Better Balm

Key Ingredients

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.

Carrot Root Oil

Rich in Beta Carotene, vitamins and essential fatty acids to soothe, heal, and nourish dry skin.

Rosehip Seed Oil

High in vitamins and essential fatty acids to brighten, regenerate and heal and protect the skin.

Calendula Wax

A natural thickener, this wax is often used to replace beeswax in vegan products while protecting.

Sunflower Oil

Helps skin retain moisture, aids in rehydration and is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins.

Recycling program

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.

The Elate Standard


Ethical ingredients

All of our ingredients are vegan and cruelty-free. We follow the EU standards for safety (the most stringent on the planet) and source our ingredients from fair-trade and ethical sources.

Sustainable packaging

Over 75% of our packaging is reusable, recyclable or plantable—and we’re working on the other 25%. Our vision: To create a world without single-use cosmetics packaging.

Responsible marketing

We believe beauty is inclusive. By representing diversity in our marketing, we can empower beauty in all its shapes and shades, enhancing confidence and reducing overconsumption.

FAQs

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.

Great neutral gloss

A wonderful balm for daily wear that’s a subtle pink. Love that it is a great texture, easy to apply and actually holds up well. Highly recommend Bloom and Poise.

Great for a little color

I love the shade of this and that it’s only a little color - im not into the bold lip look. Looks great and natural and is super hydrating

The best balm ever!!

I absolutely love this lip balm. It just glides on the lips, keeps them soft and is the perfect colour for day wear. Almost **** and so indulgent. This is my favourite and regular balm from now on

Elate Beauty

Thank you for your review, Shabibi! We are thrilled that our Arise Better Balm has been such a welcome addition to your sustainable beauty ritual. Our Better Balms can be used to add moisture to the lips, as a sheer dewy cheek colour, and even to add nutrients to your cuticles. We love multi-use products!

Good

Definitely more like a lip gloss than I was expecting with a shiny finish and it doesn't last long on the lips. However my lips do feel great afterwards! Its a nice touch to most looks.

Elate Beauty

Thank you for sharing such incredible feedback with the Elate Community, Kieryn! We're thrilled you love the result of our low waste and sustainable lip conditioner, but completely understand that you were expecting a different finish. To keep your Better Balm lasting longer, we recommend multiple applications throughout the day or layer it on top of your favorite lipstick.

Perfect

This is so seriously hydrating and offers a tint of color. I love that I feel comfortable letting my 5 year old daughter wear this because she really loves getting to put pink on her lips. The packaging is very sustainable. I don't feel the need to buy more than one, but I'll probably buy different colors as I use them up. I also love that the have a clear version for those who don't want the tint.

Elate Beauty

Thank you for such a wonderful review once again! Bloom is our team go-to for a soft rose lip colour, so it's no surprise that you and your daughter love it too. With cruelty-free ingredients like rosehip seed oil and carrot root oil, your lips thank you!
