About River Organics
Who we are
River Organics is an independent beauty company, located in Wilmington, North Carolina. Our products are made with organic plant oils and butters and produced in small batches.
Formulated to be safe for all skin types, our line of facial oils, body oils and lip balms offer a simplified approach to maintaining and nourishing your skin.
The products are conceived by wife and husband team Corinne & Fabien, natives of Canada and France. Corinne is an Art Historian with an eye for simple beauty and Fabien is a natural product chemist who worked in the Chanel skin care laboratories in the South of France, where they both lived for 8 years.
Life in France, and travels in Italy and the Middle East introduced Corinne to beauty regimens in which oil, not creams, formed the basis for moisturizing the skin.
Why Oil Based Skin Care?, The Benefits
Plant-based oils are incredibly gentle and easily absorbed while helping to regulate the skin.
All skin types can benefit from cleansing & hydrating with oils, especially oily skin types (counter-intuitive to some). When cleansing and hydrating with oils, the oil glands below the surface receive the message that there is enough oil, and so produce less. Hydrating with oils is the most gentle way to hydrate.
What does Organic Skin Care mean?
Our products are made with oils that are organic. In the same way vegetables and fruits are grown, the plants from which the oils are produced are grown organically without the use of pesticides or chemicals. If no chemicals are used, then no chemicals can seep into the final product.
We use recyclable glass amber bottles for our oils with as little extra packaging as possible. We offer refills on our body and facial oils with a 25% discount locally in Wilmington NC. Our lip balms and vegan makeup come in recyclable kraft paper tubes.
