Here at Clean River Products we list all our ingredients so our customers can be confident in the products they are purchasing. We use 100% natural ingredients of the highest quality. We never use harsh detergents, synthetic fragrances, dyes, or preservatives. When labeling our soaps and cosmetics we use the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients.

The International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients, abbreviated INCI, is a system for naming cosmetic ingredients. It is a nomenclature based on international lists of ingredients known and used by pharmacists and scientists worldwide. The INCI is the mandatory nomenclature in the United States, the European Union, and now Canada. We have provided a list of the ingredients we currently use in our various products as you see them on the labels with the INCI name and their common names you might be more familiar with.
