All orders must be paid in full prior to the shipping date.

PRICE
The wholesale price is set in advance, and the retail price suggested is an indicative price based on our own retail website. While this is not mandatory, we kindly ask our stockists, whenever possible, not to sell our products below the recommended price. However, feel free to offer bundles or occasional discounts.


STOCK AVAILABILITY

All of our products are handmade by us in small batches. Therefore, while we aim to ship all orders as soon as possible, it can sometimes take up to 8 weeks if one or more products are out of stock.
Upon confirming your order we will inform you of the expected shipping date and of any product that may not be available at the time. Placing your orders in advance will allow us to plan our production ahead and keep a constant supply flow.


SHIPPING
We ship orders with tracked services. The shipping rate depends on the weight of the parcel and the destination. We will calculate the total for you once we’ve received your order.
The products supplied by Chalke Valley Soaps are delivered at the risk of Chalke Valley Soaps unless a customer stipulates a special method of delivery. However, liability for the loss of the delivery shall be limited to the replacement of the products, or to a full refund of the invoice value.


DAMAGED GOODS
Should you receive damaged goods please notify us via email within 48 hours. Please include images. All such products will be replaced – according to availability – or they will be refunded. We will cover shipping expenses for any damaged products.


SHELF LIFE
We produce all-natural products without adding any preservatives so we recommend using our products within 6 months of purchase. However, our handmade soaps will last even longer, but the natural scents of the essential oils may fade with time. You can prevent this by keeping them in airtight, non-metal containers.


STORAGE
Our products must be kept in a cool and dry environment. Damp and warm conditions can damage handmade soaps. We recommend keeping any off-shelf stock in airtight containers lined with parchment paper. To provide the best storage conditions, we recommend adding a couple of bags of Silica Gel to each container. All variants should be stored in separate containers. These BPA free containers are perfect, they are great quality, stackable, food-safe, non-toxic and there are many size options available. 
 

DISPLAY
We offer Chalke Valley Soaps branded wooden displays in different sizes. The price is starting at £20 for a standard size 6 section stand. We offer one standard size display as a gift with first wholesale orders that are £500 or over. Larger displays available on request.
Please note: handmade soaps made with essential oils must be not in contact with any metal surfaces (eg. metal shelves, trays, etc).


DISTRIBUTORS
Please note that at this time Chalke Valley Soaps is the only approved B2B distributor of Chalke Valley Soaps products.


EXCLUSIVITY
We offer exclusivity for our 'brick-and-mortar' stockists simply based on postcodes and distances. If a postcode covers a large area, we check if the distance is not less than 20 miles based on Google maps. 
To protect exclusivity in your area, we only require to place an order 3 times a year.
