Terms & Conditions
PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS WEBSITE.
We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties
All users of this site agree that access to and use of this site are subject to the following terms and conditions and other applicable law. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, please do not use this site.
Please ensure that you place your order on the appropriate web site. If we do not have a specific web site for the country where you live then please place your order on the UK web site.
PLEASE NOTE that all prices shown on this web site are in US dollars. All orders placed on this web site will be processed in US dollars. Skin Culture Inc. will not be liable for any additional charges incurred by use of credit cards or any duties or custom charges applied.
Delivery Schedule USA orders are normally delivered to your doorstep within 10-15 working days. International orders are usually delivered within 20 working days.
All of our items are shipped from our head office in the UK.
We anticipate delivery to be within 10 business days from date of shipping, depending upon where you are based in the world. While the majority of customers will receive their orders in around 7 - 10 business days from date of shipping there are cases where orders may be delayed by the postal system which are beyond our control.
If your order does not arrive within 10 business days of dispatch, please do not worry - it is very likely that it will arrive very soon. In line with our courier's guidelines, we will not consider a package lost until 25 working days have passed. This is because the vast majority of packages will be delivered or returned to us as 'undeliverable' within this time.
If after 25 business days your order has still not arrived, please contact us via our help and information pages on the website to arrange a free replacement.
Our Peel 4000 can bring about a noticeable improvement to the appearance of your skin. While we cannot guarantee that one full skin peel kit will totally clear the problem you are trying to treat, we will guarantee that you should see an improvement to the look and feel of your skin after your first Peel 4000.
Our Skin Peel 4000 (including the Peel 4000 contained within the Peel Facial Systems) is backed by the following 45 day Guarantee:
Just try the Peel 4000 within 45 days. If you are not totally satisfied with the results, simply return the item - even if it is empty - for a refund (less shipping and handling). That is 45 days to try them, with results guaranteed or your money back.
* Our money back guarantee is good on first time purchases only within 45 days from date of the order. Guarantee applies to Peel 4000 and does not include Aftercare Kits and Aftercare products.
** If you received free promotional products as part of your purchase (e.g. buy one get one free promotions) then the free product must be returned unused and unopened with the treatment for which you are requesting a refund. If the product has been opened or used then the prevailing cost of this product may be deducted from the total value of your refund.
