What payment methods are accepted?

Is your website secure?
Yep! On any page where we ask you to enter your address, phone number, or credit card information, we use secure socket layer (SSL) to encrypt the communication.
What skin types are Kani products suitable for?
Our products are appropriate for all skin types: they’re hypoallergenic, non-irritating, and paraben free.
Is everything you make really natural?
Yes! We use the finest natural ingredients we can find. This includes herbs, butters, clay, sea salts, and natural oils.
Most of our products are preservative free and 100% organic! The shelf life of most of our items is 12 months from when you receive your product. Absolutely no formaldehyde, silicone, parabens, gluten (except where noted in the description) or BPA plastic is allowed at Kani Botanicals.
If we sell an item that has a water-based component (such as room sprays) we must use a gentle eco-preservative Leucidal (Radish Ferment) to retard the development of mold & bacteria.
Will my product melt/dry/freeze/expire/etc.?
If the product is subjected to excessive heat or cold for short periods of time, it will not impact the product’s efficacy, though it may result in a thicker or thinner texture.
If our products are kept out of direct sunlight and at room temperature or below, they will stay fresher longer.
Since our products are truly all-natural and we do not use any unnatural preservatives at all, our products do have a shelf life, typically 12-24 months or 6 months after opening for best product quality…but we think you’ll love them so much that this won’t even be an issue.
All of our liquid products include totally natural preservatives called Leucidal (Radish Root Ferment) and Lactococonut (Coconut Extract). We also use Vitamin E, Grapefruit Seed Extract and Rosemary Extract in some of our products to extend the natural shelf life and keep the oils in their freshest and most potent form.
In the rare case that you purchase one of our products and find that it is not at its freshest point, please email us so we can handle this on a case-by-case basis. See our Contact page for email addresses.
Do you test on animals?
NEVER EVER! Not only do we not test on animals but all of our products are 100% Vegan. All of our ingredients are vegan, yes every single one including our hard wax (candelilla) and all of our micas (carmine free). All of our products are tested on humans only. We love animals, and it is very important for us to stay cruelty-free.
Are your products made in the US?
Yep, all of our products are handmade in our small production facilities in Spokane, Washington.
Where do you source your materials from?
Our goal is to provide products that are created from 100% organically sourced or wild-crafted ingredients & botanicals. We have been making and using the products we sell for years, all prepared in the studio of our urban farmstead in Spokane, Wa. The majority of our ingredients are sourced from within Washington, Oregon and Idaho, and most seasonal items come from surrounding farms in Green Bluff, the rest of the items are sourced within the US or with importers whose ethics align with ours.
Are your products gluten free?
Yes, all of our products are gluten free, and do not come in any contact with gluten during production, unless stated otherwise. Please email us if you have any questions about cross contamination with gluten.
Do your products contain any nut oils?
Yes some of our products contain sweet almond oil and argan oil. These types of nut oil typically do not irritate people with nut allergies, but we recommend consulting your doctor first if you have a nut allergy.
