When you contact Healthy Planet please provide the proof that the product(s) is/are damaged. Clear picture of the damaged product is an acceptable form of proof. If you do not notify Healthy Planet of damaged goods within the first 14 days of arrival, our regular return policy will override any claim of damage, and will fall under all current manufacturer restrictions.

Only exception to the above rule is cosmetic item(s), there is no return on cosmetics items.
DEFECTIVE products can be returned directly to Healthy Planet within 14 days from the invoice date, at Healthy Planet discretion for: credit, replacement or exchange.
Manufacturer restrictions do apply and are outlined in our detailed policy. Any item that is missing the UPC can ONLY be replaced with the same item. After 14 days, all manufacturers' warranties apply.
The only exceptions to the return policy are products from Metagenics, bars and Juicers. For Juicers you have to directly contact the manufacturer.
Q. Why don't you accept returns on certain items?
A. There are several manufacturers who do not take returns from any distributor or wholesaler like ourselves. As a result, we must either raise our prices for this manufacturer's products or keep our prices low and not accept returns. We have chosen the latter.
The other exception applies to all bars. Taste is very subjective and certain nutritious bars will never taste like a candy bar. All product descriptions will identify the items for which we do not accept returns. You will then be able to factor this into your purchase decision.
