MERMAID SEA SALT Soap is the color of the turquoise Caribbean Sea loaded in mineralizing sea salt. We designed this soap with a tropical scent profile fit for a mermaid. We blended tropical fruits & juicy melons with lime, tangerine & kumquat to get this scent. It's sweet, tropical, with a punch of citrus. You can't stop smelling it.
If you've never tried a sea salt soap, try one- it's a true spa experience unlike any other.
INGREDIENTS: Natural Pacific sea salt, coconut oil, water, lye, castor bean oil, phthalate free fragrance oil, soap colorant, cosmetic mica.
ABOUT SEA SALT SOAP:
Sea salt soap is a different recipe & type of soap than our original soap. It isn’t merely sprinkled with sea salt; it contains nearly half pure sea salt & half a coconut soap recipe formulated to make a creamy lotion-like lather. This soap is a different soap experience than most people are used to, but once you try it, you’ll see why it’s been around for centuries in therapeutic bath houses and spas.
WHY WOULD I WANT SEA SALT IN MY SOAP?
Sea salt naturally is mineral rich with magnesium, potassium, calcium iodine and zinc. Your skin drinks up these necessary minerals as the salt draws toxins from pores. Salt is naturally antibacterial, antifungal & antiviral. Sea water bathing has been known forever to be the prescription for many skin problems that plague us. It is truly rejuvenating to the body & soul to bathe in sea water. Now you can have your own therapeutic sea water bath in your own bathroom with our sea salt bars.
WILL IT DRY MY SKIN?
The oils used in this soap are chosen to balance the properties of the salt in soap so that it is not drying. The soap recipe is mostly organic, unrefined coconut oil chosen for it’s cleansing & skin loving benefits. It’s balanced by a little castor bean oil which produces a thick, creamy lotion-like lather different from our normal soap recipe, but luxurious in it’s own way. This bar is superfatted to to a very high percentage, meaning there are lots of unsaponified oils available to moisturize your skin.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Because of the nature of this soap, it is rough on the edges & surfaces for the first use. Use a washcloth the first time to buff down the raw edges before using it directly on your skin. After the first use, it becomes like a smooth, polished stone. It’s much heavier & denser than other bars it’s size & will last longer than most soaps if you allow it to drain & dry completely between uses.
Sea salt soap is best used as a body bar. Use with caution on the more delicate skin of your face and I prefer not to shave with salt soap as well since the high salt content can sting if you get shaving knicks.
Etsy handles the payments. While it is usually done very quickly, any delays or problems with payment will have to be handled with Etsy. We don't have access to your payment accounts through your order except to cancel or refund an already processed order.
WHO DO YOU SHIP WITH?
We primarily use USPS and use First Class, regional and flat rate shipping, whichever is most economical to keep shipping charges as low as possible. Our shipping charges combine automatically, so the second item is a minimal additional charge. You'll get the most bang for your shipping buck ordering multiple items in one order, not many individual orders.
We use UPS for some bulk orders. Tracking for either shipping service will be added to your shipment when it's shipped.
WHY NO FREE SHIPPING?
We generally don't do "free shipping" because as you know, shipping is never free. Free shipping would result in us raising prices on every single item substantially to pay for all the single item orders. Free shipping means no combined shipping rates. You'd pay for every item as if it were shipped by itself. So, we don't do free shipping simply because it actually costs customers more. We do have free shipping on a few items where the shipping price wouldn't be less if combined with other items.
Our normal shipping timeframe is 1-3 business days. We try to clear our dashboard out daily, but during busy times (Mondays & after USPS holidays) we may need the whole 3 business days to send your order. If you'd like to guarantee your order ships within 24 business hours (Mon- Fri), you can choose the Expedited Handling Shipping Upgrade at check out for $5 for 1 item and $1 for each additional item. We also have a First Class to Priority Mail Upgrade & an Express 1-2 shipping upgrade available on some items. Check the shipping options for those.
Please order your supplies in plenty of time to allow for occasional human error. We can't be responsible for inconvenience as a result of the delay of the delivery of your package because of damage, order errors or USPS shipping delays. We do our best to get you a well packed order sent quickly and we care about you returning to our shop a second time.
You're covered for a maximum of $100 unless you pay for insurance for the actual value of your order over $100. If there is no option to add insurance to your shipping at check out and you would like insurance, send us an Etsy message and we can add it for you. If USPS is at fault for the damage of your package, $100 is the maximum they will refund to you unless insurance was paid for.
All customs, duty & VAT fees that may incur upon shipping are the buyer's responsibility and we don't have control over these fees nor are we able to estimate what they will be. Check your country's laws regarding these before you ship. Please add your phone number to your international shipments. A phone number is sometimes needed to notify you that your package is waiting on customs fee payment for delivery. A package will not be delivered without customs fee payment. After so many days, they will return the package to us and the shipping is forfeited, so please track your international package and retrieve it when it's at your post office on your end.
International shipments are usually completed in 7-14 business days, but sometimes customs holds an item delaying the delivery and in those cases they can take weeks. Please be advised the delivery time frame is out of our control. We can file lost mail claims after 21 days if your package does not arrive.
SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION PACKAGES:
We occasionally send more valuable packages with signature confirmation so USPS cannot drop a valuable package on a porch and walk away leaving it open to theft or loss. We utilize this service at our discretion. No loss claims can be filed on a package that is signed for. Damage claims can be filed as stated in our policies above. Shipping charges cannot be refunded on orders returned because they are not signed for.
$5 EXPEDITED HANDLING FEE:
This fee means your order is guaranteed to leave Two Wild Hares within 24 business hours (Mon-Fri) of order receipt. No other delivery speed guarantee is implied by this fee. It just means we hurry up and get it on it's way quickly! Our expedited fee is $5 for a single item and $1 for every additional item in the order.
ADDRESS CHANGES and ERRORS:
Please make your order with the correct address entered in your order detail. We will try to accommodate changes when asked, but if an order is sent to the address on your account in Etsy or Paypal (if you paid with Paypal), not the one you asked to change to in Etsy messages, we cannot resend it at our expense (even if we said yes we can change it for you.)
It's a common problem in Etsy for an address change attempt to revert back to the supplied address on the label. We also ship quickly and have a lot of volume and individual requests like this get missed. Also be aware that Etsy pulls shipping addresses from your Paypal account when paying with Paypal, so be careful not to click through without reading where your package is going.
If you make an order with an incorrect address, please cancel your order and place a new order with the correct address so there are no problems with receiving your order. As long as the order hasn't already shipped, we will refund and cancel on your request so the address change can be made.
If you have any questions about shipping or your order, feel free to send us a private message.
