No, discounts cannot be combined on a purchase.
Some products are exempt from all sales and discounts.
The following products are never discounted: Facials, Facial Packages, Workshops, IgG Tests, Gift Cards and Custom Serums.
Why can't I apply my discount to a Custom Serum?
We love blending your custom serum! But this is a made-to order bespoke product that is hand blended using your personalized recipe and we cannot offer it at a discount. Each Serum is blended just for you, your skin and the season.
Can I use my gift card as well as a discount code?
Yes! Enter your discount code at checkout. When you move to the payment page, you will have the opportunity to enter your gift card code.
I missed the sale but would like to apply the discount to my order, is this possible?
Unfortunately we don't honour sale discounts retroactively. We generally follow the major North American sales and will sometimes hint at sales on Instagram so be sure to follow us! We love surprises and hope you do too!
Are PA’s products certified organic?
Province Apothecary’s products are not certified organic by the USDA. Instead we insure our ingredients are of the highest quality and are a mix of certified and non-certified organic ingredients. The label on your PA product will say which ingredients are certified, but this does not mean that the other ingredients are not organic. To be certified organic is a long and expensive process, and some of our small, local suppliers do not find it worthwhile to go through this. We know our suppliers hold their products to a high standard of purity.
Why is it important to choose organic products like PA?
Your skin is the largest organ of your body and absorbs what you put on it. The chemicals used in many commercial products contain pesticides and these non-organic ingredients can have harmful effects on the body, filling it with toxins. We believe you should treat your body well and avoid these potentially harmful toxins.
Do you test on animals?
No, never. We are proud to be certified cruelty-free by the Leaping Bunny Program.
Are your products vegan?
All of our products are vegan except for our balms. These balms contain beeswax, which is not a truly vegan ingredient. All other products are certified vegan.
I have sensitive skin; are PA’s products going to work for me?
Our products are formulated to be perfect for sensitive and problem skin. While it is impossible to predict how everyone’s skin will react, our pure and natural ingredients are meant to hydrate and soothe. There are no harsh preservatives, fillers, or medial ingredients that typically irritate sensitive skin. In fact, PA products are formulated by creator Julie Clark who has suffered from problem skin and allergies. See the About page for her story!
However, every person is different and you may be allergic to ingredients you were not aware of. We recommend always performing a patch test on sensitive before trying any product. Learn how to perform a patch test HERE
What if I have a negative reaction to a PA product?
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have an adverse reaction to one of our products so we can understand the problem and work with you to find a solution. We advise that you read the ingredients of your product carefully and do a small patch test before beginning use.
Please consult a physician before introducing new products into your routine if you suffer from a severe illnesses or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
I'm pregnant; can I use PA products?
We recommend avoiding high concentrations of essential oils during your pregnancy. We have written a blog post for you with tons of info about using our products during pregnancy and which essential oils to avoid. Check it out here.
My product smells different than the last time i purchased it. Is something wrong?
We always strive to source the highest quality natural ingredients that are as fresh and unprocessed as we can find. Growing and harvesting botanical plants will vary from season to season depending on environmental changes. Nature is beautifully unique in this way because of its changeable qualities. This means that the fragrance or colour of our products may change from batch to batch, but the quality and effectiveness remains true to the product. We follow strict quality control procedures and blend all of our products in small batches, ensuring that the product you are using remains consistently true to our brand ethos.
How long will my PA products last?
Our products are made with all natural ingredients and no synthetic preservatives.
Revitalizing + Nourishing Moisturizer will last 6 months.
Invigorating + Balancing Toner will last 12 months.
All other products have a shelf life of 24 months.
All products should be kept at room temperature away from direct sunlight.

The purchaser will receive an email containing the link to the gift card and code. This email can then be forwarded to the intended recipient. No shipping costs will be added.
Does my gift card include tax and tip?
All treatment gift cards include tax. No Treatment gift card includes tip unless otherwise noted.
What if the price of the treatment I purchased a gift card for changes?
We will honour the original treatment purchased up to 1 year. After 1 year from the date of purchase, we will continue to honour the dollar value of the card towards treatments or products.

What if my order gets damaged in shipping?
We do our best to package your products carefully when they’re being shipped, but sometimes spills or breaks will occur. If your product arrives in bad condition, please snap a couple pictures and send them to email@example.com. We will asses the damage and do our best to make you happy.
Can I order samples of your products?
We do not ship samples to customers. We offer small sizes of all our products, and perfume samplers for our scents.
Who can receive a treatment?
Our facials are all natural and customizable for every skin type, so almost anyone can receive one. If you are pregnant, please tell your aesthetician at the time of your appointment, we do not recommend facials during the first trimester.
If you have an active cold sore, active eczema on your face, pink eye or a sty, have been an acutane in the last 12 month or using Retin A, we ask that you book a skincare consultation first to allow us to properly assess your skin and perform sensitivity testing.
