How it all began

It all started at a pharmacy

Giorgos Korres, just eight years old, starts playing with ingredients behind his mother’s pharmacy counter.

1988

A pharmacy student

While studying, Giorgos starts working at Greece’s oldest homeopathic pharmacy, while studying at the Pharmacy School of the University of Athens. He took over the pharmacy in 1992 and within the next five years set up a homeopathic remedy production lab. During this time, Giorgos developed a deep understanding of natural ingredients and their application in over 3,000 herbal remedies.

The journey begins

While on holiday in Crete, an American buyer spots KORRES products in a local pharmacy. KORRES officially goes international.

Yia Yia’s remedy

KORRES incorporates Greek edible yogurt into a skincare formula for the first time. Based on the folk knowledge about the nourishment of sunburnt and dehydrated skin with edible yoghurt, our nourishing Greek Yoghurt Calming + Cooling Gel quickly becomes an instant international hit. Our yia yia's (grandmothers) are honored.
