No. 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.

Is it safe to use KORRES products while I am pregnant / breastfeeding?
We advise all pregnant / breast-feeding women to consult their doctor before the use of any product. The detailed ingredient list will help the doctor decide whether a product can be used or not. All our products are developed based on natural and / or organic ingredients, with safety and efficacy being top priorities. We do apply an extended negative-list when developing our products (i.e. we avoid the use of chemical substances like mineral oils, silicones, parabens and propylene glycol amongst others, known as potent irritants, which are replaced with natural ingredients) and we only use specific, EU approved and absolutely safe, synthetic ingredients, when safety or efficacy issues emerge. Moreover, our products pass all necessary patch / safety & efficacy tests that demonstrate their safety during consumer use; still, it is recommended to consult your doctor before start using a product.
