Of course 2017 had some ridiculously expensive products to offer but actually some of them are worth the money. The new Sothys Youth Serums, for instance.
As long as we can remember Sothys has been associated with exclusivity. In 1946, Sothys was a beauty institute in Paris, where a list of exclusive customers enjoyed fine French products created by Dr. Hotz, a medical biologist. Setting the standards of professional beauty care for more than 60 years, today Sothys is renowned for bringing advanced skin care and expertise to consumers worldwide. Scientists at Sothys in France collaborate with universities and research laboratories in order to develop products and professional treatments with formulas combining well-being and technology for a positive transformation effect on body and mind. Sothys continues to set the pace with innovative collections featuring cosmeceuticals, marine and botanical actives. Each product has proven to be an exceptional solution for a specific skin care need, delivering quality results such as one would find at a professional spa.
The brand new Youth Serums collection also meets that requirements and has been formulated to target and reduce visible signs of ageing. Interestingly enough, each of these youth serums were inspired by different popular aesthetic treatments. Procedures such as lasers, LEDs, hyaluronic injections, radiofrequency and mesotherapy have been investigated and the effects of the new Sothys serums are comparable to those obtained with these treatments. In other words every serum has a dermo-aesthetic action.
The collection includes six high-performance serums:
Sérum Jeunesse unifiant – Unifying Youth Serum (yellow)
Inspired by pigment lasers that use light and heat to reduce pigmentation, and LED (light emitting diode) which emits light with low levels of energy to tighten pores and restore skin radiance, this serum not only has a mattifying texture, it also helps to make skin irregularities less visible. Surface wrinkles feel smoother. Thanks to four molecules from the root of the vine, the skin becomes tangibly illuminated. Vectorised peptide, marine exopolysaccharides and the pore refiner system also ensure that your skin looks perfect. Light smell that makes us think of green vines.
Recommended retail price: € 92 (30 ml)
Sérum Jeunesse focus fermeté – Firming-specific Youth Serum (purple)
Inspired by radio frequency to stimulate production of skin collagen this gel texture with stretch effect helps prevent skin sagging and lifts the features. The skin feels more resilient, smoother and lifted. The elasticity of the skin is guaranteed by copper peptides. These ingredients help to rebuild collagen and elastin. Further, manioc, pullulan, NAG6P and ellagic acid are present in this serum with light, fresh smell of green fruits. Recommended retail price: € 92 (30 ml)
Sérum Jeunesse reconstituant – Reconstructive Youth Serum (bordeaux)
This serum with oil texture is inspired by mesotherapy injections which stimulate collagen production and boost hydration to intensely nourish the skin and make it appear plump and hydrated. The serum intensively nourishes the skin. That way it feels more vital and gets rid of all signs of aging. Many vitamins and omegas guarantee that your skin will not feel lethargic any longer. Apart from that extracts of crystal tears, microspheres of hyaluronic acid, evening primrose, argan oil and oil of sea fennel also make rejuvenation palpable. Green smell.
Recommended retail price: € 92 (30 ml)
Sérum Jeunesse détoxifiant – Detoxifying Anti-Free Radical Youth Serum (green)

In addition, extracts of the prickly pear and dandelion enhance this effect and determine the smell of this serum. Recommended retail price: € 92 (30 ml)
Sérum Jeunesse focus rides – Wrinkle-specific Youth Serum (blue)
This serum inspired by hyaluronic acid injections to fill up existing wrinkles, soften fine lines and smooth the skin surface has a light melting texture to help fill existing wrinkles, smooth the skin surface and reduce the signs of aging.

Furthermore, di- and tripeptides of rice are present, as well as a vegetable product analogous to hyaluronic acid. Light floral scent. Recommended retail price: € 92 (30 ml)
Sérum Jeunesse oval parfait – Perfect Shape Youth Serum (orange)
Inspired by lifting threads that are implanted under the skin, and ultrasound which uses sound energy to remove facial fats, to reshape, redefine and protect facial contours for a more oval face shape, this serum redraws the facial oval, preserves the contours and smoothens the décolleté. The result is a visibly lifted face. Ingredients: M3.0 peptides are also included to obtain that lifting effect, as well as manioc sugar. Marine oligosaccharides and extracts of pomeranian blossom and ivy also enhance this effect. The latter determine the smell of this serum that is somewhat stronger than the other serums. Recommended retail price: € 90 (30 ml)
1 + 1 = 3
Thanks to Sothys’ new range of Sérums Jeunesse, you are able to tackle all signs of skin aging. The range is based on the principle ‘Fil de Vie’ (Lifeline) and refils the skin with energy. The six serums each respond to the needs that your skin has at that moment. The texture of the highly concentrated formulas has been developed in such a way that the penetration of the active ingredients is reinforced and that the application of different products is possible one after another the so-called layering. Sothys therefore recommends that the serums should always be used in combination with a cream, so you get a multiple, supplementary effect because … 1 + 1 = 3!
Serums are made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into the skin and deliver a very high concentration of the active ingredients. This makes them a great tool for targeting specific skincare concerns.
