News

We have been experiencing a disrupted ferry service schedule this week that will continue for another week at a minimum. The effect of this change in scheduling is that some UPS shipments may be 1 day longer to be delivered than usual. This especially affects expedited services like UPS Next Day, 2nd Day and 3 Day Select. This is a situation beyond UPS' control and they will NOT honor refunds for late delivery caused by the ferry service delays. We apologize for this inconvenience beyond our control.

Our Customers Say...
Lotioncrafter is my favorite company. Their shipping is fast and customer service is top notch. I recommend Lotioncrafter to any and all my friends.
Irena, (Gingers Garden)

I just love Lotioncrafter ...they ALWAYS ship your order out immediately without an extra charge like some companies & I once ordered the wrong item & noticed within couple hours they corrected my mistake right away and most other suppliers will not do that. Honestly my favorite supplier. I only go elsewhere if it's something they don't carry (micas,oxides ect..) several times over the past year and half I've been ordering & they are super reliable
Thank you
