Raroa Gully Castile Soap

Stay Home and Wash Your Hands with Soap

At Raroa Gully we use New Zealand Olive Oil to make a range of Castile soap designed for sensitised skin. When used correctly it also kills viruses and bacteria.

Our soaps give your body a breather from the effects of hand sanitiser, preservatives and perfumes and are gentle enough to use again and again, day after day. We do this by combining a Castile recipe with the best ingredients from New Zealand and overseas.

Our Story

My family has always suffered from eczema and psoriasis. There were multiple doctors visits and prescription products containing many chemicals and ingredients that didn't work.

Over ten years ago I started months of research, ingredient sourcing and testing products on friends and family. I developed a recipe that was gentle and nurturing enough for my whole family - Hopi Handmade Castile Soap was born.

Since then, our family business has grown to sell online, in shops, at Otaki Yard and as a custom wholesale product. We supply to the tourism industry and to people who travel a lot for their jobs. Now my daughter Samantha and her cousin Kristen work with me and my husband Simon occasionally helps out at the Otaki Yard Family Market.

We support the Eczema Association of New Zealand.

Ethically Sourced Ingredients

Our essential oils are all guaranteed by our Wellington supplier to be ethically sourced from New Zealand and around the world. Our olive oil is sourced from The Olive Press in Greytown and comes from organically grown local olives. Our seawater is from the south of Makara Bay in Wellington and our whole milk is from Te Horo.

Eco Packaging

At Raroa Gully using sustainable packaging has been a must from the start in 2014. All our products come in reusable and recyclable packaging to help minimise our carbon footprint. Our cardboard boxes and delivery bags are home compostable.
