Hydrating beauty

Who They Are

Makeup that acts like skincare. Founded by husband and wife duo, Corinne and Fabien, River Organics exists on the principle that nourishing your skin and looking great doing so should be simple. One should not have to sacrifice the fun effects of makeup for healthy skin or vice versus! Corinne pulls ideas from a background in art history while Fabien brings 8 years of experience working as a natural product chemist for Chanel laboratories.

Inspired by their time in France, Corinne and Fabien also traveled throughout Italy and the Middle East, where they were introduced to beauty regimens in which oils, not creams, formed the basis of skincare routines. Today, River Organics uses plant oils as the base of each product which means each makeup application softens, hydrates, and nourishes the skin. Located in Wilmington, North Carolina, each River Organics product is hand-poured and thoughtfully created. Natural, simple, clean!

Why We Like Them

Did you know that most skincare and makeup products are mostly water and therefore contain tons of preservatives and chemicals to make them last longer? Unlike conventional beauty routines, River Organics formulates their “makeup as skincare” essentials with plant oils as the primary ingredients – not water or cream. They know that the foundation of any makeup look is healthy skin, so their products hydrate, nourish, and naturally beautify the skin (without harsh chemicals, toxins, or filler ingredients)!

Inspired by skincare routines in the Middle East and France, and produced in Wilmington, North Carolina, River Organics uses organic and natural ingredients that come from the Earth, not factories. Plus, they’re 100% vegan, Cruelty-Free Certified, and use sustainably sourced ingredients that your skin will love. 

When it comes to packaging, they do things a little differently. Instead of single-use plastic packaging, they opt for compostable and biodegradable paper packaging. They ship in recycled envelopes and don’t add wasteful marketing materials or packaging that usually head straight to the bin. Glow naturally with skincare infused makeup from River Organics!

Cruelty Free is a certification process through PETA that labels products that are not tested on animals. All companies that are included on PETA’s cruelty-free list have signed a statement verifying that they don’t use ingredients or create finished products that help conduct or pay for any tests on animals.

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.
