Shipping and Returns Policy

shipping policy

Everyone of my organic skincare treats are lovingly handmade to order in micro batches for maximum freshness and efficacy. These treats are special because we add love in each bottle and jar we produce in our blending studio. Packages typically ship from London within 1-5 days of us receiving your order. Please allow another 3-5 business days to your destination. International delivery from London may take an additional 8 working days. Any additional custom delays are unfortunately out of our control.

Within the United Kingdom we ship all orders complimentary via 2nd class post from Royal Mail, unless you have selected 1st Class delivery. 

We use Royal Mail for international delivery at a cost of £8.00 per package regardless of size and would advise that it is your responsibility to track your package once it is tendered to the shipping carrier.

Skin Alchemists Ltd is not responsible for any delays incurred due to local or international customs issues, nor any additional duties of taxes your country may require.We recommend familiarising yourself with your local import policies prior to ordering.

No returns or refunds will be issued due to customs delays, holds or duty fees beyond our control
