We are an Australian company based at Arundel on the Gold Coast, Queensland Australia 4214 - Google Maps

All our products are made in Brisbane Queensland Australia

All of our products are certified as cruelty free by PETA 

Our products are free from glycols, parabens and sodium laureth sulphates

We use high concentrations of active ingredients that have been sourced from nature. However, not everything from nature smells like roses, so we have added small amounts of fragrance to our products to round out some of those natural aromas that may be unpleasant to our senses.

We are unable to provide medical advice and suggest you speak with a health care practitioner. Ceasing the use of Vitamin A (retinoids) during pregnancy and breastfeeding is widely recommended. The full ingredients list of each product can be found on the product pages of our website as well as on the back of the product packaging.

Rest assured this is quite rare. Please cease use of the suspected product immediately and if irritation persists, consult a health care practitioner. Please contact our Customer Support Team or live chat with us on our website to discuss your concerns.

You will start to see results and positive changes in your skin after using after using our products for four weeks. If you have damaged skin, the time to see results may take longer.

If you have dry and or damaged skin, slight flaking may occur within the first two to seven days of use. This is normal and means the serum is working to improve your skin by removing dead skin cells.

Due to the high content of the active ingredient Aloe Vera, the formulation is thicker in consistency.

Each product is different, however on average our products should last 2-3 months depending on daily usage

No. If you have more than one coupon code say $ off and a % off, use the highest value discount code or choose to use one now an the other on your next purchase.

Our products come with the consumer guarantees found in the Australian Consumer Law which cannot be excluded, including guarantees that the products will be of acceptable quality. The consumer guarantees are not affected by our change of mind policy above. In the unlikely event that you receive products from us that do not comply with the consumer guarantees, we will provide you with a refund or exchange based on the below:

If we consider that the product has a major failure under the Australian Consumer Law (eg. the product is unsafe, does not fit the description or is not fit for purpose), you can return it and receive your choice of a refund or an exchange, and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage.

If we consider that the product has a minor failure under the Australian Consumer Law (eg. the product's packaging is cracked but does not affect the safety or use of the product), we will provide you with our choice of a refund or exchange.

Where a product is damaged through misuse, accident or abnormal use, the Australian Consumer Law or any manufacturer’s warranty may not apply, and Ellus & Krue may choose not to provide a refund, exchange or repair (if applicable).

Ellus & Krue will require proof of purchase before providing a remedy under the Australian Consumer Law.

Consumer guarantees cannot be excluded or limited and are in addition to any manufacturer’s warranties or extended warranties purchased by, or given to, you.
