Sheer moisturizing shine
Nourishing carrot root and rosehip oil
Protects your lips from environmental pollutants
Tinted Lip Conditioner
Our Better Balm is better in more ways than one: Made with carrot root oil and rosehip seed oil, it’s rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, rehydrating and regenerating dry skin while protecting your pout from environmental pollutants. And its sheer shine isn’t just for the lips—blend it into cheeks for a dewy glow, or use it to hydrate and repair dry cuticles.
Building a sustainable future starts with transparent practices. Elate ingredients are carefully chosen for efficacy and sustainability. Our ethical supply chain means we prioritize people and the planet, and balance performance with purpose.

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.
Lovely balm shades
This is a very nice lip balm, with a good bit of colour (sheer, but not too sheer). I did find the peach shade to have a bit of a smell to it that I don't like, so probably wouldn't get it again but the clear and the Poise shades are very nice. I use clear before bed, and like the Poise on its own or with a lip colour for extra moisture. Look forward to trying more shades when I can justify buying more.
Good but not great for me
Like this product, but I don't feel like it lasts on my lips so I have to constantly reapply.
This is the best balm! Love the formula and the shade! Poise is my absolute favourite! It’s so pretty!
I love this balm! It's super soft and subtle and has a nice light tint. It also keep my lips nice and soft, especially in the cold months!!
Challenging in practice
Good color and texture but hydration faded quickly and color smeared beyond lips.
