  3. What is Prop 65?

Proposition 65 requires businesses to notify Californians about the levels of chemicals in the products they purchase for their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By providing this information, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about protecting themselves from exposure to these chemicals.

The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) administers the Proposition 65 program. OEHHA, which is part of the California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA), also evaluates all currently available scientific information on substances considered for placement on the Proposition 65 list.

For more information visit: http://oehha.ca.gov/prop65/background/p65plain.html

Please contact the Manufacturer for information regarding the products and ingredients listed under Prop 65.

  3. Why do I have to purchase an ice cooler?

Some products require refrigeration. A cooler and ice pack are needed during shipping to guarantee their integrity. Except for Pure Encapsulation products, you can opt-out from purchasing the cooler and ice pack. Removing those from your order, however, may cause one or more of your items to lose its integrity. By removing the ice cooler and ice pack, you, as our customer, undertake the responsibility for the product’s state upon arrival.

  3. I was placing an order and got a "Merchant Override Decline" error after submitting it.
    What does that mean?

A Merchant Override Decline error means that our credit card processor found an issue with your credit card. The issue could be that the zip code you entered doesn’t match the zip code registered to your credit card, or that the CVV code entered is incorrect. Please revise the full billing address and CVV, and try again.

You could also get a "Credit Floor" error, which means that there are not enough funds in your credit card to cover the purchase.

An error of "Do Not Honor" means that you need to contact your credit card issuer, or you have provided us incorrect credit information.

If you get "Orbital Gateway Error", it means that the billing or shipping address you entered exceeds the character limit accepted by our credit card processor. Please revise the address and try again.

There are several other errors that our credit card processor might display. If you have questions, you can contact our Customer Happiness team by phone at 1.800.383.6008, by email at help@pureformulas.com or by chat, Monday through Friday from 9am to 7pm EST.

  3. Do you ship internationally?

We do ship some of our products internationally by using an independent shipping company, Bongo International. After placing your products in the shopping cart, click on “International Checkout.” If the product is available for international shipping, you will be able to proceed. By following the steps, you should be able to see the shipping cost before placing your order.

In the Billing & Payment tab of our checkout process, we only allow for US based credit cards. Thus, if you want to ship your order within the USA but pay with an international credit card, you would need to place the order using Paypal.

  3. How long will it take for me to receive my package?

This would depend on the shipping method selected. You can see more information on our shipping policies here: https://www.pureformulas.com/shipping-policy.

Note that when we say “Business days,” we mean from Monday to Friday. Take into account that if you place your order before 5pm on a business day, that day is considered a processing day, and usually the order begins transit the next day. If you place your order after 5pm or during a weekend day, the processing day would be the next business day and the shipping day would be the day after.

Orders of over $250.00 must ship UPS. If you decide to change the shipping method, we will require an email from you stating that you forfeit the UPS shipping and that you are responsible for the shipment.
