    I too have enjoyed Rias soap for years & tried many others. Hers certainly can not be beaten..not only the quality but also the price.
    Maybe they might still do markets..hope I chance upon them sometime.
    COVID mandates have & are ruining many small -medium businesses. I read 40 years ago this was to come.

      Yes, sadly I can no longer find Ria's Soaps either. Loved them too and have been using them since they started!

      Hi, yes they have stopped operating their business - I looked them up on the NZ companies register and they filed papers to cease operating with the IRD and then the companies register. Such a shame.

      Try Global Soaps, they are amazing. I used to buy from both them and Rias but sadly it seems Rias is simply gone.

    I love Rias Soaps too! I'm very upset that I can no longer find them. Why did she not leave a note on her website or email all her loyal customers to let us know what is going on?! I would have considered buying this business if it needed to go up for sale. I'd love to know what happened and if it will ever be back, nothing else compares to Rias Soaps 🙁

      Global Soaps are really great too. I used to buy rias, but have also bought Global Soaps. Love them both.

    Looks like I am not alone in searching for Ria's soap.
    Hope they are doing well somewhere.

    I love Ria's soaps. Have had no joy with the website lately. If they are no longer producing soap is there any other company that is similiar?

    Trying to order soap online from Ria's, as I have done for a few years, but no online presence or contact details?
    Please let me know if you are still in business - hope so.

    Kia ora,

    Ria Soaps are incredible products! I've been buying them for 20 years now. However, the owner is rude, nasty and bad tempered. She refused to complete a big order for me because I rung to query a product. I have had a number of friends try to buy the products for me, and she has flat out refused to sell them as they were for me, and been extremely rude to them. After 20 years of buying these fabulous products, and leaving great reviews on her website, I will now go elsewhere to buy what I need. Customer service should be your number one priority. Now you have lost a good customer and I will no longer be recommending your products as I have been for years.
