Discover KORRES: Beautifully Natural Skincare From Greece
Inspired by the warmth and soul of its homeland in Greece, KORRES was created by innovative pharmacist, Giorgos Korres, and his co-founder, Lena. Harnessing the power of beautifully natural ingredients, KORRES brings natural skincare inspired by homeopathic remedies.
Giorgos Korres started working at Greece's oldest herbal-homeopathic pharmacy back while he was studying at the Pharmacy School of the University of Athens. By 1992, he had taken over the pharmacy and began his exploration into homeopathic remedies.
Inspired By Homeopathic Remedies
Creating a unique lab specially to produce homeopathic remedies, Giorgos developed a deep understanding of natural ingredients and their application in over 3,000 herbal remedies.
News soon spread, and before long, people from all over Athens, and later, from all over Greece, were coming to the pharmacy for the herbal remedies. It was this experience that led to the foundation of KORRES Natural Products in 1996. Giorgos said he had the clear purpose to produce safe and clinically effective natural skincare products that he would be proud to offer to his friends - to the people he loves.
Supporting Local Farmers
By working with local farmers and establishing a network of micro-farmers and agricultural cooperatives, KORRES helps to generate an income for over 10,000 people in total.
Greece hosts one of the richest floras per square meter and has over 6,000 plant species - an incredible 1,200 of these are not found to be anywhere else in the world.
