Exchanges & Returns
At The NATIVES Co. we have chosen the best quality natural products so that you can be confident in your purchase. However, for extra piece of mind we offer an exchange and returns policy under the terms below.
Our policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we are no longer able to offer you a refund or exchange.
If you wish to return an unused item please contact us at [email protected] for return authorisation and details of return shipping.
Proof of purchase is required. All products must be returned in a new and unused state, in perfect condition, with all protective materials and hygiene seals in place. This includes all packaging, accessories and authenticity cards or labelling etc.
We reserve the right not to accept any return if the product shows signs of use or has been tampered or altered from its original condition in any way or, as an alternative, may reduce the amount of any applicable refund or exchange accordingly. You will be informed if we propose to reduce your refund for this reason. In this instance, you may (as an alternative to us providing you with a reduced refund) choose to have the products sent back to you at your own expense.
Our policy does not contravene your rights under Australian Consumer law.
To be eligible for a refund, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. The hygiene seals and original packaging (including any cellophane wrap) must be intact. A refund or store credit equal to the amount paid for the product will be offered at the discretion of The NATIVES Co.. Delivery and return shipping costs are not refundable.

Keep ALL the packaging, including the delivery box/ satchel until we have responded to your email and instructed you that you can dispose of this proof.

Items will not be replaced if only the outer packaging has been damaged in transit.
The NATIVES Co. assumes not liability or responsibility for missing or damaged deliveries. Please see our shipping policy for full details on damaged deliveries and transit insurance.
We have made every effort to display the colors of our products that appear on our website as accurately as possible. We also offer colour descriptions in line with manufactures advice. However, as computer monitors, tablets and mobile devices vary, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of a color will be completely accurate.
Foundation matching Apps – these tools are intended as a guide only. The NATIVES Co assumes no guarantee over the suitability of the recommended products. Purchase of foundation remains at the users discretion and opened product is not refundable. We endeavour where possible (depending on brand and product) to provide you a colour sample when foundation is purchased so you can trial prior to opening your purchase. If you would like further assistance with product choice please book a non-obligation skin consult.
While natural ingredients are great for the skin not all products are perfect for every skin type. The NATIVES Co. cannot be held responsible for individual reactions or irritations from a product. We strongly recommend that you read the ingredients list available on our webpage and the product packaging/leaflet and conduct a patch test, to ensure the ingredients are safe for you. If you are uncertain of any product or its ingredients please contact us at [email protected] before purchase.
The majority of reactions occur within 24 hours of first use.
