Riverside Soaps is eco-friendly and provides customers with excellent natural, and nearly-natural, vegetarian and vegan bath and body products. WE STRIVE FOR TRANSPARENCY: there is nothing to hide here, and we list all our ingredients in plain language that everyone can understand.

Riverside Soaps Ingredients:

Riverside Soaps looks to nature to develop our products in a way that’s been forgotten over the years. Our “Down the Garden Path” line contains all-natural ingredients inspired by nature. Wild-harvested organic ingredients hand-picked from a local farm such as Dandelions, Pineapple Weed, Clover, and Plantain inspire our soaps and body products, while honey from the apiary collective we belong to next door adds another element to some of our products. Our “Nearly Natural” line, which includes the same natural ingredients, is sometimes colored with mica or iron oxides, or scented with Phthalate-free fragrance oils for those who are sensitive, or allergic, to fragrance oils but still want a little fragrance in their products.

We are against the use of child labor and forced labor practices, and the destruction of our rainforests.

PRINCIPLES

  •   Use NO animal products with the exception of milk & honey
  •   Be completely transparent
  •   ‘Know Your Farmer’ or know your source – buy local, or free trade certified when necessary
  •   Use zero packagings, or packaging that does the least harm in production, and can be reused, composted, or recycled
  •   Use only sustainable ingredients
  •   Use well-researched, natural, safe botanicals
  •   Educate our customers

“Riverside Soaps partnered with Palm Done Right as a step to ensure that Fair Trade enterprises are supported by our little business, but also because we believe in Palm Done Right’s mission to help restore land by adding biodiversity back to the areas where it had once been stripped away. By planting indigenous plant species among the Palms, they are healing the earth in Ecuador, and that goes a long way toward helping us achieve our goal of being an eco-friendly company.” Theresa Marshall, Owner

Why You Should Get Involved
with Palm Done Right

Palm can be grown for good, bringing benefits to:

  • Our planet, due to palm oil’s land efficiency.
  • Local communities, due to the economic development oil palm production creates.
  • Our market, due to palm oil’s versatility and functionality as an ingredient, lifting product quality and performance.

Together, we can influence change for:

  • Manufacturers that are still using conflict palm oil for their products.
  • Retailers that are still listing products that contain conflict palm oil.
  • Brokers and distributors that are still supplying their customers with products that contain conflict palm oil.
  • Shoppers that have the power to vote with their dollar.
