    Frquently Asked Questions

    Who the heck is Basic Maintenance®?

    Long story short - we're a team of seasoned cosmetic chemists that got tired of working in the shadows, creating mediocre products for lackluster brands.

    You might even call us "mad scientists," but really, we were just fed up.

    We were fed up with the endless chitchat, the cookie-cutter tales, and the empty promises. We were done with the false hope and misinformation flooding the beauty world.

    It's as if we were drowning in a sea of new releases and ever-complicated regimens. Each week brought a new "miracle" cure for issues we didn't even know existed.

    The beauty industry was wearing us down. So, we took our expertise and went out on our own.

    Do you offer free shipping?

    We sure do. We offer free standard shipping on all offers found on this page.

    The express rate is $20.

    Where do you ship to?

    Anywhere in the world. Just enter your address at checkout and we'll be sure everything makes it right to your doorstep in a safe and timely manner.

    How long does shipping take?

    Orders typically go out within 1-2 business days. We use couriers as opposed to snail mail, so you can expect your stuff 2-5 days thereafter.

    What is your return policy? Do you have any guarantees?

    After 60 days - you either like what you see, or it's free. Simple as that. No questions asked. No returns necessary.

    Where are your products made?

    We design, craft, make and ship all of our products from our headquarters in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

    What is the shelf-life of your products?

    All of our products last approximately one year after they’ve been opened, and 2 years prior to that.

    Are your products all natural?

    Our products have been engineered for the best of both worlds. Simply put, we select our ingredients based on productivity. Whether it’s natural or synthetic doesn’t concern us as much as its effectiveness, its stability, its impact on the environment and its likelihood to cause irritation.

    Do any of your products contain parabens?

    No. But, we could and all would be perfectly fine. This just happens to be an instance of fear-mongering that has prevailed to the point it’s nearly impossible for young, start-up brands to risk using them.

    Do your cleansers contain sulfates?

    None of our products contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Laureth Sulfate. Despite it being a perfectly fine ingredient when used in the proper concentrations with the proper co-ingredients, this was again one of those instances where public perception was simply too strong of a hurdle for us - the little guy - to overcome.

    Do any of your products contain phthalates?

    No. But again, we could and all would be perfectly fine. This just happens to be yet another instance of fear-mongering that has prevailed to the point it’s nearly impossible for young, start-up brands to risk using them.

    Is your packaging recyclable?

    Absolutely. All of our packaging is fully-recyclable in most jurisdictions. While we do use virgin plastics, this is again an issue we are set to resolve once we can justify ordering 10,000 Post-Consumer-Resin containers.

    Are there any side-effects?

    Yes, and we're glad you asked. As a result of using these products, you'll be using less products in general. So while we may not have launched our collection with sustainability in mind - it turns out that less products needed means less products produced, less packaging produced, and less shipments shipped. Go figure - everything moonlights as an environmental superhero.
