Our Policies

Ordering Retail & Wholesale

Orders are taken online through our website ONLY.
No orders will be accepted via email, SMS or over the phone.


Payments must be made at time of online purchase. PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover or Afterpay are accepted.


We DO NOT give credit. We do however offer Afterpay.
Afterpay is a digital service that makes it possible to buy something now and pay it off in fortnightly installments. Unlike lay-by, you will get the product right away, whether you're shopping online or in-store.

Wholesale ordering

Our system offers you wholesale rates  automatically if you are an approved shop or accommodation owner and have met the minimum criteria.
It is important before  completing your order to make sure your discounts have been applied before paying for your order. If they are not then you will be charged retail rates. Refunds will not be given due to incorrect orders but we can give you a store credit. Please make sure your order is correct and your discount has automatically applied before completing your order to avoid this issue. If for some reason your order has not had its wholesale rate applied and you have met the minimum order criteria please contact us so we can manually apply it BEFORE YOU PAY .

If we do issue a refund for the incorrect order  we take no responsibility for the time banks or Afterpay, Paypal or shopify take to process a refund. Please make sure your order is correct before completing your order.

Wholesale Minimums

Minimum order for wholesale customers is $250 first purchase, $150 minimum thereafter.
We do not accept businesses that sell online only or on ebay etc, you must be an owner of a shop, lodge, airbnb or Motel.


  • Shops $150 minimum per wholesale order ($250 first order)
  • Accommodation $100 minimum (guest soaps)

Wholesale Exclusivity in your location

We can offer you exclusivity in your town or location, but you must be ordering a minimum of
$5000 of wholesale product per month to retain exclusivity. We reserve the right to change this at any time.

Why do we have a minimum wholesale spend?

We offer great discounts to our wholesale clients and the only way we can maintain this low pricing. We value all of our wholesale clients and have worked hard to keep minimums as low as possible within the current price structure. We also care how products look on your shelf. You will have noticed that customers tend to purchase more from fully stocked ranges and sales diminish when stocks are low or not enough variety of product.
