The Secrets de Sothys prestige line offers an anti-aging program for face and body. Secrets de Sothys Soin Excellence brings a multi-sensorial approach to professional skin care: rare textures, a unique atmosphere, relaxing music and a signature perfume. The line includes smoothing body balm, global anti-age de-stressing cream and serum, intense lip cream, eye contour serum and eau de parfum. Secrets de Sothys includes both a retail range and a range used only in the treatment room.

Sothys’ clinical brand, Simone Mahler, offers a high-tech approach that includes diagnosis, and is the only Sothys line to include machinery and equipment in its treatments. It is positioned to customers who are concerned with efficacy and performance. Founded more than 60 years ago by Simone Mahler, it has been part of Sothys for seven years. There are 60 Simone Mahler salons today in15 countries outside of France including China. According to Christian Mas, body care, including slimming treatments, is a growing area for the line.

The Bernard Cassiere line launched with a hemp hydrating care line, which has become its best selling line. From there, the brand has worked to stand out from traditional beauty salon offerings. In 2003, it was ahead of the curve when it launched its cocoa care line made from edible chocolate. Just last year, the brand was awarded the H. Pierantoni 2007 Innovation award for its Honey Oxygenating care during the 37th International Congress of Applied Aesthetics in Paris. This annual award is named for Humbert Pierantoni, creator and founder of the Congress as well as the journal Les Nouvelles Esthétiques.

A Walk in the Garden
After a splendid meal and a walk in the garden that was beautiful even late in the year, and that promises a spectacular future, Mas senior playfully demonstrated the operation of flock of fanciful handcrafted fountains to a pair of delighted visitors. It was a fitting conclusion to a memorable visit: for the visitors, as for Bernard Mas, after all the hard work comes time to play.
