Korres is not a certified cruelty-free brand but their statement on their website has addressed some of the cruelty-free definition requirements. I also reached out to them for more information and I received the following responses from them by email. Based on their response, Korres is taking precautions to ensure suppliers are cruelty-free and are not allowing animal testing on their products when it’s required by law and is a cruelty-free company. The following list is all of their vegan options which they are labelling on their website and packaging. I’ve made it into a PDF version you can download and it’s linked at the bottom of this post. Korres Cruelty-Free Response:
1) Hello Nicole,
I forwarded the below inquiry to our Korres team and they have advised me the following. We have absolute accountability for every stage of our production since we source raw ingredients and extract them in-house by cold pressing them to raw vegan food standards. This is so we can ensure ingredient quality and freshness as well as ethical integrity including cruelty free. Please feel free to message us if you have any further questions/concerns.
2 ) Hello Nicole,
I can answer your second question. As far as ACI Brands is concerned, we are not the parent company of Korres. We are only a distributor and Korres is one of the brands we distribute. As for the first question, I will forward the request to Korres team and will advise you once I hear a response from them.
3) Hello Nicole,
Please see below for the response from Korres for the first question:
“KORRES launched in China this year, but we are able to distribute in China without animal testing. We are selling online only and via Hong Kong (cross-border) so therefore the animal testing policies are not applicable. We still maintain our policy as a cruelty-free brand.”
