Here are some speed round fun facts about some of the hottest products and collections from Korres.

korres skincare golden crocus
Golden Crocus

  • ‘Golden Crocus’ is named after ‘Krokos’, which is a small town in Greece, just south of Kozani, where they grow ‘Krokos Kozani’ (Saffron).
  • There is a 14-day natural harvest where the flower is hand-picked by families.  The discarded parts are put back into the earth, so there is zero waste.
  • This anti-aging elixir plumps, hydrates, treats fine lines, and can boost your existing skincare routine (Look at it like a conductor who keeps the orchestra in sync).
