River Soap Company

River Soap Company began in a kitchen in 1991. Since then they've outgrown their kitchen and have continued to expand to include 12 different soaps, all natural sea sponges and their very own complexion mitts. River Soap Company's large, long lasting 4.5 ounce triple French milled soaps are all vegetable base, biodegradable and cruelty free. Their soaps contain no perfumes nor artificial colorants. The subtle colors are derived from natural spices and botanicals. River Soap Company uses pure essential oil to scent their natural soaps and add sweet almond oil to every soap bar to make them extra moisturizing.

-Triple French milling their soaps makes them dense, long lasting (5 weeks or more) and neat- they won't leave a gooey mess in the soap dish. Sweet almond oil makes our soaps extra moisturizing but not greasy, it is light, colorless and scent free.
-Use only fragrances derived from pure essential oil, their unique combination of essential oil have made them famous in the industry.
-They use no artificial colorants in the soap, only botanicals & minerals; plant chlorophyll makes the mountain laurel soap a light green color and sea kelp powder makes the ocean mist soap green while acting as an exfoliator and adding trace minerals.
-River Soaps are made from a coco-palm soap base. Palm oil has been farmed and harvested according to standards established by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), which promotes planting and harvesting palm oil in a sustainable manner.
-All soaps are made in the U.S.A.

River Soaps aim is to provide high quality, vegetable based soaps and bath accessories without artificial colorants or fragrances, priced for everyday use. They strive to minimize impact on the planet therefore, bath products are simply wrapped. No fancy packaging. Just naturally beautiful soap.

The name River Soap Company was inspired by the Russian River in West Sonoma County California.Their parents bought a small cabin overlooking the river and under the redwood trees. In 1990, they spent a summer up at the Russian River making a lot of soap, and staying very clean!
