This website or any portion of this website may not be reproduced, duplicated, copied, sold, resold, visited, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose without our express written consent.

5. Our Contract

No contract exists between you and SSC for the sale of any products until SSC has received and accepted your order and has received payment in full (in cleared funds). Once SSC does so, there is a binding legal contract between us.

When you place an order to purchase a product from SSC, we will send you an acknowledgement of you order via email, which will contain the details of your order.

Acceptance of your order will not take place until after your payment is taken and you receive your acknowledgement of order email. It is at this point that a binding legal contract is created and any such contract is subject to these terms and conditions.

Payment for the products and delivery charges can be made by any method shown on our website at the time you place your order. Payment for the products and delivery charges is taken at the time we receive your order, once we have checked your card details and stock availability. Goods are subject to availability. In the event that we are unable to supply the goods we will inform you of this as soon as possible and a full refund will be issued.

SSC reserve the right to refuse to supply to individuals whose credentials cannot be verified, We will use discretion in these matters and will not authorise payment or supply unless we are completely satisfied that the order is legitimate.

The completion of sale is subject to the customer agreeing to use the product in accordance with manufacturer's guidelines and recommendations. SSC accept no responsibility for products other than supply and delivery to the customer.

All products should be patch tested before complete use to determine suitability. It is then the customer’s responsibility to determine whether a product is suitable for use on their skin. Whilst advice may be given via telephone or email, SSC cannot be held responsible if a product reacts with your skin. In the instance that a reaction occurs, a reaction form must be completed (from SSC and on some occasions the manufacturer), fully and accurately. This will then be sent on to the product manufacturer and the outcome is at the manufacturers discretion.

6. Product Descriptions, Pricing of Products and Promotions

The description and price of the products you order will be as shown on our website at the time you place your order. All prices quoted include VAT at the current rate, where applicable.

Product descriptions on the SSC website are provided by the manufacturers / distributors, but please remember the descriptions relate to individual products and results and reactions on the skin will vary widely depending on other products they are used in conjunction with.

Please also bear in mind any medications including prescription creams, tablets, hormonal body changes and clinic / beauty facials can also affect the results and reactions. It is the customer’s responsibility to patch test any product prior to use, check compatibility of any purchased products with other material facts that can affect results described and SSC cannot take responsibility for any adverse reactions.

The majority of products are in stock, however if due to stock shortage it appears to us that we are unlikely to be able to deliver the products within 5 working days of receipt of your order then we will either contact you within the said 5 working day period to agree a revised date for anticipated delivery of the products or re-credit any sum/s that have been paid by you or debited from your credit card for the products concerned. A confirmation email shall be sent confirming this refund.

Every effort is made to ensure that prices shown on our website are accurate at the time you place your order. If an error is found, SSC will inform you as soon as possible and offer you the option of reconfirming your order at the correct price, or cancelling your order. If SSC does not receive an order confirmation within 14 days of informing you of the error, the order will be cancelled automatically. If you cancel the order, or if the order is cancelled automatically due to the expiry of the 14-day period, SSC will refund or re-credit you for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit/debit card for the products.

Free samples received with your order may vary in brand and quantity depending on current availability.

SSC operate a standard product pricing policy in the UK, Channel Islands and all other countries we ship to, meaning that customers are charged the same prices in GBP irrespective of where they live. SSC do not offer VAT back on any purchases. Product prices are the same across whether purchasing in clinic or through the Internet on our online store.

The currency rates provided by SSC are based on the base currency rate provided by http://www.xe.com. Please note, the purchaser’s bank or credit card provider may charge a different rate to this, however our currency service gives you a guide price.

Due to EU regulations, you may find that the ingredients and/or packaging of certain products differ to products sold outside of the European Union. Product photographs and listed ingredients on our product listings are intended as a guide only.

Any website promotion discount codes can be used on online orders ONLY. They cannot be used on orders placed over the phone, or on products that are call to purchase. The codes cannot be used in conjunction with each other or any other discount / promotional code. Only 1 code can be used per customer whilst the promotion is active. Discount cannot be applied to any orders that do not enter the discount code at checkout or on orders that were placed before the promotion started.
