In a skipthe-insta-uber-prime world, it may seem unusual that Just the Goods products aren’t shipped the moment they’re ordered. Did you know this is because they're handmade to order? Yes! Fresh batches of facial, body, and hair care products are made every week! Sometimes there’s enough product at the end of a batch to fill a few orders the following week or two (i.e. body butter, or face masks) but overall approx 160 Just the Goods and petal, leaf, root. by Just the Goods products are made according to your selections at justthegoods.net 😊
There are a few reasons for this. First, JTG products are made without artificial preservatives so, like fresh food, they are best enjoyed sooner rather than later. Some formulas can last as long as a year when stored correctly (i.e. the body butter and face masks mentioned above), but I still make a point of creating in small batches because I want you to receive the freshest items possible, not things that have been sitting on a warehouse shelf in anticipation of shipping by a fulfillment center. JTG’s amazing retailers likewise facilitate fresh products for you when you shop in-store by restocking often to ensure a recent selection of items on their shelves.
Next, making products to order is part of how JTG can offer such affordable public wholesale pricing --- raw materials are allocated based on formula demand, so there’s no need to inflate product prices only to discount older items when they’re approaching expiry. From a logistical perspective, this also keeps our supply of raw materials flowing toward needed items -- we don’t run out of things because we used them on items not ordered within a particular week.
Since we currently receive anywhere from 175 - 250 orders per week of variable sizes involving an unpredictable variety of choices from approx 160 products, it’s most logical to approach on-demand production (i.e. making one or several batches of a single product then filling it into the selected packaging material and size) on a weekly cycle.
What this means is that we’re currently making products for the orders submitted last week, and next week we’ll be making the products being ordered this week.
In the spirit of transparency that permeates Just the Goods’ very core, our current production and shipping schedule is always published at the top of every page of justthegoods.net. A more detailed schedule outlining production and shipping for the next several weeks, plus information about carrier and delivery standards, can be accessed by clicking the schedule text/website announcement bar. This info is updated weekly so there are never surprises about exactly where your order falls, even before your order is placed. JTG’s subscription service also eliminates the need to guess when your order may be made and shipped, because it can function without you even lifting a finger/mouse/stylus 😉
Thank you for choosing freshly handmade products prepared with care, often literally and precisely for *you*
