Ingredient Listings

We do our best to outline the full list ingredients of each product in our online shop.  However in many instances only the active ingredients of a supplement are listed on our website and not the inactive ingredients (e.g. fillers etc ). If you're concerned about or have a sensitivity to any of the inactive ingredients commonly used in the manufacture of dietary supplements (e.g. silica, cornstarch, magnesium stearate), then we ask that you please check the label of your products carefully before opening them.

We aren't able to accept returns of opened products, once the seal is broken - due to the risk of contamination.

Heat Sensitive products

We use a normal courier delivery service. The heat sensitive products we stock will retain their integrity under normal domestic delivery circumstances.

When ordering a product that may be heat sensitive please ensure you provide sufficient delivery instructions of where the product may be left (for example somewhere cool). It is your responsibility to provide us with delivery instructions for the courier.  This can be done by populating the  'Delivery Instructions' field at checkout . This information will be entered into the dispatch documents.

We will not accept returns for products that have, for example, been left in a hot letterbox all day, or similar situations beyond our control.

Out of stock products

If you have ordered a product that subsequently becomes unavailable or there is some delay with delivery, your will be contacted via email within 24 hrs with an update and any further information that we have to hand.

If any product in your order goes out of stock we will contact you immediately and advise when that product will be available, or offer a refund if that is your preference.

Damaged in transit

We do all that we can to ensure your goods reach you in perfect condition and we accept responsibility for products damaged in transit. If the order does not reach you in a satisfactory condition, please contact us.

Our policy is to arrange a replacement where possible or issue you with a refund. It is important to retain damaged items and packaging in the same condition as they are received. Please email us a photo if possible. This can assist us in making a claim to the courier. Often the Courier company will wish to uplift the damaged goods from you, as this ends up with the claims dept. 

Lost in transit

We use PBT’s tracked non-signature delivery service for all parcels nationwide, unless you choose otherwise. This service provides a track and trace on PBT tracking service site at

We accept full responsibility for parcels lost in transit by PBT, provided we are notified within 7 days. We will resend your goods at no extra cost, however should the original parcel be eventually delivered it is to be returned to us.

To have your parcel sent with the signature required-service, please select the ‘Signature Required’ option at checkout when placing your order. Also if you have special delivery instructions, please specify them in the 'Delivery Instructions’.

Parcels addressed incorrectly - address labels are automatically generated from your customer file, and any error in the input of your delivery address is your responsibility. We cannot  accept liability for loss of parcels due to customers providing us with an incorrect delivery address.

Faulty products or incorrect products supplied

We endeavour to provide products in perfect condition and accept full responsibility for products received in faulty condition.

Domestic customers - we will provide a free return bag if a return is required due to a product being faulty or as a result of an error made by us (such as an incorrect item being delivered).  Please contact us to arrange this ( link to contact us page)

Change to label or packaging of products

Suppliers frequently update the packaging on the products we stock.  While we endeavour to ensure the product images on our site are current and representative of the stocked item you receive, we do not take responsibility for any packaging updates or changes that are not yet displayed on our website.
