Biodegradable vs Compostable

A large part of our decision making processes are about the lifecycle of our products. We think about biodegradable packaging and try to find ways of making makeup products that you can feel good about, but also products that don’t undermine our values.

There is no such thing as zero waste

The truth is, we’re not quite at a place of ‘zero waste’, yet. Even with the rise of low waste packaging and low waste makeup brands, we are still contributing to waste production. This is because products have to go somewhere at the end of their use.

About Elate

It started with everyday rituals

With over 20 years of experience in the beauty industry, our founder Melodie envisioned a healthier future for the industry—one unmarred by shame-based marketing and single-use packaging. One that embraced inclusivity and advocated for sustainability. One that recognized the potential for everyday rituals to make a global impact. Elate? Let’s just call it Melodie’s vision in the making, all made possible by a team of fellow beauty-obsessed, sustainability advocates.
