Looking to invest in skincare that’s kind to both your skin and the planet? We sat down with the experts from KORRES who shared the story behind their revolutionary Greek skincare brand.
How did KORRES originate?
KORRES is a Greek beauty brand, born out of Athens’ oldest homoeopathic pharmacy in 1996. Following its conscience since the 90s, KORRES proudly owns the process from seed to skin and back through six distinctive Labs, reflecting the brand’s Sustainability Circle vision: Soil Lab, Extraction Lab, Molecular Lab, Formulation Lab, Design Lab, Recycle Lab.
From the soil and seeds, the extraction process, the primary and biological research to the formulation based on hundreds of efficacy + safety tests, the design and back to recycling and the re-use of all the components.

Where are your ingredients sourced from?
Our approach to clean skincare is multi-faceted, sustainable, and rooted in our heritage. Our unique method of gathering ingredients goes beyond farming. We harvest plants and flowers that have grown in the wilds of Greece for thousands of years. We carefully transport each seed, fruit, and bloom from the farm to our lab to your skin.
By harvesting the most potent Greek botanicals and harnessing their power with cutting-edge technologies, we unlock clean, natural formulas that have transformational skin benefits meeting the diverse needs of the client through all (st)ages of life.
Greek Yoghurt is a key ingredient in your products, what are the skincare benefits?
Greek Yoghurt is known as a secret skin care remedy used by our grandmothers.
Rich in probiotics thanks to its unique straining process followed in small farms around Greece, this Mediterranean superfood is packed with all the nutrients your skin is craving. The Greek Yoghurt has multiple benefits:
- Balanced the skin microbiome: Soothe inflamed and irritated skin.
- Maintains the skin barrier, to protect the skin against stress factors and pollution.
