The most challenging part of mail order service for a small business is shipping and associated costs. Effective January 23, 2023 the USPS has discontinued the Regional Rate boxes A & B. This has a substantial impact on our small business because we used these boxes (and reduced rates) almost exclusively. The Holiday, 2022 "temporary" rate increase is also now permanent.
In our modern economy, many large online retailers are able to offer free shipping made possible only by very large volume. We use the most efficient methods and available box sizes, and charge actual shipping rates to your zip code.
For orders less than $ 100.00 (other than NY State), actual shipping rates will apply.
Shipping within New York State for orders of
$ 50.00 + and less than $ 100.00 is now a flat rate of $ 8.00 per address. This results in savings for you of up to 40% of the actual charge depending on weight.
Actual USPS shipping rate examples (outside of our $ 100.00+ free shipping anywhere and
$ 50.00+ flat rate for NY) :
There are now two main USPS regular Priority Mail box sizes available: 7x7x7 and 12x12x12. Also, for non-glass jar orders, the garment shaped boxes. The intermediate Regional Rate Box sizes may be used until our stock is depleted (at regular Priority rates).
Up to 3 lbs within our northeast zone Via USPS Priority Mail = $ 11.35. Up to 6 lbs = $ 13.45.
Rates for middle of US zones will differ.
Up to 1 lb to west coast = $ 12.55. Up to 2 lbs =
$ 17.05. For orders over 2 lbs, Medium Flat Rate box $ 17.10 (the most viable rate for most orders over 1 lb that fit in this box).
6 bars of soap to anywhere in US via USPS Small Flat Rate Box = $10.20
There are three USPS Flat Rate Box (anywhere in US) sizes:
USPS Small Flat Rate Box is now $ 10.20
USPS Medium Flat Rate Box is now $17.10

Weather & shipping advice:
*** Orders placed during very cold (or hot) periods may be held by us briefly (a day or two) if temps are under 0 degrees or over 85 degrees. This is because we do not use chemical stabilizers or UV inhibitors and most major shippers do not have climate control.***
Tracking info will accompany all orders, so please check to ensure that your emulsions are not exposed to long periods of extreme temperatures.
We formulate for safety and stability (without extra chemicals).
