About

The Dish...

Hi!
My company is called Real. Soaps because many "soaps" out there are not actually soap; they're detergent. The chemicals in them make them far less than natural - some are potentially dangerous. Sadly, it is this way with a lot of body products, so I learned how to make them myself with REAL ingredients. I am completely self-taught and have always been focused on taking what I have learned and sharing it with others, so they can make smarter choices about the products they use.
What started in 2012 as a few handmade soaps has grown! I now have an ever-expanding line of all natural products, and I continue to make every product in small batches with intention & care - and with my own two hands.
Real. Soaps has gained popularity through word of mouth, friends and family, Etsy, working with local shops, farmer's markets, craft fairs and pop-up shops. I now stock over 25 stores here in Chicago and several out of state. I am proud to be a part of West Elm's LOCAL initiative, taking local makers from across the country and featuring them in West Elm retail stores.

If you want to try any of the all natural products I make, you can order some here from my Etsy shop, you can e-mail me a custom order request, or you can visit Real. Soaps' Facebook Page. Click "Shop Now" to order directly from Facebook or click the 'Find Real. Soaps' App and look for our products at a store near you!! .....if you don't see them, tell your local gift boutique to order! :)

Popular products may sell out quickly and temporarily be on Back Order. This means they are currently out of stock, but that there is more being made! Ordering an item that is currently on back order is a worry-free way to ensure that you will be first in line to receive it as soon as it's ready.

Shipping time is set at 1- 2 weeks, but generally is much faster than that. If an item is on back order, or your order will take longer than 1- 2 weeks to ship for any reason, you will receive a message with explanation and expected ship date.

The Seller is responsible to make, package, and ship purchased items in a timely manner.

The Buyer is responsible to furnish an accurate and current address.

The USPS is responsible to safely deliver the package to the address provided. Once USPS has accepted the package, the Seller has no control or responsibility for delivery. A tracking number is provided to the Buyer. If a package is lost, mis-delivered, or damaged the Buyer will need to file a claim for reimbursement with USPS.

All orders are shipped via USPS.

All of the above polices for U.S. shipping also apply to International orders.

All International orders must allow for a minimum of 4 weeks from ship date before replacement or claim as not delivered. I do not accept responsibility for any taxes, tariffs or fees that may be applied by the government of your city, state, or country. Please check to see if there are any additional fees for you to receive a package from the United States of America.
Additional policies and FAQs
Wholesale & Custom orders are always welcome! Email for details or look for my Etsy Wholesale account!

Custom orders are not refundable.

Please know that most of my equipment/tools are shared. If, for example, an item does not list a nut oil in its ingredients, it may still have come in contact with a nut oil at some point. Feel free to contact me with any concerns.

I am not liable, nor can I take any responsibility for slips, falls or any injury, bodily or otherwise.

I am also not liable, nor can I take any responsibility for any reactions to any products. If you have sensitivities or allergies, please make sure to check the ingredients on each item you are interested in before purchasing.
Privacy
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 has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally Identifiable Information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as described in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

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.

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 fulfil 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 toimprove 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.

Google



Google's advertising requirements can be summed up by Google's Advertising Principles. They are put in place to provide a positive experience for users. https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/1316548?hl=en


We use Google AdSense Advertising on our website.


Google, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to serve ads on our site.

California Online Privacy Protection Act



CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf


According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.

Once this privacy policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering our website.

Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy' and can easily be found on the page specified above.


You will be notified of any Privacy Policy changes:

• On our Privacy Policy Page

Can change your personal information:

• By emailing us

• By calling us

• By logging in to your account

• By chatting with us or by sending us a support ticket


How does our site handle Do Not Track signals?

We honor Do Not Track signals and Do Not Track, plant cookies, or use advertising when a Do Not Track (DNT) browser mechanism is in place.


Does our site allow third-party behavioral tracking?

It's also important to note that we allow third-party behavioral tracking



COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)



When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, United States' consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online.


We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.

Do we let third-parties, including ad networks or plug-ins collect PII from children under 13?



Fair Information Practices



The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.


In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify you via email

• Within 7 business days


We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.



CAN SPAM Act



The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.


We collect your email address in order to:

• Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions

• Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders.

• Send you additional information related to your product and/or service

• Market to our mailing list or continue to send emails to our clients after the original transaction has occurred.


To be in accordance with CANSPAM, we agree to the following:

• Not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.

• Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.

• Include the physical address of our business or site headquarters.

• Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used.

• Honor opt-out/unsubscribe requests quickly.

• Allow users to unsubscribe by using the link at the bottom of each email.


If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at

• Follow the instructions at the bottom of each email.

and we will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.

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 certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
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.

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.

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 period: 4 years.
