Matariki Rising soap bar was created to honour and celebrate the Māori New Year. It boasts a blend of luxurious skin-loving butters & oils, enriched with coconut milk, charcoal and clay. This gives the soap a luxurious silky feel when it comes in contact with water.
Unlike most naturally scented soaps, the captivating scent will stay on your skin once dry, due to the rich base notes used in the blend.
Limited edition due to very limited availability of the Oud essential oil, individually numbered x/20.
All bars weigh around 100g but due to the handmade nature of them, there is some variance.
It's no secret that BAR OF HOPE is all about sustainable practices and reducing waste. This is why we offer 'naked' bars which come with a product information leaflet and not much else. But if you'd like something a bit more fancy as a gift for someone (or yourself!), we offer a sustainable wrapped option using recycled paper and cotton twine.
BAR OF HOPE products are crafted, cut and prepared for you by hands, not machines, so there will be some variation and uniqueness to each bar.

Indescribably exquisite fragrance. Woody scents are my thing. Have to admit my soap is still in a drawer permeating clothes with scent. I’m holding off using it until my equally good Concrete Jungle is used up.
I never though of myself as a soap fanatic though I do appreciate a nice scent. Then Matariki Arising arrived in my bathroom. I find myself walking in there just to sniff it. I’m a woody, spicy smell person and so many soaps are too flowery for me. This is just perfect. I LOVE it. I want to wash with it five times a day.
