Have you ever wondered why Ancient Greece was so full of god(desse)s? Well, we know why. The secret lies in the Greek flora, and now it’s available to us all – thanks to Korres. This inspiring Greek brand offers a complete range of innovative and wonderfully scented unisex products, including skincare, face and body products. All of which are natural, organically certified, and based on extracts from Greek plants and herbs.
INSPIRED BY GREEK GOD(DESSE)S!
George Korres has been experimenting with the ancient recipes of Athens' oldest Homeopathic Pharmacy since 1989. His goal? Divinely soft skin for everyone, be they male or female. First introduced in the 18th century, Homeopathy is based on the treatment of ailments with herbal remedies that strengthen the human organism by stimulating its defence system. Since there are more than 6,000 different plant species in Greece – 1,200 of which are indigenous – it will come as no surprise that the Greeks were avid experimenters when it came to homeopathy.
Korres fell under the spell of this ancient wisdom and in 1989 developed his first product: an aromatic syrup with honey and aniseed, the recipe for which was inspired by ‘rakomelo’, a warming spirit-with-honey concoction he used to make in his hometown on the island of Naxos.
Korres has managed to build his empire quickly, thanks to his Greek drachmetekens (the good old days) mindset, as well as his recognition of the importance of a sustainable business. He has created a network of farmers who cultivate the plants and herbs for him, and he collaborates with researchers at universities to develop efficient extraction methods for all his clinically tested formulas.
PASSION, RESPECT AND POETRY WRAPPED IN PURE NATURAL PRODUCTS
Korres now consists of a complete range of innovative and wonderfully scented unisex products, including skincare, face and body products. All of which are based on extracts from Greek plants and herbs. Korres still stays true to homeopathy’s core values, and only produces top quality, natural, organically certified products that consist of 80% to 98.8% natural ingredients. Any synthetic cosmetic ingredients arereplaced by natural ones whenever possible.
A convenient table showing the ‘Formula Facts’ – an ingredients list of what is (and isn’t) in the product – can be found on each and every label. Each product has been created with a great love for nature; the packaging is recyclable, and the products are both skin- and environmentally friendly. Furthermore, all the ingredients are tested for their clinical efficacy, and, of course, not tested on animals.
The wonderful Korres product range is almost completely available at COSMANIA, so easy!
