SUITABILITY OF PURPOSE
We do not accept responsibility for misuse of our
products. It is the responsibility of the customer to
use the products with discretion. We do not accept responsibility
for damage or defect of goods arising from incorrect
storage or use by the customer. We accept no liability
for loss or consequential damage arising from the goods
All products are checked carefully before dispatch
to the customer. We cannot be held responsible for deterioration
of the products due to the customer's incorrect storage
conditions ie, exposure to direct sunlight, frost, humidity
or heat etc. The customer should ensure that the products
are kept in cool and dry conditions (bathroom windowsills
are often exposed to direct sunlight and so are the
creams or products displayed on them), and a clean spatula
is used to remove products from the jar (instead of
fingers) to minimise the risk of deterioration in the
product resulting from external contamination. All liquid
products, such as shampoos and shower gels, should be
shaken well before use to emulsify the ingredients.
Should some oil separation occur in your creams and
lotions, please stir the product with a clean spoon
or a suitable utensil until the oil has blended into
the cream. Oil separation does not affect the qualities
of your cream.
Our products are not preserved with chemicals substances
such as parabens or phenoxyethanol. Instead, we
use pure vitamin E, aspen bark extract & essential
oils in the creams, and vitamin E, apple cider vinegar
& grapefruit seed extract in the shower gels &
shampoos. All our products have a shelf life of a minimum
of 6 months unopened, and 2-3 months from opening. Most
products will be usable for longer, however their quality
may detiriorate. To avoid disappointment, please start
using your products as soon as possible after purchase
and keep them away from sun or heat. Please avoid stocking
up - just like with fresh food, you are best buying
only what you are likely to use within a few months.
We do our best to manufacture our products in a carbon
neutral way - we re-use all packaging materials and
recycle what we cannot re-use. Customers orders are
dispatched in either paper envelopes or carton boxes
made out of recycled paper, products are wrapped in
biodegradeable bubble wrap (to protect against knocks
and leaks during transit) and biodegradeble loose fill
(to minimise damage such as cracks and dents).
Please either re-use or recycle all packaging materials
depending on the policy of your council. All plastic/bubble
wrap/paper/boxes can be recyled in your grey bin. The
loose fill is made from corn and can either be wetted
so it disintegrates or be added to a compost bin.
