Shipping / Orders

US Shipping

Items ordered and paid for will ship from our fulfillment center within 2–3 business days, unless otherwise noted in description of product. We primarily ship through USPS. You will receive an email notification from us that contains tracking information once your order has been shipped. Due to COVID 19, USPS deliveries can take up to one month to deliver in US. We sadly do not have control over third party shippers. 

International Shipping

If Customs charges occur please note that the buyer (you) is 100% responsible for the fees. MARA is not responsible for customs charges. Please note that International orders can take up to 4 weeks to arrive after they are shipped since all orders must pass through customs.

How soon can I expect my order?

Due to COVID-19, USPS is experiencing extended shipping times. Please know that all orders are fulfilled within 48 hours and are picked up from our warehouse. Shipping labels showing up as "Pre-Shipment" have also already left our facility and are waiting to be scanned by USPS, which can take up to two weeks. Domestic orders can take up to one month to deliver. 

If you can’t wait that long, we offer UPS and Overnight options priced by zipcode and weight. 

For International Orders: Please allow up to four weeks for your order to arrive after shipping. Usually it will arrive sooner, but customs departments do have the right to hold items and there is not much we can do about this. Also, we do not pay for anything to be released from customs to you.

Order and Shipping Issues

If your building is not secure, we suggest requesting a required signature for delivery. Please contact our Support team to arrange as we do not include this cost or service with shipping.

Refunds / Exchanges

Frequently Asked Questions

Is everything natural?

We’ve sourced the finest, clean ingredients and are committed to using as many natural ingredients as possible.  Algae + Moringa® Universal Face Oil is 100% natural.

At MARA, we also believe in science and use the best possible ingredients to give you clean, non-toxic formulas and amazing results. We like to remind our customers that natural doesn’t always mean it’s good for you and science doesn’t always equal bad. 

Do products vary in color and scent?

Due to natural ingredients, MARA products can vary in scent and color from batch to batch depending on the harvest. Our products are stability tested for extreme temperatures and will not spoil in transit, but should still be stored in a cool, dark place if possible.
