About asliceofdelight

Inhale with Caution!

A Slice of Delight – is all about serving you aromatic happiness through handcrafted, visually and artistically appealing bath and body products. My goal is to help create a moment of fun and pleasure in your day when you reach for my bath bombs, soaps or body creams - 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 which includes all natural oils and butters, eye-popping colors that are body safe, and fun fragrances that are phthalate-free. I've developed products which along with their aroma will spark a nostalgic memory - where the ingredients all 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 January 23, 2023
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.

PRIVACY POLICY
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

INFORMATION I COLLECT

To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order that may involve monograms, for example), if you contact me directly.

WHY I NEED YOUR INFORMATION AND HOW I USE IT

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

● As needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
● When you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
● If necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
● As necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

● ETSY: I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
● SERVICE PROVIDERS: I engage with limited and trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop which in turn allows me to service you, this includes delivery companies - such as USPS. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services i.e. your postal address.
● BUSINESS TRANSFERS: If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
● COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS: I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to:
(a) respond to legal process or to government requests;
(b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies;
(c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or
(d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

DATA RETENTION

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time periods: 7 years.

YOUR RIGHTS

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

● ACCESS: You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
● CHANGE, RESTRICT, DELETE: You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. In this instance I will work with Etsy as the main holder of your data. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will work with Etsy to generally delete your personal information upon request.
● OBJECT: You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will work with Etsy to delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
● COMPLAIN: If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
