You cannot return an item if:

- The goods are non-returnable for hygiene reasons.
You can return an item if:
- It has not been opened or used.
- It is in perfect resalable condition.

Please note: If you believe you have a product with a faulty pump, please contact us on 0330 111 8574 or [email protected] before returning an item. In many cases, it will just be an airlock in the bottle, and we can explain how to release this and get the pump working as normal.

Without an accompanying Returns Form, your product would be unidentifiable to our team. In this event, we cannot process any refunds or replacements.
STANDARD RETURNS TERMS AND INFORMATION
If a purchased product has been used or opened (hologram no longer intact, manufacturer / factory seal no longer in place or packaging damaged), then it will not be eligible for a return, refund or exchange.
If an item(s) is returned to us and it has been used / opened / is not in a resalable condition or does not pass the UV light checking process, the customer will be contacted and informed. The customer can then determine whether they would wish for us to dispose of the item(s) or whether they wish, at their own cost, to have the item(s) returned to them. No refund will be given for items returned that are not in a resalable condition.
Returns postage is at your own cost and risk. We would recommend that you return your items via a tracked delivery service. Please clearly state on the returns form the reason for the return and whether you require a refund or exchange. Please put a contact number on your returns form should you require an exchange. We will not be liable for any packages that are not received by us.
If a pre-paid returns form has been issued, please ensure you keep a copy of this until your return has been processed. If proof of postage of a return is requested, please ensure all details are sent through including postage date and time.
Any delivery charges paid for on an initial order are not eligible for a refund.
Once a refund has been issued you will receive a confirmation email detailing the amount that has been refunded, and the item(s) that we have received back.
Refunds can only be made to the billing details provided when ordering.
We aim to process all returns as quickly as possible and you should receive confirmation of this within a week of having returned the item.
If you exercise your right of cancellation after 14 days of receipt of the order, any returned goods must be in perfect resalable condition (inner and outer packaging fully intact) and are subject to a 25% re-stocking charge.
All orders are processed in GBP (Great British Pounds) and refunds will be made in GBP. Medica Forte cannot be held responsible for any exchange rate charges on foreign orders at the point of processing a refund. This is the responsibility of your bank or credit card processing company.

Please note, in order to investigate any claims of faulty or damaged products, we will require the product and related packaging to be returned to Medica Forte.

If a return / refund / replacement / exchange is required due to a reaction, Medica Forte will provide full details on what to do during email correspondence.
REFUSED / UNDELIVERABLE PACKAGES
In the case of a parcel being returned to Medica Forte due to an incorrect delivery address being provided or the customer not collecting from their postal office / depot, a re-delivery cost will be charged. The costs for this are as follows; £2.99 for UK delivery, £7.99 for European delivery (within the EU), £9.99 for Worldwide delivery or £29.99 for Express Delivery. Customers will be contacted via email should a parcel be returned to us.
If the customer chooses to cancel the order in this instance instead of re-posting, the original postage and packaging cost covered by Medica Forte will not be refunded (as per the costs above) and a processing fee of £10 will be charged.
