It was from this ecosystem that George Korres created the first homeopathic pharmacy in Athens in 1996, with his wife Léna, a chemical engineer. This then gave birth to the eponymous natural cosmetic care brand.

Korres works with plant hunters whose mission is to find the ideal region to grow each plant based on climate and soil fertility while protecting endangered species. It favors the use of cultivated plants or renewable parts of plants in order to select the active plant ingredients to integrate them into the formulas.
