Korres has long since been equated with quality skincare that is nurtured by science and powered by nature. Having a homeopathic background in its foundations, they research the most powerful natural ingredients then contact the farms in Greece to get the raw materials planted, harvested and produced into the finest quality products. In doing so, they are giving back to the communities in Greece by supporting villages and families, sustainable practices and organic farming.
All of their products go through 500 clinical and consumer tests, before being released to market.
At the end of last year they launched the GOLDEN KROCUS range, with organic saffron as its core ingredient. This is harvested from the lush Krocus flowers which bloom only once per year in the Greek town of Kosani, and produce the highest quality organic saffron. The range is currently comprised of 2 products, the Ageless Saffron Elixir, a gorgeously enriched serum and the Golden Krocus Hydra-filler Plumping Cream, a instantly brightening moisturiser. Crocin (this Organic Greek Saffron) is the Kozani saffron, which is the rarest (more expensive than gold per pound) saffron in the world. Harvested only 2 weeks per year, this precious ingredient is responsible for total skin health targeting collagen, elastin, pigmentation and skin texture. The other main ingredients in the range an Amino Acid Copper Complex, which boosts collagen and elastin synthesis at it’s source, and Low Molecular Weight Hyaluronic Acid, derived from cruelty free bio-technology to ensure purity, this low weight molecule binds up to 1000x its weight in water to each skin cell. Together they work to effectively deliver anti-wrinkle and skin smoothing results in just 14 days. Also, the range is gorgeously scented and both products are easily absorbed.
