FAQ's and Other Important Information
Free Samples
 
To keep costs competitive, we do not offer free samples. (Nothing is ever really free)
All products are offered in very small quantities online. (Usually 1/2 - 1 ounce)
These should be adequate samples necessary for Research and Development purposes and serve as an adequate sample to evaluate the product.

Product Shelf Life
 
Fresh and Natural are core principles of Natural skincare.
Because all ingredients degrade over time, fresh and natural products or ingredients should be consumed within in a fairly short time frame.
Think of them as food for your skin and use the same basic standards you would for consuming food.
If you think it may not be fresh, dispose of it and replace it new with ingredients or products.
If shelf life is an issue, purchase less to be more in line with your usage.
Because we have no control over the product once it leaves our facility, we can not guarantee shelf life or stability once it is out of our care and custody.

FCC, Food Grade and USP
  FCC - Food Chemical Codex. This means these items meet the standards for them it to be used in food products.
Food Grade - The term, “food grade,” actually refers to the materials and equipment used when making a product.
To be defined as food grade, materials need to be non-toxic and safe for use with products associated with human consumption.

USP - US Pharmacopeia. This means these items meet the standards to be used in medications or as an active or inactive ingredient in medications and (OTC) over the counter products.
Formulation Recommendations
  TNS does not recommend any specific formulations for products or raw materials that we sell.
This is beyond the scope of services we provide for these items.
We do offer our own formulated combination products, but we are unable to make any specific ingredient combination recommendations.
We recommend our customers research and experiment with ingredient combinations using various resource documents and information readily available on the Internet and in books.
We highly recommend a thorough understanding of each ingredient and encourage careful small batch experimentation.
MSDS and Certificates of Analysis (COA)
 
Certificates of Analysis (COA)
We do not provide Certificates of Analysis (COA) for products or raw materials beyond what is listed for the product on the website.

General basic data is included in the COA area for each product on the website.
This data should be adequate enough to be able to determine if the product meets your general standards.
Any specific parameters or testing beyond this information will not be provided and it is recommended that the company ordering the raw material or product do any additional testing as needed for their purposes.
Once any form of alteration or change is made to the product, the values of pH, Specific Gravity. Viscosity, Color, Smell, Texture, Shelf Life and Preservative Efficacy may be altered.
Therefore any final testing for specific values would need to be done by the company selling to the final consumer.
Any lot-specific testing is the responsibility and at the cost of the company selling to the final consumer.


The purchase of raw materials and products from this website does not somehow convey a right to any data beyond what is listed on the website.
These products and raw materials sold are for cosmetic purposes and values beyond what is provided in COA area would exceed the necessary information for these types of applications.


Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)
Many of the raw materials we provide are not considered hazardous and we are not required, by law, to provide an MSDS, pursuant to Occupational Health and Safety Administration regulations.
Specifically, Section 29 CFR 1910, 1200 (b)(6)(iv) indicates what ingredients are not applicable to the Hazard Communication section (1910.1200) of the OSHA regulation.


An MSDS request must meet the following criteria:
1. The raw material must meet OSHA standards to be classified as a hazardous material
2. The business making the purchaser must be a legal business that is conducting commerce from a commercial location
3. The business must have employees
4. The product must have been purchased in a quantity that exceeds the amount normally available for general purchase from a grocery store or other commercial store.
IE: Quantity of Vegetable Oil greater than 1 gallon

If MSDS request is made by a business, we
will require proof of your business profile, in order to process your MSDS request.

Documents that will be expected to be provided as proof of business status include State Sales Tax and Use Permit, Business License and EIN number and commercial address.
We may also do additional investigation and research to establish the validity of your request before providing an MSDS.
These documents must display the commercial address that is the same as the shipping address on the company order.

Request for MSDS's should be sent via email and will be provided electronically via email only. They must be for items ordered within the last 30 days.

Net Weight
  Net Wt means the weight of the item not including the container in pounds and ounces .

When using different units of measurement.... items can be measured in either Net Wt or Volume.
Net Wt is when an item is weighted on a scale.
Volume is the space that an item takes up in a container and is typically used for liquid measure measurement.

Volume is based on the Specific gravity of water and space it occupies in a container.
Oils and other items may be either thicker or thinner than water and will weight more or less than water and can take up either more or less space in the same container. (See how this could make a huge difference in how much you might be buying?)

Based on this principle; we sell all items based on Net Weight not Volume.

If we sell you X lbs or Ounces of an item you get X lbs or Ounces of that item.
You will not get what would fill a container to a specific volume level.
Volume is an amount that can vary greatly depending on the viscosity, Specific Gravity or temperature of that item.

By using Net Weight for measuring items you are assured that you, the customer, are getting exactly what you are paying for and this allows you to compare pricing.

If a company has volume pricing like (X gallons); be sure to get a Net Weight in (X pounds and /or ounces) for this same item. The cost per ounce or pound you are paying may be significantly different once you know the Net Weight when compared to Volume.

YOU DESERVE TO GET WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR!

OSHA Requirements Regarding MSDS
 
Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS)
Items that are not hazardous do not require an MSDS and OSHA does not want these keep by companies or authored by manufacturers as it causes confusion to employees and decreases the ability for employees to ascertain what items in the workplace do require additional caution when handling.
Material safety data sheets provide the necessary information for you to understand and deal with the potential hazards associated with a particular substance.
Remember: MSDS's are only required for materials that are hazardous.
Often times, manufacturers/suppliers are asked for MSDS's for products that do not meet this requirement.
Manufacturers/suppliers are under no obligation to produce MSDS's for non-hazardous materials.
We are OSHA compliant and follow their request to not produce an MSDS's for non-hazardous materials.
Hazardous Definition:
What items do (or do not) require MSDS's?
      OSHA requires MSDS's ONLY for materials that
    • a) meet OSHA's definition of hazardous and
    • b) are "known to be present in the workplace in such a manner that employees may be exposed under normal conditions of use or in a foreseeable emergency".
Pricing Errors
  In the event that there is a pricing error on the website, we reserve the right to refund you for that item or offer you the correct pricing and allow you to choose if you still want to purchase that item at the correct price.
We will not honor pricing errors.
If a price seems too high or to low in respect to comparable items, please feel free to contact us for verification via email or live chat.
