Shipping costs and deliveries

BOTANē offers free global* shipping on retail orders of $149+. We aim to deliver ‘products’ to you at the place of delivery requested by you within the time indicated by us at the time of your order, but we can’t guarantee firm delivery dates or times. Delivery options are set out here, although such delivery estimate information is indicative only. There may be additional import fees upon receipt of goods into your country. The customs / duties fee are the customers fiscal responsibility. BOTANē is not liable for these import fees. Every country has varied regulations on importation duties. BOTANē encourages customers research the appropriate regulatory guidelines and associated fees on imported items for your designated country.

We take every precaution that your shipment is wrapped and packed in protective materials to ensure safe arrival. Once a parcel has been dispatched from our warehouse dock and in the hands of the carrier company, we are no longer liable for the handling responsibility of the package/s. Visible or noted loss or damage due to shipping should be reported to the carrier (and BOTANē) immediately. All claims for product loss or breakage and damage, whether concealed or obvious, must be made to the carrier as soon as possible. The carrier will ask for a detailed damage report (with supporting images). Shipping insurance is a service that protects against lost, stolen, or damaged package/s.

Promotions / Sales

In the event of a promotion or sale a coupon code | voucher | promotion code will be provided. Coupons, vouchers, other promotions may not be combined, used with other coupons / previous orders, sales or discounts. Shipping rates may apply to promotional orders. See ‘Shipping’ for further notes.

Storage

Due to the concentrated natural active botanical ingredients in our products, we recommend short term storage at 50-78°F / 10 – 25°C; longer term storage at a climate-controlled environment at 40 degrees °F / 4°C or below; out of direct sun exposure and humidity. Refrigeration is ideal. Containers should be tightly closed when not in use to avoid moisture and oxidative alterations.

Packaging

Our packaging is a high quality scientific grade plastic which is designed to be used numerous times (certainly not single use). It is fully recyclable and BPA free. This material is used in high tech laboratories for applications using extreme heat / cold / acids / bases which is appropriate since we want the botanical actives to stay in the bottle and the packaging to protect the product contents. Since it is scientific grade, special care should be taken as it is a harder, more rigid material, as opposed to regular cheap plastic. Refrain from excessively squeezing the bottles (opt for the dispensing pump instead, purchasable online) or we suggest flipping the bottles upside down (even storing this way with dispensing cap) and give it a good shake and voila!

Plant-based Ingredients

BOTANē Skin Actives products contain plant-based ingredients and not intended to Diagnose, Treat, Cure or Prevent any Disease. In the rare occasion, individuals could have an adverse reaction to ingredients. Immunologic responses are complex; BOTANē will not be liable for any adverse product reactions and / or personal injuries incurred due to the application / use of our products. All ingredients are listed on our website and secondary packaging. Customers are advised to familiarise themselves with the listed ingredients and should avoid use if individual has an allergy to any ingredients. We advise a patch test to be conducted prior to use to any of our products.
