Korres, set up in 1996, is a Greek skincare brand with roots in Athens’ first ever Homeopathic Pharmacy. Based on its pharmacy experience in over 3,000 homeopathic remedies of herbal origin, Korres is focusing on primary and applied research regarding natural ingredients and formulae. The company today offers a natural and certified organic skin & hair care range, a make-up line as well as suncare products and herbal preparations.
It is often believed that natural cosmetics rely mainly on traditional recipes instead of clinical research. Our philosophy is to develop products based on primary and applied research on verified benefits and clinical efficacy.
We develop products based on two fundamental axes; our primary and applied research findings, and our values, our ongoing commitment:
to stress the benefits of Greek herbs; to develop skin and environmentally friendly formulas with a natural content varying between 80-99,80% ; to avoid the use of chemical substances like mineral oils, silicones, parabens and propylene glycol amongst others. These substances are replaced with natural ingredients.
We extract and isolate the active ingredients of our selected plants, at our own environmentally friendly, certified herb extraction unit, the outcome of an over five year-long effort. This, first in Greece, unit was created with the Pharmacy School of the University of Athens based on our homeopathy pharmacy heritage, our deep understanding of herbs, their properties and clinical benefits and innovative extraction methods. It enables us to extract and gently isolate active ingredients in order to produce premium quality, clinically effective organic extracts.
