“It’s not about being perfect! And we don’t know any vegans who walk around saying that they are, or that they cause zero harm. Veganism doesn’t mean causing ZERO harm (that would be delusional)... but it definitely means causing a lot less of it!! And causing LESS harm than before (before being vegan) is definitely worth celebrating and continuing to advocate for.

Don’t let the vegan haters get you down. Usually the people pointing their fingers and trying to find a flaw in veganism are the ones who simply don’t understand it or don’t know what it takes to stand for something.” (Words by @vegan_boss, 📸 via @unmeatfuture)

Is KORRES Cruelty-Free? | KORRES Vegan Product List (2019)

This post may contain affiliate links.

Korres is a modern Greek apothecary brand specializing in natural skin, bath & body, and color cosmetics but is Korres cruelty-free?

Is KORRES Cruelty-Free?

KORRES is cruelty-free; none of KORRES’ products or ingredients are tested on animals, anywhere in the world.

KORRES’ Animal Testing Statement

Let’s start by asking what is Korres’ animal testing policy? Below is the response I receive after inquiring about their stance on animal testing:

We are strictly against animal testing, and do not test any ingredients or products on animals, nor do we hire outside companies to do so for us at any stage in production. All our tests are performed in the lab either in vitro (using synthetic skin cells) or on human volunteers under the surveillance of a dermatologist or specialty doctor, i.e. an ophthalmologist. We do not sell to any countries that require animal testing, and we follow the European Union’s strict legislation that bans animal testing on finished cosmetic products and their ingredients.

Based on KORRES’ response, we are happy to add KORRES to our list of cruelty-free brands!

Is KORRES Vegan?

Not all of KORRES products are vegan as some contain animal-derived ingredients or by-products, however, KORRES does offer some vegan products.

    I think Korea has decided to expand into Mainland China and thus does

    Can you reach out to them to confirm?

      That’s great to hear!

      The non-vegan list was provided by Korres.

      Maybe they recently changed their formulas to be vegan. I’m unable to view the specific products’ ingredients since they’re not available in Canada but I just added a note in this post of possible formula changes! Thanks for letting me know, Eva! =)

        They are NOT VEGAN at all. It says that the products are either vegan friendly or vegetarian friendly. But if you look into the ingredients it contains glycerin, glycol, glyceryl oleate, and some more. Those are 100 % from animals, and they clearly say there are no animal-by products in their products when on the ingredients list right next to it you have a mass of animal products in their products. Really ironic.

        Glycerin and glycol comes from animal fat or boiled animal fat, unless it is said that it was extracted from plant oil. Which moreover is never the case when it comes to glycerin and glycol. Its sad that they are lyving. If the products I just mentioned and more that I have not had the time to check are not infact taken from animals and plant oils, it should have been said so. Since if the name purely have stated “glycerin” or “glycol” it is from animals.

          Hi Michelle,
          Hmm.. let me look into this some more! That would be so disappointing if that was the case. I’ll ask about the source of the glycerin that they use. Sadly, since there’s no legal definition for the term “vegan”… companies can label their products “vegan” to mean whatever they want it to mean! =(

          I’ll update this post and let you know when I hear back from them.

          Wrong! Nowadays, glycerine is mostly plant-extracted, due to cost and skin tollerance, and the law does not force a producer to label glycerine as plant- derived on label; it is a choice of the producer how to list it, therefore! Smartest and easiest is to write directly to the producer and ask, they do not take the legal risk of lying in an official statement, which applied as speaking as a professional on behalf of a company.;)
