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.
