I was really excited to try this shop. Unfortunately, the shop keeper had poor communication with me. I ordered my product on 5/9 and sent a message asking when it would be shipped on 5/13. I was in no particular hurry but I did want a rough idea. She told me it was being shipped that day and that I should receive it on 5/16. On 5/16, it still was only showing as paid. So I sent another message politely asking when it would be shipped. I received no response. So today, 5/17- I asked for clarification about my order and let the shop owner know that if it was not going to be received then I would contact my bank for a chargeback. Apparently, this highly offended her and she canceled my order and sent me a very unprofessional message. Wow- I will happily spend my money at a shop that is timely, polite and willing to communicate

Here is my 'rude" response: Hi Jamie: I replied to your message date yesterday. You ordered 2 of the Watermelon Sugar Scrub bars, and I had to wait until the new batch was ready. Also, I wanted to include a free bottle of the new matching Watermelon Body Cream, which hasn't been premiered yet. However, your scheduled ship date wasn't until yesterday, May 16, 2016. It has only been 1 week since you placed your order, and you did not request expedited shipping or pay for expedited shipping, so for your to threaten to contact your bank for a chargeback is very disheartening. I will gladly cancel your order for you, and give you a full refund." WOW, how rude I was to send you free additional product. Not all money is good money. Thank you for shopping elsewhere.

What I won't tolerate is lies and dishonesty. You placed your order on the 9th, yes, your scheduled ship date which you were provided was Monday, May 16, 2016. You did not request or pay for expedited shipping. You sent a message threatening to do a chargeback, and that you would tell the credit card company you "never received your order", even though it has only been 1 week, and your ship date had not even passed. I DO NOT TOLERATE THREATS TO DO SOMETHING SO DISHONEST! So, YES, I cancelled your order, and politely told you, that since you were threatening to do a chargeback, that would not be necessary, and instead, I would gladly issue you a full refund, which I did.

About

From Thank-You's to Must Have's!

Working as a professional makeup artist has put me in contact with a lot of amazing people. I have traveled all over the world, and everywhere I went, I studied what natural resources each country had to offer in terms of skin care and beauty.

At the end of every photo or video shoot, I would leave little "thank you" gifts to my clients for hiring me. After a while, clients started requesting certain items they had been gifted, which were their new "must have" candles, soaps and lotions, and then one client in particular insisted that I start selling my creations. Shortly after that, I relocated cross country to Los Angeles, where I began selling my products at various outdoor markets and events.

Soon, I found myself not only selling my products, but designing product lines for other "Celebrity" owned beauty companies, landing high end product lines in stores like Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus Japan. It was fun for a while, but once a line takes off, small companies like mine are traded in for overseas mass production, & the quality & purity of the creation is lost. "Organic" gets put on the label, but only about 2% of the ingredients truly are. Pure high quality organic oils are traded in for cheaper oils and synthetics, as well as cheaper manufacturing methods.

You see, my great-grandmother trained me in what I do, and truly believed I could make it into something great. She was an amazing woman and herbalist. I still use many of the same methods and techniques that she taught me. My effort in creating each of my products cannot be duplicated on a mass level, and I soon realized that while I enjoyed the money, I missed meeting my end-user customers at shows, getting their feedback and opinions. More importantly, I refuse to compromise the integrity of my products for a buck.

So I went back to my small workshop, and I went back to my markets and art shows. I discovered Etsy and the world of new customers it opens a small company up to. Now, I continue to create my products my way, and I haven't looked back since.

Welcome to Badan Body Alchemy. In April of 2014, I celebrated 26 years in business, producing the highest quality vegan & organic body care.

Using organic shea butter, jojoba and rice oils as my main ingredients, for over 26 YEARS I have formulated & handmade luxurious bodycare products especially for sensitive skin like mine. I spent most of my life studying alchemy, aromatherapy and natural healing, and I use the same age old processes my great great great grandmother used, to produce my soaps and other products now, which is what makes them so creamy, rich and gentle.

I didn't always know this was my path, despite being lucky enough to have been taught and trained by the best (in my opinion since she was my great grand mother). I have extremely sensititve skin, and In highschool, right around the time my great grandmothers health began to fail, I started experimenting with using
"cool" commercial products that my fellow highscool friends were using. The result, I developed rosacea...bad! My skin literally felt like it was on fire! I decided then that I would carry on the tradition of creating products that everyone can use safely and without any negative reaction, which is what separates me from other companies.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Other Method
Payment
For payment, I accept PayPal and Money Orders. All payments must be received within 3 days of order placement, however I do understand that things happen, so just convo me if you have a problem paying within that time.

All order shipped within the State of California are unfortunately subject to sales tax of 9.75%, its the Law and I have to do it.

Custom orders must be prepaid before manufacturing will begin, and require a turnaround time of 2-3 weeks.
Shipping
Please remember, it is much cheaper to send multiple items than individual items.

I ship using USPS First Class for items that weigh under 15.9oz. USPS Priority Mail is available for orders over 15.9oz for your convenience. At times I will use FedEx Ground if it will be cheaper for you, unless you prefer Priority Mail (which many people do).

Orders are shipped as soon as possible in the order received. While I try to get orders out within 48 hours, I do request 5 days just to be safe. Custom orders, especially those that require a custom fragrance blend require a 6-8 week window to allow me the proper amount of time needed to test each custom blend in the final product.

Insurance is extra and must be paid by the customer, so please convo me if you would like to have your package insured, and I will let you know exactly how much it will be to do so.

If you need your order by a specific date, please let me know in the comment section, so that I can confirm that your due date can be met.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
International orders will be processed in the same time frame as domestic orders, however, it is up to the Post Office as to how long delivery takes. Also, please inform me of any special instructions or packaging needs, if you know of any, to your country.
Refunds and Exchanges
Any damages or concerns must be reported to me within 48 hours of receipt of product. If your shipment arrives damaged, you must contact the shipping company immediately and file a claim with, either US Postal Service, or FedEx Ground.

However, if you simply want to change scents, then you will have to pay the additional shipping costs to send another product, and return shipping costs to send the original item back to me. Of course, if it is a problem on our behalf we will pay all shipping costs.
Additional policies and FAQs
Any questions? Please feel free to convo me! I will respond within 24 hours, unless it is the weekend. All emails received Saturday and Sunday will be responded to on Monday morning.
