Prices for products are subject to change at any time and without notice. This may be in response to circumstances such as increase in prices of ingredients etc. I will try to keep price increases to a minimum and will try to provide timely notification of any likely price increases.

Withdrawal, returns and cancellation

You can withdraw the Order by telling me before the Contract is made, if you simply wish to change your mind without giving me a reason, and without incurring any liability

 

This is a distance contract (as defined below) which has the cancellation rights (Cancellation Rights) set out below. The Cancellation Rights, however, do not apply to a contract for the following goods:

  • Sealed ​​goods that are not suitable for return due to health protection of hygiene reasons if they become unsealed after delivery

Right to cancel

You have the right to cancel the Contract provided you notify me with a clear statement setting out your decision       preferably by email as it is possible that Goods ordered will be delivered within 3-5 days of making the order. You       have until the time of the dispatch notification to cancel the Contract. If you wish to cancel after this time then           the Goods ordered must be returned to me in its original packing and unopened at your cost. When I have                   received the Goods back and checked them then payment will be returned to you. This clear statement can be         via the Website or other social media means that I employ such as Instagram or Facebook.

 

I may make a deduction from any reimbursement for loss in value of Goods returned if they have been                         unnecessarily handled  by you. This is because you were liable for that loss. 

Timing of reimbursement 

If I have not offered to collect the Goods, I will make the reimbursement without undue delay and not later than

       a. 14 days after the day I receive back from you any Goods supplied, or

       b. (if earlier) 14 days after the day you provide evidence that you have sent back the Goods

 

If I have offered to collect the Goods I will make the reimbursement without undue delay, and not later that 14           days after the day on which I was informed about your decision to cancel this Contract.

 

I will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless           you have expressly agreed otherwise, in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.

Returning Goods

If you have received Goods in connection with the Contract which you have cancelled, you must send the Goods       back or hand them over to me at 15 Beatrice Road, Margate, Kent. CT9 5SN without delay and in any event not         later than 14 days from the day on which you communicate to your cancellation of this Contract. The deadline is       met if you send back the Goods before the period of 14 days has expired. You agree that you will have to bear           the cost of returning the Goods.

 

For the purposes of these Cancellation Rights, these words have the following meanings:

       a. distance contract means a contract concluded between a trader and a consumer under an organised                      distance sales or service provision scheme  without the simultaneous physical presence of the trader and the              consumer, with the exclusive use of one or more means of distance communication up to and including the                  time at which the contract is concluded.

      b. sales contract means a contract under which a trader transfers or agrees to transfer the ownership of                      goods to a consumer and the consumer pays or agrees to pay the price, including any contract that has both              goods and services as its object

Conformity

I have a legal duty to supply the Goods in comformity with the Contract, and will not have conformed if it does not meet the following obligation

 

Upon delivery the goods will:​​

  • be of satisfactory quality

  • be reasonably fit for the particular purpose that you purchase the Goods for

  • conform to their description

(It is not a failure to conform if the failure has its origin in your materials i.e. differences between colourants and how the soap cures etc)

Circumstances beyond the control of either party

In the event of any failure by a party because of something beyond its reasonable control:

       a. the party will advise the other party as soon as reasonably practicable and

       b. the party's obligation will be suspended so far as is reasonable, provided that the party will act reasonably,                and the party will not be liable for any failure which it could not reasonably avoid, but this will not affect the                  Consumers above rights relating to delivery and any right to cancel

Excluding liability

The Supplier does not exclude liability for (i) any fraudulent act or omission; or (ii) for death or personal injury caused by negligence or breach of the Suppliers other legal obligations. Subject to this, the Supplier is not liable for (i) loss which was not reasonably foreseeable to both parties at the time when the Contract was made, or (ii) loss (e.g. loss of profit) to the Customer's business, trade, craft or profession which would not be suffered by a Consumer - because the Supplier believes the Consumer is not buying the Goods for its business, trade, craft or profession.

Governing law, jurisdiction and complaints

The Contract (including any non contractual matters) is governed by the law of England and Wales.

 

Disputes can be submitted to the jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales or, where the Consumer lives in Scotland or Northern Ireland, in the courts of respectively Scotland or Northern Ireland

 

I try to avoid any dispute so I deal with complaints proactively in the following way:   

  •    If a customer is not satisfied with their purchase then they should contact me in the first instance to find a            solution. I will aim to respond with an appropriate solution within 5 working days
