Returns & Refunds Policy

Thanks for visiting our website. Skin Friend supplies quality products that are made within Australia to strict Australian standards. We are here to help and we listen to our customers. 

  • Please note our Skin Friend supplements and books supply nutritional support for skin health and should be used in conjunction with advice from your health care practitioner.
  • We do not claim our products cure eczema or any other disease or disorder. We provide nutritional support and feel we provide this in a caring, well researched and supportive way.
  • Karen Fischer has spent more than 15 years developing these products and they are gentle and well tolerated. Adverse reactions to our supplements are very rare. If this occurs, please reduce your dose to half a scoop per day (or a tiny pinch for children) and take it when you are relaxed and happy. Laughing helps to switch off the stress response in people with skin inflammation. 
  • People with skin inflammation often have allergies and intolerance so please check the product ingredients before purchase (refer to the tabs on the purchase pages). Once you have received the product, we do not offer a refund for change of mind if you did not check the ingredients before purchase. 

To request your return or exchange, please email us at with your order number. We will advise if you need to return the product to us. Just in case, please keep your original packaging (mailing box).
