About

Inhale with Caution!

A Slice of Delight – is all about serving you aromatic happiness through handcrafted, visually and artistically appealing soaps. My goal is to help create a moment of fun and pleasure in your day when you reach for my soap - be it in the bath, shower or at the kitchen sink. Created for all ages from 5 to 105.

A Slice of Delight is headquartered in Berkeley, California in a 2 story - 1920's bungalow period home where I have lived for the past 20 years. My business consists of me, myself and I - doing it all. Along with the household fan club and cheer-leading squad - of my husband and identical twin boys.

I use the highest quality ingredients – moisture rich glycerin base formulated locally, eye-popping colors, and fun fragrances that might spark a nostalgic memory - all of which come from reputable and independent bath and body suppliers. There is also a conscious effort for me to minimize waste in our world by choosing bio-degradable packaging and re-use of shipping/packing materials as often as possible.

How did I get to this spot in my life?
In 2007 I took a soap crafting class at The Nova Studio (an hour bike ride away from my house) and I had a lot of fun. I found myself then taking another class, taught by guest instructor Debbie Chialtas (Sopaylove). One Soapylove class, always, leads to another. Top that with Soap Queen TV technique vidoes from Brambleberry, and all of a sudden I found myself slip sliding away into a new crafty endeavor. When 2009 rolled around - I put my 25 year corporate career behind me - it was a respectful departure - and with more available time - I cranked up the volume ;+} .

Soap Art ?
Sure why not...
I was referred to, at a craft fair once, as “The Picasso of Soap”, even if my favorite painter is Chagall. I guess, when you start to cut and mold soap that is embedded inside of more soap, or you create patterns, circles, waves, or diagonals with molds, which I do, then it becomes an artistry of another kind.

How would I describe my creative process?
Cookies, Cakes, Target and Crate and Barrel. I’m not talking about "eating" or "shopping", but surfing online, perusing paper & online catalogs or popping into a brick and mortar store, & seeing how the merchandising and color palates are pulled together. Many times I buy fragrances from their description on the supplier’s websites. It’s always fun when the new scents arrive. I smell the fragrances and let them percolate. Sometimes the aroma makes a straight on “HELLO” with me and other times not right away. It takes some “relationship building” with the scent. Eventually I’ll see colors that tie me back to the fragrance, and somewhere, somehow, a design is born.

I'm really excited and motivated to be on this journey - developing a new discipline around designing,crafting, packaging, and marketing my soapy art.

Thank you for taking the time to let me share just a glimpse. I hope you will join in the fun by lathering up and treating yourself to A Slice of Delight!

    In 2009, I transitioned out of my technology profession after 25 years with support from my husband, to "rest" & "rejuvenate". Not much time lapsed before the "resting" unleashed my creative juices to begin, nurture and grow "A Slice of Delight".

Shop policies

Last updated on August 19, 2016
Thank you for visiting my shop. I strive to create glycerin soap that is fun to use and makes you or someone you may gift it to feel good and appreciated.

My packaging for all soaps, excluding salt bars <which did not take too kindly to this wrapping>, is eco-friendly. I thoughtfully chose to use environmentally conscious material since it is something people are more aware of these days and the option is there. I do live in Berkeley so it's hard to ignore knowing every Friday I pull our compost green bin to the curve for pickup. The compostable wrapping I use is made from wood cellulose fibers sourced with sustainable forestry principles. It is certified biodegradable, compostable and made carbon zero.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
Payment
PayPal, Credit Cards and Money Orders are my current method of payment.

For Paypal-
You do not need a PayPal account to pay - simply scroll to the bottom of the PayPal link (once you have purchased) and there will be an option for non account holders to pay via credit card.

Payment is due at the time of sale. Please contact me if you need more time. If your transaction has not been paid - I do make one attempt to contact you. If you have not replied to my attempt or still have not made payment, then within 48 hours, the sale will be canceled.

Reserve listings - If a reserve listing is requested by you I work very hard to communicate with you to confirm the reserve and list shortly after we are confirmed on the listing items, price and shipping. Because it is a reserve listing and requested by you I do request that the payment then be respectfully paid within 24 hours after I inform you it is available. I realize life can get in the way so I would request you communicate with me that you need more time. Listings are good for for 72 hours and if payment still has not been made I will deactivate the listing in order to make inventory available to other potential buyers.

Money Orders - upon receipt of your money order and within the following business day of deposit at my bank - your soaps will be shipped.

All orders are processed in order of received payments. Orders are not processed until the transaction is paid in full. Delay in payment may result in extended processing and delivery time.

California residents - We are required to collect sales tax in our county of 9.50% on all orders placed in California. PayPal will automatically add California sales tax to your invoice.
Shipping
Products are shipped through USPS first class, priority, or flate fate priority mail depending on the size/weight of the package. Or International flat rate.
***************

(1 - 3 soaps) - First Class - US Only - if your order is under 16 ounces - the soaps will be packaged and protected with bubble wrap and then mailed in a bubble mailer.

(4 - 10 soaps) - US Flat Rate - $6.95 - a good deal to get the most out of your shipping dollars.

Gift Set - US Priority - rates will vary

** International Customers **

To make it the most economical - I am using the International Flat rate shipping pricing. You will get the most out of the international rate by purchasing up to 10 soaps at ONE flat rate. As of Jan 27, 2013 - International rates have increased significantly. I have set up the shipping so if you are international - you will be charged the flat rate for the first soap and then from there you can continue to add 9 more soaps at no shipping charge. Current rates are as follows

Canada - $23.00
All other international destinations - $30

One way to make the shipping charges seem palatable - find a friend and share the costs!

International customers are responsible for all fees, taxes, and duties associated with shipping to their respective countries

UK customers - please be aware of your VAT Rates and the Royal Mailer fee - https://www.gov.uk/vat-rates

************
I will combine shipping on orders and if you are overcharged I will refund the difference over $1.00 back to you

All orders are shipped to your Etsy address. I can accommodate shipping to another address (to give as a gift), if you indicate another shipping location in your Buyer's Comments.

I will be shipping the next business day after confirmed payment.

When you are able by all means reuse (or recycle) any mailing material for your own purposes or if you can, take it to a local packaging retailer for reuse.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am unable to accept returns due to the nature of the product. Please contact me if you are not delighted with any aspect of service or product (I ask this kindly before leaving feedback) and we will work together so we can reach a fair and mutually agreed upon resolution which will make us both happy!

If your order is returned due to incorrect address information supplied to us, we will not refund shipping costs. Package can be reshipped at buyers expense or order refunded minus shipping costs when the order has arrived back in my possession.

If you have skin sensitivities and/or allergies please read the ingredients listed prior to purchasing.
Additional policies and FAQs
Soap slices can vary slightly in weight because most (but not all) are handcut. All listings will indicate the weight range to account for that variation.

When you start enjoying your soap please be sure to use a well-draining soap dish (one with holes or slats in the bottom). This will help the soap from getting mushy and last longer.
