Active Organic Substances Found in the Sothys
Beauty Garden® Range
Each Beauty Garden® product contains Sothys’ exclusive Vegetal Moisturizing Activator™ (VMA™), which is a moisturizing complex derived from three plants (cherry trees, angelica and hawthorn) and combined with glycerin obtained from plants. VMA™ reinforces the barrier function of the skin by maintaining hydration of the stratum corneum and protecting the epidermis from outside aggressions. The barrier then protects the skin from environment and aging effects with a scientifically proven hydrating layer – tests performed by Sothys in conjunction with the University of Limoges found the VMA™ increased hydration of the skin by 34%.
Organic Extract of Cherry Buds

In addition, the composition of the extract of cherry buds is recognized for its hydrating properties, which makes it ideal for moisturizing, regenerating and energizing the skin.

Hawthorn is a shrub that blossoms in the spring. Hawthorn flowers are white and highly aromatic, which is the source of the organic extract. Hawthorn floral water alleviates stress and provides antioxidant, anti-age and venotonic properties.
Organic Extract of Angelica
