Hello,

I was wondering if your cosmetics contained animal derived (including insects) ingredients. If so, do you have a list of those that you make that are vegetarian and/or vegan friendly. Thank you.

Sarah

Hi Sarah,

Thank you for your inquiry and interest in Korres. None of our products are tested on animals. All tests – including dermatological and clinical tests – are performed in vitro by the use of synthetic keratinocytes [in the lab] or in vivo [human volunteers under the surveillance of a dermatologist and/or special practitioners as required i.e. an ophthalmologist]. We never use animal derivatives but in some cases use their by-products such as in our products that contain honey, milk, yogurt, royal jelly, silk, bee wax, chitosan, and keratin.
