What precautions are you taking amidst COVID-19?
We are committed to creating economic opportunity and financial inclusion for underserved artisans and their families in East Africa through the production of sustainable botanicals at the highest quality. As a decentralized production model, we are primed to logistically handle these moments with adaptability and consideration. 

As a company, we are taking the following measures and protocols: 

Our Field Team will continue to work in the field with limited movement to reduce exposure. Our Social Responsibility team is working on sending out updates and health information to our artisans so that our entire community stays informed and safe.

Our U.S team is working completely from home, and is under self-quarantine whenever possible. 

Most of our global staff are currently working from home, and those that cannot (due to the nature of their roles) will be working on site but will be spread out sufficiently enough to maintain social distancing requirements. We have increased cleaning and sanitization of the office to reduce the possibility of infection. All people handling the products are wearing gloves.

Please visit our Returns page to begin the process or send us a quick message at info@inuanaturals.com. When exchanging an item, we can only provide an exchange for the same item. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. 

When will I receive my refund?
We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us at info@inuanaturals.com at any time if you are unhappy with your order. In most cases, returns are processed as store-credit or exchange due to the nature of our botanicals. In rare cases, we may accommodate refunds if product is returned due to an allergic reaction or damage/defect. In order to receive store-credit/refund, please reach out to us within 15 days of purchase and send the product back to us within 10 days of reaching out. There must be 50% or more of the product left in the bottle/jar in order to qualify.

If a product arrives broken or damaged, we are happy to send a replacement. However, a photograph as proof of the damage/defect is required.

Please note: We will not be able to refund the shipping cost as it is directly paid to our providers. For international orders, if your package is unclaimed and is returned back to us, we may refund the amount of the products but the shipping cost will not be refunded. We will also not be able to refund purchases that were made from our stockists, but may qualify for store-credit with proof of purchase. 

Inua Naturals is not responsible for any additional shipping costs for returns, and we do not assume responsibility for reimbursement or compensation of returned packages lost in transit without proof of delivery to Inua Naturals.

Why was my credit card declined?
This is a rare and unfortunate scenario and we apologize for that. However, your card may have been rejected due to a mismatch of the billing address entered that may not match the address your bank has on file. We advise that you double check the details before purchasing to avoid your card getting declined. 

Do you offer promotional codes?
We offer promo codes to new customers or during special offers. Promo codes run during specific time periods. Please note that you can use only one promo code per order. Sale items are excluded from promos as they are already fully discounted, unless indicated otherwise. 

I have multiple discount codes; can I use all of them?
Only one promo code can be used per transaction. If you are having troubles with your promo code you can reach out to our Customer Care team and they can help you by email at info@inuanaturals.com.

I forgot to add a promo code.
Unfortunately, once an order is placed, we cannot retroactively apply promotion codes to any orders.
