Empty, clean, mail, repeat
We believe we’re each responsible for the waste we create—and that includes every foundation, mascara and lipstick we make at Elate. We've partnered with PACT to ensure all of our packaging is recycled responsibly. Simply love your Elate, empty it, clean it and mail it- or return it to any participating in-store location.
Our ingredients are about 75% organic. We strive to make our ingredients as organic as possible but will always choose fair trade over organic if we are unable to have both. It is important to us that every person involved in the making of our cosmetics is treated ethically and fairly.
We work closely with a green certified, fair trade manufacturer in China - where the bamboo is water processed and never chemically treated.
As bamboo is more readily available within Asia, we believe it is more climate-friendly (or sustainable) to have our products assembled where it is harvested, and then shipped to us.
Our bamboo supplier was carefully selected based on their FSC Certification. The Forest Stewardship Council Certification is a rigorous process, which includes an individual assessment and yearly audits.
We use a vegan-based carnauba wax that is derived for the leaves of the Copernicia prunifera tree.
Different from the palm grown and harvested in South East Asia, this powder is extracted from the leaves of the tree and does not require the tree to be brought down. Some ingredients, such as Stearic Acid, are also palm based and are supplied by RSPO certified suppliers who are regularly audited. You can learn more about the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil here.
All Elate packaging is elligible to be returned to us for proper recycling and disposal. Just clean your empty containers and send them back to us, we'll take care of the rest.
Yes, we offer sample kits of all of our foundation and concealers so that you can find the perfect shade before committing. Our sample options can be found on our Sample Kits page here, and will come packaged in recyclable/reusable aluminum tins. If you are unsure of your matching shade, we encourage you to purchase a sample size before committing to a full size product.
Best brow brush!
I love a good two-in-one. This brow brush is perfectly paired with the brow balm for easy application and brushing.
Thank you for your review, Sarah! We also love a good multi-use product, because why have something that only does one job when you can have something that does many? If you haven't already, we recommend that you also try using this brush to apply eyeliner as well!
I recommend getting this brush if you're going to use the brow balm. I didn't purchase it at first because I already had an angled liner brush, but that one had longer and more pliable bristles which made picking up the product a bit difficult. This is a good match.
Thank you for sharing your feedback, M K. Our Bamboo Brow Brush pairs beautifully with our Brow Balm, so we're honoured to see it in your beauty collection!
It works okay but it’s not my favourite browser brush.
Hi Devon, We are sorry to hear that our Brow Brush did not work for you! We are always grateful to receive feedback from our Elate Community and would love it if you emailed us at firstname.lastname@example.org to describe your challenges with this product.
I'd consider this one of the best additions to my beauty ritual. Like many things at elate, this is multifunctional - my dream! All about using the same thing in multiple ways or simplifying my beauty ritual pieces. I'd suggest this also because of the water-treated bamboo they use and the metal casing - great for recycling.
Thank you for taking the time to review our Bamboo Brow Brush, Claire! We love multi-use products too - especially ones that make flawless brows every single time!
I held off on ordering initially with the brow balm because I already had an angled brush to use, but eventually I wanted the convenience of an all-in-one brow brush with the angled end and the spoolie attached. I didn’t think this brush would be any different than my other angled brush, but as you can see from the photos it is much smaller allowing for more precision in applications. A spoolie is a spoolie in my opinion, but the convenience factor of both on 1 tool is worth a new purchase for me. For those who want precise application, the cost of this would be justified. Hopefully my photos help someone.
Hi Kayla. We're so grateful for your support of Elate Cosmetics! Thank you for including our vegan and cruelty free Bamboo Brow Brush into your sustainable beauty rituals. We're so honoured!
