Are your products TSA compliant?

Yes. All Ries travel bottles are approved to carry on any flight. Our Original large bottle holds 3.4oz (100ml) and our Weekender mini size holds 1.7oz (50ml).

How many bottles fit in a quart size bag?

You can snuggly fit four (4) 3.4oz Ries bottles in a quart-size bag. Five (5) 1.7oz Ries bottles fit comfortably. 

We know TSA agents can vary on how strict they follow requirements city by city, but our large bottles carry up to 3.4 oz and include an embossed label on the bottom of each bottle for proof of size should any issues arise. The TSA website says each flier is limited to one quart-size bag in their carry-on, but we find that they are more strict about bottle size versus bag size/type.

How much does an empty bottle weigh?

Our 100ml bottle weighs 1.9oz (50g) when empty and the smaller 50ml bottle weighs 1.4oz (40g) empty.

Are Ries products reusable?

Yes! Ries bottles are designed to be reusable and will last through hundreds of uses over many years. 

How do I use and reuse my Ries?

If you're new to using an airless pump, a few quick tips will ensure the smoothest journey possible.

To use, twist off the entire cap and fill with your favorite goops. Reattach the cap and pump until the product begins to distribute. If your goop takes longer than usual to pump, turn over the Ries bottle and gently push up the platform until you feel a slight resistance. Return to the upright position and pump. To lock, twist the outer cap to the closed position before tossing in your bag or suitcase.

Are Ries products dishwasher safe?

Yes! We recommend using the top rack only. For best results, hand wash with warm soapy water and let air dry.

To hand-wash the pump, remove the top, flip it upside down, then place the bottom of the pump directly under the faucet letting water flow into the pump. While doing this, engage the pump, pushing water through the bottle spout and pushing out any excess product. You can then let the top air dry overnight.

What types of materials do you use?

Our bottles are BPA-Free and made of medical-grade PCR, a recycled plastic resin that is FDA-approved and safe for skin and hair. 

While each bottle is made to last for years through hundreds of uses, the bottle can be fully recycled once it reaches the end of its life.

Do your products work with my serums, oils and heavier creams?

Yes! Ries is compatible with all grooming and beauty products. We specifically created this product for curly haired women who often use LOTS of heavy conditioner.

We do advise using caution when flying with products that are very oil or water-based, or are generally less viscous. Due to the extreme pressurization in the cabin environment, leaks can occur.

Does it work with foaming liquids?

With foaming liquids, it often comes down to the type of pump: "The main difference between liquid soap dispensers and foaming soap dispensers is the valve. In the liquid soap dispenser the liquid pushes through the soap dispenser causing the soap to dispense out into your hand. With a foaming soap dispenser air and soap are pushed through the dispenser making foam."

Our pump and valve are regular dispensers and not made for foaming. Product will dispense in its liquid form, which you're then able to use your hands to create a foam and lather like you would with other cleansing products. It won't, however, come out as a foam.
