made cosmetics available to all women, of every class.
Sothys has seen it all, which is no surprise seeing as they have been on the quest for perfection and beauty for women and men for over 70 years. In 1960 they pioneered ampoules, essential skincare supercharged serums that have higher concentrations of active ingredients that you should use for a finite amount of time as a boost – particularly if you are having a skin nightmare.
With the rise in K-Beauty and consequently ampoules Sothys has gone back to the essentials with their mini beauty courses of treatment that are ideal for all women. They have created 4 ampoules for every skin type and skin concern.
