Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Jason Rivers (or “JR” as his patients call him) created Riversol after more than 20 years of clinical dermatology to offer a safe, anti-aging solution for his patients with sensitive skin. Today, his products are enjoyed by customers around the world as he continues to treat patients directly at his clinic in Vancouver, Canada.

We sat down with Dr. Rivers to find out why he made Riversol. Plus, you can find out how to get a 15-day Riversol Sample Kit to try for yourself.
After 20 or so years of clinical practice at my clinic, I was increasingly apprehensive about recommending existing products to patients with sensitive skin. The majority of skin care products on the market contained ingredients and fillers that can cause unwanted reactions in those with sensitive skin. Most of which were filled with dyes, fragrances, sulphates, or formaldehyde.
I set about working with a local formulation chemist to create a product that would be to my standards, something I could proudly share with my patients. To this day the same formulation chemist is involved in every batch we make and all of it is produced right here in Vancouver.
What makes Riversol special?
From the start I've always insisted that we include a unique antioxidant from the Pacific red cedar tree called Beta-Thujaplicin. We call it Beta-T for short. To my knowledge, we're the only topical skincare company in the world to use it. I've spent many years as a dermatologist working with patients that have severe sun damage and skin cancer. The more research I did, the more impressed I was with this unique ingredient and its ability to reduce the look of sun spots and improve skin clarity and texture.
Am I obligated to order anything after taking the sample?
No, I created the Riversol sampling program because I understand how different each individual patient's skin can be. I wanted to provide a chance for individuals to try Riversol out without any strings attached or financial commitment. So the sample is simply a sample. We charge a minimal postage fee and there are no additional charges or commitments and nothing to cancel if you find it isn't for you.
What’s in the sample?
The Riversol sample kit includes 3 cleanser sachets, 3 serum sachets, and 3 moisturizer sachets. These are customized to match your skin type and concerns. Get a Riversol Sample
