ABOUT DeShawn Marie
I enjoy traveling to exotic places with different cultures to gather new ingredients and inspiration for my soap. I am inspired by nature, food, candy, pastries, agriculture, different cultures, colors and textures. For instance my Limoncello soap was inspired by the Amalfi coast in Italy where I was served this delicious drink for the first time. I had been smelling lemons growing wild on the trees there for a few days when one evening in a beautiful little cafe in Positano they served me a complimentary Limoncello. After having that first drink of Limoncello I just knew I had to recreate this experience in my soap. It's moments like these that keep my creative juices flowing and my mind and hands racing to the studio to create, create, create!

It's possible that you may have seen some of my work at some point over the years as I have displayed my candles & soaps in over 150 stores & galleries across the USA and Europe. They have been featured in Broadway plays, as gifts for attendees to events presented by the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Pulitzer Prize winner John Patrick Shanley. I created custom designed candles for Jeremy Shockey's home among a few other people that prefer to not be mentioned. You might have also run across some of the many write ups on my products in the New Jersey Monthly, The Jersey Journal, The Current, Stuff Magazine, the Hoboken and Union City reporters to mention a few. By designing my own products it gives me the ability to create very unique one of a kind corporate gifts, wedding, party and special event favors that you can't get anywhere else. I love what I do and I think it shows in my work. If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact me. I hope you love my creations as much as I do. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to the DeShawn Marie Etsy Shop. Thank you for taking the time to browse and consider purchasing my soap. I like everyone to be happy with their purchase. To avoid any confusion please read this page so you know the policies I have here for doing business through Etsy. It helps eliminate any problems before they happen. Always feel free to convo me with any questions that are not answered here prior to purchase.

I strive to make a quality soap that is beautiful, functional and luxurious, but please keep in mind that handmade soap will look different from batch to batch. All of my soaps contain natural oils and botanical ingredients that do change the color or alter the appearance over time. This is a part of the natural beauty of handmade soap and makes each one very unique. Every soap will look different, please do not expect every single one to look exactly like the pictures. These are handmade creations, not mass produced to be identical. I love the variations and I hope you do too.

For all of the gift packs, soap packs, sample packs and bulk orders the following list is the list of scents to choose from. Please specify the scents you want in the "Note to Seller" box during checkout. If you do not specify or write "you pick" in the "Note to Seller" box I will assume you would like me to pick a nice assortment of best sellers and faves for you and ship it out promptly. This keeps your order from being held up and holding other people's orders up as well.

Additional policies and FAQs
************IMPORTANT INFORMATION***************
We strive to make a high quality luxurious soap. We use the finest of ingredients. For fragrance we use essential oils when possible, but we do use some fragrance oils. We choose the highest quality oils available from many different regions around the world. We grow and pick some of our own herbs and buy natural ingredients from reputable vendors. We have not had anyone report any severe reactions to our soap, but this does not mean that no one will have a reaction. Everyone's skin is different and you must test soaps as you would anything else. If you are known to have sensitive skin or allergic reactions then please test the soap on a small section for a few days prior to using all over. We source our ingredients from many different countries and some times ingredients from one region are different from those of another so we can not guarantee you will not have a reaction and we are not liable for any such reaction. We make absolutely no medical or curing claims in any way, our soap is not made to heal any conditions. You must consult a doctor for any medical or skin conditions.
