PayPal: Why we no longer offer this payment option

We are very sorry that we no longer offer PayPal as a payment option due to matters beyond our control. PayPal informed us recently that some skin care products in our store didn’t meet their terms of use and consequently withdrew their service. This is despite the said products being legal in Germany. 

As all our esteemed customers know, we work very closely with the consumer protection authorities here in Germany and have always reacted immediately in case a product was found to be unsafe in any way. We continue to do this as the safety of our customers is our utmost priority.

PayPal is an extremely popular and convenient way to pay in online stores. We sincerely apologize to our customers for the inconvenience of not being able to have this option and encourage you to use the alternative available options.
