Why do some products ship faster, and some ship slower?

- When the manufacturer has no backorder on the product; meaning no production hold ups from the manufacturer exist, the product will ship as soon as possible.

- Notification: You will be notified via email if there is a delay on your order. Please ensure to check your spam folder (just in case) and also make sure to provide a valid email address

- Only 10% of our orders have a slight backorder, in which we always notify you (the customer) via email within 1-3 business days.

- Organic: Some of the products we sell are USDA organic, and have a limited shelf life. For these product lines we must order in smaller amounts and place orders more frequently to guarantee freshness, which sometimes results in an extra waiting period.

- Post Office Delay: The post office loses the package, delivers to the wrong address, or just takes their time! Currently we have a 98.6% deliverability success rate.

Catastrophes and Weather: In very rare cases such as tropical storms or winter storms, we have seen slight delays in deliverability, usually only 3-5 extra days.

Detailed Shipping Policies:

- Delivery Confirmation Tracking Number: All shipments include a United States Postal Service delivery confirmation tracking number. Tracking numbers are emailed to customers as soon as the order ships from our facility, and also, they can be found in your customer account if you log onto SkinCarebyAlana.com (after the order is shipped).

- Insurance and Signature Confirmations: Customers can request insurance or a signature confirmation at an extra cost; these are not included in our free shipping or priority shipping charge. Please call or email with any requests.

- Please Note: Orders valued above $300 (before any discounts) are automatically upgraded to be shipped requiring a signature confirmation; make sure that you use a valid Unites States Postal Service address where a signature can be attained upon delivery. Skincare by Alana reserves the right to require a signature upon delivery at our discretion in certain instances.

- Wrong Address: It is the customer's responsibility to provide a valid/correct United States Postal Service address for shipping. If the shipment is returned to us, the second shipping attempt will be at the customer's cost. Skin Care by Alana is not responsible for a shipment if you or an authorized person has signed for, and therefore received the shipment.

- Mail Theft: Skin Care By Alana is not responsible for United States Postal Service mail theft. It's the customer's responsiblity to provide a safe/secure United States Postal Service address for shipping

Partial Shipments: 5% or less of our shipments require partial shipping. If you received an order with a red partial stamp on and the order you received was incomplete, you received a partial shipment. This means we shipped you everything we had, and the rest of the products are coming in a separate shipment ASAP. This will not cost the customer any extra shipping cost.

Lost Shipments:

- To reduce the risk of lost or stolen packages customers can request a signature confirmation at an additional cost. Please call us or email us to request this.

- First, please check the tracking information on USPS.com. If your package is tracked as "delivered," check with your neighbors, leasing office, etc.

- Secondly, contact your local United States Post Office and inquire about the shipment. The majority of lost packages are easily recovered simply by performing these first two tasks.

- Unfortunately SkinCarebyAlana.com cannot file a claim on your behalf due to USPS privacy laws.

- If you complete the above two steps and are still unable to locate your package, please email Returns@skincarebyalana.com for more help.

Correcting a Problem with Your Shipping Address

If you place an order and realize at a later time that you need to change the shipping address, please contact us AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. During business hours please call us and after business hours please email us. Please remember that our goal is to send each shipment as soon as possible and unfortunately, we are unable to change an address after a package has been shipped.
