Many customers want to know why they can't get a refund on a product that they have opened but not used and wish to return to us. The reason is that we can no longer guarantee the quality of the product once you have opened it and so we cannot sell it to someone else. If you are unsure that you are going to like the smell or consistency of a product, we suggest that you buy a small quantity first to test it. Due to the time and high expense involved, we regret that we cannot send samples.
