After research, Korres identifies natural active ingredients that are skin and environmentally friendly, in order to make products with as high of a natural content as possible while still being effective and safe.
The ingredients come from:
– Medicinal Herbs: Ingredients inherited from our pharmacy days
– Greek Flora: Greece has bountiful endemic flora that has evolved to grow in Greece’s unique environment
– Food: Beneficial ingredients with advanced skincare properties
– Natural Actives: Extracts found with proven efficacy through research carried out by the KORRES Research & Development Lab

We are strictly against animal testing, and do not test any ingredients or products on animals, nor do we hire outside companies to do so for us at any stage in production. All our tests are performed in the lab either in vitro (using synthetic skin cells) or on human volunteers under the surveillance of a dermatologist or specialty doctor, i.e. an ophthalmologist.
We do not sell to any countries that require animal testing, and we follow the European Union’s strict legislation that bans animal testing on finished cosmetic products and their ingredients.
