Terms and Conditions

Welcome

And thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with you! I’m so excited to help you on your skincare journey. This guide details our process and terms and conditions. Please read me before our project commences, and don’t hesitate to get in contact via email if you have any questions.

Business Hours

We operate Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm.   We are closed on Australian and Queensland public holidays.

Communication

Email is our preferred choice of communication. Phone calls are for urgent matters only. This allows us to focus and give our complete attention to your project and other client orders. Taking phone calls throughout the day takes us away from production and therefore slows down our turnaround time for all. The quickest way to get a response is via email. Emails are checked regularly throughout the day and are responded to promptly.

Meetings

We are unable to offer face to face meetings. We are a family run boutique manufacturer and are extremely busy looking after 300 brands and counting. If we were to meet with all our brand owners as well as potential brand owners, we would never have any time to actually make the products 😊 We understand this is how some people like or even need to do business and we can completely understand, however this is not an available option if you wish to go ahead with our company.

Showroom

We no longer have our showroom, we are strictly an e-commerce-based business and everything is done online. This allows us to keep our pricing down and allows our business to run more efficiently. Due to our privacy and confidentially practises we don’t offer warehouse viewings as we are always working on numerous orders for our brands, most of which have confidentiality contracts in place.

Location

Our head office and lab are located on the Gold Coast Hinterland, Queensland. Our lab follows strict GMP guidelines and our products are all made on site at our facility.

Production Capabilities

We have a maximum production limit of 1000 units (Less for some SKU’s). We are a boutique manufacturer and most of our products are either hand poured or manually filled. We have chosen this method, to allow us to make fresh batches every week. This method allows our clients to have a fresh product every single time with a full shelf life. Due to the natural preservation systems we implement here at Private Label Skin Care, we have a limited shelf life of 12-18 months, therefore we don’t want stock sitting at our facility ageing. Most larger private label manufacturers use a high percentage of synthetic based preservatives, with the main goal of making their products last for 3 - 5 years. This way they can make up a large batch with their machinery and can let it sit in the warehouse for 6 months or more before it needs to be sold.

This method not only decreases the percentage of actives in the product, the actives that are in there are losing potency every day and are not as effective as they should be. As we don’t use the same large automatic filing machines that the bigger manufacturing companies use, we don’t offer runs of more than 1000 units due to the high level of labour and time involved.

International Orders

Private Label Skin Care can export our products to the following destinations

  • United States
  • Canada
  • Hong Kong
  • United Kingdom

When ordering from Private Label Skin Care Pty Ltd, the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be paid by the recipient as we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country. Orders shipped to countries outside of Australia may be subject to import taxes and customs duties levied by the destination country once a shipment enters the country. If you do get charged, the carrier will expect payment at the time of delivery.

MSDS are needed for shipping products into certain countries.

Please note that we do not help complete any other paperwork or documents on your behalf that you may require to export your products into certain countries.

Please make sure you understand the above before starting with Private Label Skin Care Pty Ltd.
