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.
Soft, full, and sustainable
Great brush for face powder. Could also be used with powder blush. Really soft, but packed with bristles so holds a lot of powder. Love the bamboo and stainless, as well as no animal hair bristles.
Bamboo Multi Use Brush
The perfect multi use brush and non toxic to boot!
Makes all the difference!
First of all, this brush feels so soft and amazing. Like an angel wing gently slapping your face. Second, having the proper brush really does make all the difference. I'd been using a kabuki brush from a different company and, while it did work, it wasn't as good as this brush at getting the coverage I'd like. Third, it's cute and sustainably made which I can definitely get behind!
It's a great brush! Pretty dense, so it helps with coverage.
I just got this brush for Christmas and it is so soft! I love that it feels natural and works well.
Thank you for your review, Savannah! Our Multi-Use Brush is essential in any beauty collection, and we are so glad you love it. To keep your brush clean, we highly recommend trying our Brush Cleanser!
