I received an email notifying me of additional charges for shipping delivery, why is that so?
Additional shipping charges apply when purchase is made for delivery to an overseas destination, namely any other country outside of Singapore. Shipping charges differ between countries and are determined by parcel weight and parcel size. Upon confirmation of your order, our logistics team tabulates the additional shipping charges incurred and will email you a separate invoice for additional payment before your parcel is released for shipping.
I would like to drop by your office to understand your products better, can I make a direct purchase at the same time?
Yes, you may make a direct purchase at our office. However, kindly be informed that cash transactions are not allowed and the only mode of payment accepted will be Paypal.
Are the prices on your website in USD?
No. Prices stated on the website are all in Singapore Dollars (SGD) Currency and not to be mistaken with any other currencies.
I received an email stating that my order is complete. Does that mean that my parcel is ready for collection/ delivery?
The first email you receive upon making a purchase is a confirmation email for your orders. You should receive a second email when your parcel is ready for collection or enroute to you. Receiving the second email also does not mean that the parcel has already been delivered.
PRODUCTS RELATED ISSUES
Can I request for products with longer expiry dates?
You may submit a request for products with longer expiry dates in your delivery should you have purchased more than one piece of the same item. However, we regret to inform all customers that our logistics team abide by a strict first-in first-out policy where products with nearer expiry dates have to be dispensed out of the system before products of later expiry dates are used. During high peak sales period, we will also be unable to accommodate to such requests.
How will I know the expiry dates of the products which I purchased?
Expiry dates are stated on the individual product listing pages. We seek the kind understanding of all customers to be agreeable to the expiry dates indicated on the individual product listing pages. CNP Cosmetics Singapore Pte Ltd aspires to be an all-rounder sustainable, eco-friendly business that takes into the consideration of minimizing product waste. Hence, a strict First-In First-Out (FIFO) distribution procedure takes place within our warehouse.
I received a product and find that it’s not suitable for me, can I request for a refund?
All products come with a quality assurance security seal that determines product authenticity and product freshness. In the event where goods sold are returned with security seal tampered with, or damaged, we regret to inform that they are deemed non-refundable or exchangeable. Purchased products are only eligible for one-for-one exchange for product-to-product under case-by-case scenarios such as skin allergies in the form of rashes, swelling, or severe itching, as well as during the event of damaged goods.
How do I proceed with damaged goods return?
Damaged goods received in a recent delivery are applicable for one-for-one exchange. We seek the customer’s kind cooperation to first submit a feedback via email@example.com indicating their order number, name of product affected, as well as a photo attachment of the damaged item. Our team will then respond accordingly and provide the steps needed for item exchange.
I received an item that looks like it has lesser contents than my usual purchases, what should I do?
As certain products have thicker viscosity in texture, the liquid contents take time to settle and may appear half-full when first placed in an upright position. Customers are best advised to place products in an upright position overnight first to determine if the volume of contents is inaccurate to its standard packaging capacity. We then seek the customer’s kind cooperation to first submit a feedback via firstname.lastname@example.org indicating their order number, name of product affected, as well as a photo attachment of the product affected. Our team will then respond accordingly and provide the steps needed for item exchange.
Can I store my products in the fridge?
Customers are advised to store products in a cool, dry environment. Products should not be stored under extreme temperature conditions such as high heat exceeding 40 degrees Celsius or low heat under 10 degrees Celsius. Kindly take note that ampule mist products are also not suitable for undergoing high pressures and should not be checked into the luggage when travelling.
I noticed your products retailing at other online shopping platforms, are they authentic?

Are the products tested on animals?

Are the products safe for pregnant women?
Customers are strongly recommended to discuss safe skincare options for you during your pregnancy with your medical professional for the best advice. It is best advised to avoid the sun and use UV protection products that help inhibit melanin production as the hormones released during pregnancy and nursing can greatly increase the productivity of pigmentation in the skin, resulting in melasma or “mask of pregnancy”. Products containing Alphahydroxy Acids (AHA) and Betahydroxy Acids (BHA) such as Lactic Acids, Glycolic Acids, Salicylic Acids, etc should be avoided.
What are the delivery methods for my purchases?
A third-party courier service, Urban Fox, is engaged for all parcel deliveries under CNP Laboratory and is responsible for ensuring all parcels reach your doorstep safely. For more information on Urban Fox, visit: https://www.urbanfox.asia/
I just made my purchase yesterday, why is my parcel not here yet?
Order processing takes a minimum 1 – 3 working days to fulfil from the date of purchase. Should you have made a purchase on a Friday evening, the order will only begin processing on the Monday morning of the following week. Parcel pickup from the third-party courier service then occurs on the following working day and takes a further 1 – 3 working days to reach you. Hence, should you have made your purchase on a Friday evening, you should expect to receive your parcel on the Friday of the following week. In the event of high sales volume during a peak period such as our annual Black Friday Sales, parcel processing alone will be extended up to 7 working days and deliveries require a further extension of another 7 working days to accomplish. Hence, during high peak periods, parcels are expected to be delayed in delivery and may take up to 14 working days before receipt on customer end. Customers should avoid purchasing products as gifts during high peak sales periods.
Can I avoid shipping charges and opt for self-collection of my purchase?
We regret to inform that self-collection options are no longer available. Our warehouse has shifted to a different location and it will be inconvenient to extend self-collection for our beloved customers. CNP Cosmetics Singapore Pte Ltd also does not make a single profit from the SGD $5 delivery charges. All shipping fees collected from our customers are fully paid to the third-party courier service provider.
How do I track my order?
