Returns & Exchanges

Can I return my products?

At the end of the day, products should do what they say they will do. We stand behind our products and we have a 60 day product pledge.

No results in 60 days?

No hassles.
No hard feelings.
Just an exchange or your money back when you bring in your receipt.

We love our products and we think you will too! BUT, if you are unhappy with the way your skin looks or feels any time within 60 days of your purchase, we will replace your products or refund your money (excluding shipping charges) – with a skoah smile. All you need to do is ship back the unused portion of the product, with proof of purchase or return through one of our stores.

For a return or exchange, the product must be at least 80% unused. All sale products, promotional products or chiiki munki make up products are final sale and may not be returned.

Yikes! I received the wrong product(s)!

Sorry about that! Please contact orders@skoah.com or 1 888 697 5624 and we’ll sort it out!

 


 

Products

What’s in your products?

skoah products blend the best of science and nature. We believe a skin care product must do what it says it will do. Our product line was created by listening to our customers, skin care trainers and coaches. The line grew from 5 products in 2002 to over 60 skin care products and growing. We’ve also created our own blend of 11 different plant extracts to calm and soothe the skin and to fight free radicals. We include this in almost every skoah product. Instead of inexpensive, heavy mineral oils, we use high-quality, highly-refined lipids and oils such as olive oil, shea butter and coconut oils. We also use sulphate-free cleansers in our face, body, and hair products. Finally, we preserve our products using paraben-free preservatives in minimal amounts – enough to keep your product safe, but without harming you.

Why are skoah product ingredient lists so long? Aren’t I supposed to use products with ingredients that I can pronounce?

skoah adheres to the stringent regulations implemented by Canadian authorities. This means that product ingredient lists must be written out using the full chemical name for each ingredient. This is called INCI (International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients). So, long ingredient lists generally mean that the cosmetic company is using approved formulas and is following these guidelines.

As a simple example, vitamin e must be written as disodium lauriminodipropionate tocopheryl phosphates… sounds long and scary, but natural and safe. Another example: propylene glycol alginate. Translation: sea kelp algae.

We feel that properly listing ingredients is our responsibility. We also feel that companies that don’t list products this way may be omitting some of their ingredients or could be in noncompliance. All product ingredient lists must be approved by Canadian authorities to be safe and only those listed according to INCI guidelines are approved.

Do you test on animals?

Never. In fact, testing on animals is not allowed in Canada. So, while we would never do this anyways, you can rest assured most people agree this is wrong!

I see propylene glycol in some products – isn’t that antifreeze?

No, it is not antifreeze. Consider the word ‘oil’. In a salad you may choose pure virgin olive oil. In your car you would use crude oil or petroleum based oil. Clearly not the same source or the same oil, but both called oil.

We must, according to INCI guidelines list our plant based vegetable glycerin as propylene glycol. In past years we called it vegetable glycerine. Now it must be listed as propylene glycol.

My skin is sensitive, will I react to skoah products?

You might, but most people who have sensitive skin have great success with our products because of the quality of our ingredients and because we use minimal amounts of irritants such as inexpensive fragrances, essential oils and alcohol. Of course you may have an allergy to one of our ingredients, but we try and use different ingredients in the same product category in order to offer options for people. We also have a 60 day product pledge to help you.

Where are skoah products made?

Vancouver, Canada

Why is a toner important?

A toner has a few different purposes. The first reason is to balance your skin’s pH level. Water will unbalance your pH.

If your skin is acidic, you will likely experience flakiness. If it is alkaline you may have breakouts.

We also have a toner that helps control oil production called turbo tonik, and another that exfoliates your skin called glow tonik.

Do you have fragrance-free products?

kontrol serum, kream kleanser, supreme kream and skin quench serum are all fragrance free

Our other products contain either essential oils or high quality fragrance oils. In general, irritation due to fragrance is often due to poor quality fragrances, or high concentrations of fragrance in the product. skoah uses a very minimal amount in order to add to the product experience but not cause irritation.
