My dog Loco & I are enjoying the weekend at the beach. One of the great advantages of having my studio located near the beach. Hope you all are enjoying your memorial day weekend too. We're making it sweeter for you with the largest soap sale of the year
Lots of soap loaves on the curing racks ready for my big sale this week. Lowest soap loaf prices of the year. Hope you have the opportunity to take advantage of the sale prices. Much love, DeShawn

Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations

Sorry our soap loaf orders are made to order and we do not accept refunds or exchanges as the minute you place the order we begin either making it or ordering supplies to make it. We do not keep them in stock. If you have a complaint or problem please contact us and we can try to work together to solve any dissatisfaction. Thank you.
Shipping
We guarantee to process your order promptly, but we make all of our soap loaves to order so it does take quite a bit longer than our individual soaps in our other shop. Allow 2 to weeks for most orders and up to 5 weeks for large orders over 30 loaves.

We ship all soap loaf orders from Largo, FL via USPS priority mail. Shipping times vary, if you have not received your package in a timely manner then please contact us and we can track it down.

We add a delivery confirmation to packages so that we can track it. If you like you may add insurance to your package to ensure safe delivery, just let us know and we'll send you an invoice for any difference. If you have not purchased insurance we are not responsible for these items once they have left our hands. The post office is then responsible at that point.

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 all natural products. 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.

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

All loaves are now 3.5 to 4 pounds measuring approx. 11" L x 3.25" W x 2.75" H If sliced into bars you can expect to get 11 one inch 5oz bars. Full loaf too much? We now have half loaves available that weigh approx. 1.75 lbs to 2 lbs and measure approx 5.5" L x 3.25" W x 2.75" H Due to handcrafting size, shape, color and designs vary.

Custom and personalized orders

We can do custom and personalized orders but we do not accept any custom orders during busy times like the Fall/Holiday season. Feel free to message us if you think there is something we could assist you with. We'd be happy to consider your custom project as long as it is at least 5 loaves.

Care instructions

For glycerin loaves it is best to store them wrapped if not being used except for the soaps with botanicals like the Perfect Rose, Lilac Rose, Gardenia Chamomile. You want those to breathe so the moisture doesn't affect the botanicals.

The cold process loaves should always be unwrapped and left out to cure.

All handmade soap will last a longer if kept dry between uses. Please use a draining soap dish and keep it away from direct streams of water. They will also keep better if kept out of humid conditions and direct sunlight.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All loaves come wrapped in brown wax coated butcher paper with a DeShawn Marie label on them. If you want individual bars with individual packaging then please shop at my other Etsy shop http://deshawnmarie.etsy.com

Wholesale availability

This is our wholesale soap loaf shop so all pricing is wholesale, just provide your store info upon checkout. If you would like to purchase our individual bars that are packaged in our branded gold box then please message me here and request info. I will get back to you ASAP.
