Research projects

Following on from the introduction of Quercetin & Oak, the first natural line to outpace top-selling conventional antiageing creams, based on a NOBEL awarded discovery and the findings of primary research on Proteasome & Ageing, KORRES achieves another first  with new principal research.


A research proposal on the study of 3,600 natural actives, submitted by KORRES in collaboration with eight [8] research centres, has achieved the highest mark [14.5/15] by the European Community as part of the Seventh Framework EU Programme for Research, Technological Development and Demonstration Activities.


The primary research proposal, one of 11 in total submitted by 106 participants, achieved the highest score after a 12-month assessment. KORRES in collaboration with eight [8] research centres will be studying the cosmetic properties of 3,600 natural actives, focusing on their antiageing, antioxidant, sun-protecting action  [antiageing, anti-hyper-pigmentation & UV-protection].


The research will discover and carry to the stage of development candidates, plant derived small molecules with potential as new cosmetic agents. These compounds will derive from plants originating from major   biodiversity hotspots in Europe, Africa, Latin America, and the Asia-Pacific region.

THE RESEARCH
AT A GLANCE

A four year research project (April 2010 – March 2014)

500 natural compounds screened (Bio prospecting)

A shortlist of the most efficacious /3,600 extracts generated
out of the most efficacious compounds (Chemodiversity)

All 3,600 extracts screened / UV-protection, anti-aging,
anti-hyper-pigmentation (Bio evaluation)

Evaluation of the findings (Bio automatics)

Selecting the top 30 out of the 3,600 extracts / further selection
of the top 5 which could be applied commercially
(Development – Advanced Testing – Feasibility Study)
