Korres is a brand who I believe are extremely under the radar. They are a thoughtful, safe, effective brand who pride themselves on their potent ingredients and skincare technology. They focus on 4 areas:
Precious extracts - where they use cold extraction processes, recycle all forms of the plant, and utilitse precious botanicals native to Greece.
Advanced research - where they test the same way pharmaceuticals would test to ensure product safety and efficacy. They also ensure the product has natural ingredients.
Thoughtful formulas - including tests for dermatologists, opthomologists and excluding preservatives by using anti-microbial ingredients
Passion - whether it's for research, ingredients, environment and skin.
