I've been in business for 20 yrs. and when Etsy came along I just had to be a part of it. I love selling direct to customers and being able to have the one on one contact with people here on Etsy. It's an amazing community to be a part of and I just adore all of the handmade creations here.

I've traveled near and far to collect inspiration and ingredients for my delicious creations. 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 100 stores & galleries across the USA and Europe. They have been featured in Broadway plays, as gifts for attendees to events presented by 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. Please take the time to read it as it should answer any concerns or questions you might have. 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 peoples orders up as well. Thank you, DeShawn

Shipping
I guarantee that I will get your purchase processed, packaged and shipped in a very timely manner. I carefully package your order and ship within 1-5 business days. When I am not too busy orders go out same day. I do not ship on weekends or holidays, so if you place your order on Friday it will not ship out until Monday.

During HOT weather times, soaps may become sticky upon delivery. If that's the case just unwrap them and let them sit in a cool dry room for a couple of hours. This is due to the natural glycerin in the soap

Shipping times vary, but you can follow this general chart to estimate the amount of time it takes to get to you once your items have shipped.

US East Coast: 1 to 2 days
US Midwest: 2 to 3 days
US West Coast: 3 to 4 days

Everywhere else: 5 to 30 days

again these are estimates, if you have not received your package in a timely manner then please contact me and we can track it down. There is no tracking for international orders, sorry.

***INSURANCE AND DELIVERY CONFIRMATION***
I add delivery confirmation to packages so that we can track it. If you like you may purchase insurance for your package to ensure safe delivery. If you would like insurance you must let me know as soon as you've made your purchase so that I can add it. I recommend purchasing insurance for any purchases over $50. In any case if you have not purchased insurance I am not responsible for these items once they have left my hands.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE:
***INTERNATIONAL ORDERS you are responsible for all custom and taxes upon arrival to your country****** Insurance is not available for international orders and I am not responsible for items lost in the mail.

AGAIN IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE ASK BEFORE MAKING THE PURCHASE SO THAT WE ARE BOTH CONFIDENT IN YOUR PURCHASE.
Additional policies and FAQs
************IMPORTANT INFORMATION***************
Last but not least, I strive to make a high quality luxurious soap. I use the finest of ingredients. For fragrance I use mostly essential oils, but I do use some fragrance oils. I choose the highest quality oils available from many different regions around the world. I pick some of my own herbs and I buy natural ingredients from reputable vendors. I have not had anyone report any reactions to my 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. I get my ingredients from many different countries and some times ingredients from one region are different from those of another so I can not guarantee you will not have a reaction and I am not liable for any such reaction. I make no medical or curing claims in any way, my soap is not made to heal any conditions. You must consult a doctor for any medical or skin condition.
