We're closing public collections for now! For any inquiries or requests, please drop us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your interest in contributing to the Pantry! Please be mindful that others will be taking home these pre-owned products, so let's all do our part to maintain the highest quality.
1. Products must be in good condition
We will only be accepting products that are brand new, swatched or lightly-used. These products must be in close-to-perfect condition. Please label them to differentiate their conditions when they’re being dropped-off at Beauty Pantry.
- Brand New - Never used, unopened, preferably sealed (especially tubs, liquid products with wands and applicators)
- Swatched - Product still looks good as new, but with evidence of a single swatch
- Lightly used - Product has been used only a few times, with at least 90% of the product that remains
2. No expired products
Please check that these products are not expired. As a general rule of thumb, we typically will not accept products with manufacturing dates before 2017, even if they are unopened. Please only pass us items that have been purchased recently (in the last 12 months).
If there isn't any date reflected on the product, here's a tip:
The product has an unopened lifespan of less than 30 months, with its best used date below it
The product has an unopened lifespan of more than 30 months. The number states the time that the product will stay in good condition after its first opening, e.g. 12 months
3. Definite no-nos
Liquid products that come with a wand or applicator will not be accepted unless brand new and unopened. These include lip glosses, liquid concealers, mascaras, liquid eyeliners, etc
Skin care products that come in tubs will not be accepted unless brand new and still sealed, due to potential contamination.
4. Only trusted brands
Please only contribute items that have their product information and ingredients written in English. You may offload products with text written in other languages (e.g. Korean, Japanese) but do exercise discretion when deciding whether they are trustworthy products.
LIST OF BRANDS WE ACCEPT:
We may have accidentally missed out some great brands in our list (there are just too many!), so if the product you'd like to drop off is not from any of the below brands but is a trustworthy brand, please contact us on our chatbox for further enquiries.

5. Samples accepted
The same guidelines mentioned in the previous points apply for accepting samples. However, no points will be given in exchange for them.
6. Register products with the Inventory Form
Every submission must be registered with the Inventory Form. If we are not able to match the products we received to your registration form, we won't be able to allocate points to you.
7. Points allocation
Each product you contribute will be assessed and graded with up to 20 points.
|Condition (max 5 points)|
|Brand New (sealed)||5|
|Market Value (max 15 points)|
The market value will be checked against the items' online retailing prices. Higher value products will earn you a higher number of points. For each category of beauty products (i.e. Make up, Skincare, Hair & Body, and Others) there will be different price ranges for the 3 value ratings. Refer to the following table for more information.
Based on the total number of points you've accumulated, you will be entitled to discounts when shopping with us.

8. Rejected products
Our confirmation email will let you know if we’ve had to reject any of your items if they fail to meet the Pantry Guidelines. If you’d like them returned, you can let us know within a week, otherwise we will dispose of them. We may impose a penalty fee for disposal services if we notice that it is happening too often.
