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

Greek grandmothers (yia yias) have nourished sunburnt skin with Greek yoghurt for centuries. This inspired us to create the first after-sun skincare product made with edible Greek yoghurt. The Greek Yoghurt Calming + Cooling Gel made to soothe and moisturize dehydrated skin, quickly became an instant international hit.

Honors from around the globe

KORRES is recognized as the World’s Most Innovative Brand by International Cosmetic News, while later in 2010 the European Union grants KORRES funding for a global research study of over 3,600 natural extracts for their antioxidant, anti-aging and sun protection properties.

2009

Greece’s first herbal extraction unit

The brand completes a mapping of Greek flora, fulfilling its long-term vision of exploring and promoting the beneficial activity of the country’s unique, native plants.
