Returns & Refunds Policy

Discover the Golden Essence of Health and Wellness. Illuminate Your Natural Beauty with Golden Essence’s Premium Selection!

As our customer base is Australia wide, we use national couriers, such as Australia Post, Couriers Please, Aramex and TNT.  We do not deliver packages ourselves; they are collected by our courier network.

Carriers collect from our location in Brisbane at approximately 11am Brisbane time, Monday to Friday (excluding QLD public holidays).  We process orders based on the time the order is received, and the courier pickup times.  This helps us get as many packages out the door on any given day.

We make all efforts to have orders placed before 10am Brisbane time dispatched same day.  On especially heavy volume days, or after a public holiday, there can be limits to how many orders can be processed within these timeframes, but at of writing our past 12 months stats show that 94% of orders are dispatched within 1 business day.

Shipping Policy

1. Shipping Origin

All orders placed on our website are fulfilled from our warehouse located in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

2. Shipping Coverage

We offer Australia-wide shipping to all regions within the country.

3. Bulky Items

Please note that bulky items, such as 200kg drums or any items requiring pallets or skids, cannot be shipped to residential addresses. Customers must provide a commercial address or specify a local depot that will accept goods on their behalf during the checkout process.

4. Delivery Address

Please ensure that the delivery address you provide during checkout is accurate and complete. We are not responsible for orders delivered to incorrect or incomplete addresses, as we are unable to authorise a courier to change a delivery address once it has left our warehouse.  Any change of delivery address will need to be arranged between the receiver and the courier company.

5. Shipping Carriers

We partner with nationwide general freight carriers that subscribe to e-commerce platforms to ensure reliable and efficient delivery services.

6. Dispatch Rate

Over the past 12 months, our dispatch rate has consistently reached 94% within 24 hours of order confirmation, demonstrating our commitment to swift order processing.

7. Tracking Information

Tracking information for your order is automatically generated by the carrier network and will be sent to you via email once your goods have been collected. This allows you to monitor the status and progress of your shipment.

8. Missed Deliveries

If you are not available to receive your delivery when it arrives, the courier company will typically leave a card with instructions on how to arrange a re-delivery or pick up your package from a local depot. To ensure smooth and fast receipt of your goods, we recommend following these instructions promptly to ensure successful delivery.

  • To be eligible for a refund or replacement, the items must be in unused and original condition.
