Ingredients: All products are cruelty-free, and all materials and ingredients are sourced from companies that follow our values. All products have product labels that include all ingredients used for that individual product. All products follow all guidelines that are required by law. It is our responsibility to list all ingredients used. 

Dyes and Color Policy: It is always recommended to use in a clean bathtub. No worries though, if your bathtub does stain, just rinse with warm water and wipe off with washcloths or paper towel *Touching (holding, rubbing, crushing) bath bomb may cause hand staining, but will wash off after a couple of washes. This is due to the very pigmented colors that are used. Dyes and colorants react differently on various types of surfaces so it is your responsibility to test a small amount before use. ALT. Cosmetics is not responsible for any staining that occurs. We encourage you to start with a clean tub before using any of our products.

Processing Times: Processing times can be same day up to 10 business days. Delays may occur especially between Halloween and Christmas. Please be patient with us. Our products are handmade, we use no machines and infuse tonnes of love into every product we make. We keep our most popular items always in stock, but sometimes have to make batches of product which can cause a delay in processing times. If you need your order by a certain date. reach out to us and we will see what we can do! SOAP IS MADE TO ORDER. MAY TAKE LONGER IF YOU ORDER MULTIPLE SOAP PRODUCTS AS WE ONLY HAVE ONE MOLD FOR MOST OF OUR SOAP PRODUCTS. Processing times may increase an additional 10 days.

Shipping: Shipping times depend on where you are located but can take anywhere from 1 day to 2 weeks if international. Shipping, handling, humidity, and temperature can affect the delivery condition of the bath bombs. Products are still usable and it does not affect the overall performance therefore, ALT. Cosmetics does not replace products that have cracks, dents, or dust due to shipping.

Edmonton Local Pick- Ups: We will contact you when your order is ready for pick up. Please schedule a day and time to pick up your order. 

Edmonton Delivery:  We deliver in Edmonton as well as Sherwood Park. Outside of these areas may result in extras fees. Please contact us if you reside outside the listed areas.

We will contact you when your order is scheduled for delivery.

Lost/Stolen Policy: If your package gets lost/stolen please contact the carrier and file a report. Once your package has left our facility and onto the hands of the mail courier, we are not responsible for the condition in which you receive it. We also make sure everything is packaged accordingly to avoid damage during shipping. ALT. Cosmetics is not responsible for lost/stolen packages and will not resend packages for lost or stolen orders. 

Damaged Products: Minor damage or imperfections such as cracking, slight crushing, and small dents may occur during shipment/carrier travel. These minor issues only affect the aesthetic of the item and not the usability and therefore, they will not be eligible for an exchange. Major or severe damage will need to be reviewed to be considered eligible for replacement. You will need to submit a photograph of the product's condition upon arrival within three days of the carrier's confirmed delivery date. Leave the product inside the box and do not open or tamper with the packaging before photographing the damage. 

Return // Exchange // Cancellation: Due to the nature of these products, we do not accept refunds or exchanges. We do not accept cancellation of orders.

Refunds: NO refunds. Orders go into the queue immediately after they are submitted. This requires time and materials, and I CANNOT refund once your order is placed. If you have any doubts, please reconsider. It will save an uncomfortable conversation. 

I PLACED AN ORDER, AND THEN I HAD CAR TROUBLE, MY CAT GOT SICK, I FORGOT I WAS OUT OF LAUNDRY DETERGENT, ETC. WILL YOU REFUND MY MONEY?

I'm sorry, but there are NO REFUNDS after an order is placed. Please refer to the refund section in the policies above.

Additional notes: To get the very best out of your products use within 6 months of purchase. You can save them longer but please note oils may dry after a long period and will be less fragrant.

If you need your order by a certain date (for a birthday, holiday, special event, etc) it is your responsibility to message us or leave a note at check out so we can bump up your order to be sent out at our next available time. 

Additional Notes: The products produced by ALT. Cosmetics are handmade in small batches and there will be some discrepancies with the shade and intensity of color, details/decorations, and strength as well as the scent of fragrance used. Hand-painted details may vary. Bath bombs may or may not float. We try to keep all listings in stock but may have to remake a batch which can cause a delay in our processing times.

ABOUT US

Alternative Cosmetics is a luxury bath and body company that produces high quality bath and skin care products made locally in Edmonton Alberta. 

We’ve always believed in the idea that what we put onto our skin should always be of extremely high quality. As it should be!  Everyone’s face and body are a work of art and we wanted to create magical products that help you get in the mood and go nude.

It's SO important to take even just a few minutes a day to take care of your mental, emotional, and physical health. Whether it's taking a long hot bath, or sparking up that joint after the kids have gone to bed, our goal is to create products that help induce you to crack down and love your soul, body and mind.

Through countless hours of research and experimentation with different formulas, we came across the incredible properties of hemp. Hemp, which is a strain of the Cannabis Sativa plant, has specific natural oils that are not produced by the body, but are fundamental in skin health, helping with aging skin, moderating oil production and keeping the face and body at a perfect moisture.

We pride ourselves in using professional developed recipes containing only skin nourishing goodness. Free from sulphates, parabens and vegan friendly options!

You'll notice every single product that comes into our hands infused with love. We feel it's equally as important for us to work with  and partner with suppliers  and companies who share the same values as we do.

So here we are. Don’t take our word for it, try it yourself. If you love it like we do, tell someone about it. If not, we don’t blame you. Some secrets are best kept for ourselves.

CANNABIS INFUSED BATH BOMBS COMING SOON!
