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.
The PRO is big enough for your widest dreams. Whenever I share photos of my makeup rituals, everyone asks me about this palette because onto of being function it is gorgeous.
This is such a great review, Muskan! We are elated to hear that this has been your experience with our Pro Palette and that it fits everything you need in your ritual! Thank you for being a part of our Elate Community.
I purchased a perfectly imperfect pro palette. It is so beautiful and I love how easy it is to interchange your products. I am able to keep my summer and winter foundation and blush shades, five eye shadows, and my brow balm in it! Highly recommend!
Thank you for your kind review Shelby! We love that your Pro Palette has made a difference in your beauty rituals and that you are customizing your palette to fit all of your favourites. We are looking forward to seeing what other products you add to your sustainable beauty collection!
I absolutely love this pallet it fits all the things I need for my daily makeup ritual. It makes it easy to travel and keep my things organized. I love how eco-friendly it makes my make up routine when I can purchase refills and save on packaging. If you like your things organized and I would recommend this pallet to keep everything in one place!
Thank you for your review Sarah! We are so glad to hear that you're loving your Bamboo Pro Palette! You're right, it's so easy to keep your favourite products organized and ready to travel with you! We can't wait to see all the ways you customize your Pro Palette!
More than I even expected!
I just received my two new Elate PRO makeup palettes, I love my black faux croc Adept palette for its extra large size, but for sheer beauty and functionality (how much do I LOVE being able to see my cosmetics at a glance??), this Elate palette checks ALL the boxes! And it is ecologically responsible to boot. This is high quality, friends. I'm so very pleased with my purchase and am considering ordering a couple more for gifts. <^.,.^>
Hello Maria. We're honoured to be a part of your low waste beauty rituals! You're completely right; the PRO Palette is great for your sustainable Beauty essentials. We look forward to seeing how you refill your palette full of Elate Cosmetics refillable makeup!
Stunning! This pallet is all and more than what I hoped for! Very high quality, and the perfect amount of space (FYI closed this is 8.5”x6”). Also, my package came packaged very mindfully and securely without using a bunch of plastics etc. Everything I can either recyclable or reusable (yay)! I HIGHLY recommend, can’t wait to shop here again!
