We do not allow out of stock items to be ordered, however, we do allow Backordered items to be ordered. Items are considered out of stock if they cannot ship within thirty (30) days as opposed to Backordered items which are items that are out of stock that can ship within thirty (30) days.

12) Do any of your products contain sunscreens (SPF)?
We formulated our products without chemical sunscreens to prevent interaction with a person’s preferred daily moisturizer.
13) Why do some products include Parabens?
We strive to ensure that our products present no health risks from contamination from potentially harmful microorganisms by using preservatives such as parabens. It is important to use preservatives to prevent bacterial and fungal contamination. With the high level of natural ingredients in our formulations, the absence of preservatives would require our products to be refrigerated and would need to be used within approximately two weeks after production which would make manufacture, storage and delivery to the customer virtually impossible, therefore, we use parabens. Parabens have been used for over 70 years and are approved by the USFDA for use in a wide variety of consumer products, including foods and beverages. Parabens provide a critical role in frontline defense for preventing disease and infection in humans by preventing fungal and bacterial contamination. Parabens are recognized as safe by the World Health Organization as well as government agencies around the world. In the United States, the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR), an expert panel (an independent body of internationally recognized medical and scientific experts in safety evaluation), has reviewed parabens and concluded that they are safe for use in cosmetic products. And, all of our products are allergy and dermatologist tested.
