WHY WE HAVE THIS POLICY
We know quality is important to you and it is of utmost importance to us. The purpose of this Sales Policy is to ensure that Alastin Skincare maintain its high quality and associated brand goodwill and to govern the terms under which you may purchase products from us via the Services.
Alastin Skincare may, at the company’s sole discretion, terminate any account that does not comply with this Policy.

Physician Provider Terms
Alastin Skincare is committed to providing high quality skincare products to consumers. This goal is best served by offering consumers our products through authorized physician-based accounts (Physician Providers) that resell our products to patients/consumers and provide superior service in a way that is consistent with Alastin’s business strategy.
- Physician Providers may place orders via their Alastin portal or through their designated account manager
- For a Physician Provider to open an account, a minimum of a case order of any product is required
- Once an account is open there is a no minimum dollar amount per order; however, there is a unit minimum per SKU
- Minimum SKU quantity rules will be enforced; no exceptions
Physician Providers that engage in any of the following sales or advertising tactics will have their accounts deemed unauthorized and will not receive future shipments of Alastin Skincare products:
- Reselling Alastin Skincare products without the participation of a practicing physician with a valid DEA number or Medical Education number
- Reselling Alastin Skincare products without giving customers access to a physician or skin care professional in connection with the sale, service, and support of the product
- Advertising Alastin Skincare products in a manner that is inconsistent with the Alastin Skincare brand
- Reselling Alastin Skincare products to purchasers for resale
- Selling Alastin Skincare products for export outside the United States, either directly or indirectly, without prior written authorization from Alastin Skincare corporate
- Selling Alastin Skincare products for an advertised or published discount of more than 5% below the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. This does not include in-office promotions, which may not be advertised via the Internet, radio, or TV
- Failing to respond promptly to customer complaints
As stated above, we are committed to providing high quality skincare products to consumers. This includes establishing a policy that protects consumers and Physician Providers from potentially counterfeit and/or illegally acquired products. To help facilitate these protections, our Sales Policy prohibits the promotion or sale of Alastin products on any Internet site unless our business rules are strictly adhered to. As part of this Sales Policy, Alastin:
- Prohibits the discounting of any Alastin product below 5% of the manufacturer’s suggested retail price.
- By United States based accounts, prohibits the Internet sales of any Alastin product outside of the United States, either directly or indirectly, without prior written authorization from Alastin corporate. By International accounts, prohibits Internet sales of any Alastin product outside of their Territories outlined in their Alastin contract, either directly or indirectly, without prior written authorization from Alastin corporate.
- Requires completion of the Authorized Account Registration Form in order to register your site and gain authorization to advertise, sell or otherwise promote Alastin products on the Internet
- Requires registered website home page to include affiliated medical director name and title, physical address and contact phone number for customers.
We strongly believe that each of the sales or advertising tactics outlined above are likely to damage the investment that Alastin Skincare has made in offering high quality products that are part of a medically supervised skin care regimen managed by physicians. This list is not exhaustive, and Alastin Skincare, Inc. reserves the right to exercise independent discretion in regards to which accounts are authorized to buy and sell Alastin Skincare products.
