About us

Rivers Remedies has been open for over ten years and we hold the same ethos now that we did from day one - only natural and organic products with the lowest carbon foot print possible.

We know we could have gone down the traditional route of selling the most profitable brands from around the world, but we got into this business to make a difference to the planet. 

Humans have a lot of choices now, and we thrive to provide effective, fresh, natural and organic products ethically sourced and help towards saving our own health and the planet. 

- No petrochemicals - better for your health & the planet

- Locally sourced brands - fresher the better & low carbon foot print

- Intense critique of all ingredients to provide higher organic & natural percentages- quality control

- No testing on animals

- Vegan options

MADE IN BRITAIN

All of our skin, body and hair care products are mixed and bottled in the British Isles. We only trade with local companies who source locally wherever possible and employ fair trade and ethical practices for any international sourcing.

  • It’s better for you- products are fresher when they get to you

  • It’s better for the UK - you are helping to support small to medium UK businesses

  • It’s better for the planet - some ‘eco’ products travel through two or three different continents before they reach you- that’s a pretty big carbon footprint! Ours are never more than a days' drive from where they were made.

  • It’s better for us - we can order in small quantities, to keep things fresh and relevant. We can contact the makers directly for any queries or issues.

NATURES' BEST INGREDIENTS

Did you know that a product only needs to have 3% Organic ingredients to call itself ‘Organic’ on the label, the rest of the ingredients can be anything? We only stock companies that state the percentage of Organic ingredients they contain, and we look for a minimum of 70%.

We don’t like companies that put a few natural ingredients in a base of petro-chemicals and try to pass if off as ‘Natural’, we investigate all of the ranges that we sell to make sure they are doing what they claim.

We like companies that use natural ingredients at therapeutic doses, not just as a fragrance. Our products are as effective as they are safe and gentle.

The Fresher The Better - our products aren’t laden with preservatives and are packed full of lovely, natural ingredients so we don’t want them sitting around. We order in small batches to keep things fresh on our shelves. Wherever possible, we order directly from the maker so that our stock is always fresh from the source.

NO TESTING ON ANIMALS

We will not purchase any products that have been tested on animals (except the human, friends and family, volunteer variety of animal), or that use ingredients that have been tested on animals.

We have a wide range of Vegan products in all of our departments.

EARTH FRIENDLY

We believe in Green

In everything we do and every purchase we make, we consider it’s environmental impact.

All of our suppliers are Green and Eco-friendly too. To work with us, you have to be nice to the environment.

VALUE FOR MONEY

We believe in value for money

We don’t like fancy marketing and gimmicks so we make sure that the value of the item is in the bottle, not the marketing. We only work with companies that we know and trust.

We try to cater to every budget, and we select the best value of each price range.
