1. Soil Lab
The Balkan Botanic Garden of Kroussia is host to 6,500 plant species, featuring a number of native, rare Greek plants.
Wild Rose -a KORRES signature ingredient- was the starting point of our cooperation.

The Garden is surrounded by a great amount of mesmerizing Wild Rose bushes.
Wild Rose blooms in the surroundings of this beautiful Garden in northern Greece, ready to be harvested in autumn. The fruit is dried naturally to raw material ready to be extracted to a precious beauty oil.
2. Extraction Lab
KORRES Wild Rose Oil is an enriched natural, virgin oil deriving from the seeds and the pericarp, abundant in beneficial compounds like oleic, linoleic, linolenic fatty acids, sterols, tocopherols and carotenoids.
The Wild Rose dried fruits are stored in stable humidity and temperature conditions, while undergoing strict controls to ensure specific quality parameters, such as absence of pests and plant diseases.
