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.
Beautiful natural cream blush
I have been using the shade "Love" for over a year and I love it. It gives a really nice sheer flush, and is very buildable. The color is a little to orange for me, so I'm excited to try some of the new shades recently launched!
Thank you for your review, Sarah. You are exactly right, Love is a great shade to achieve a nice, natural flush! If you would like help choosing an additional Blush Balm shade, please reach out to us at email@example.com. We are always happy to help!
I don’t wear much makeup, just blush and brows on most days. This is the ONLY blush I buy. It feels lovely on my dry skin and the colour lasts all day. I switch between a couple of different shades, depending on the session. I love this stuff :)
Thank you for this great review of our Blush Balms, Sarah! We are so happy that you love this product enough to purchase not one, but multiple shades! Thank you so much for your support.
This is my first time trying out cream over powder. I'm officially a convert! I have very fair skin like previous commenters, and it works well as a highlighter for me as well. I also appreciate that elate formulates it products to be multi-use, so I can use it as a base for eye color, cupid's bow highlighter, cheeks, jawbone, décolletage, anywhere! This will be in daily rotation for me, along with my brow balm and mascara. I would definitely recommend it!
Thank you for your review, Claire! Our Wonder highlight is one of our favourites, and we are so pleased that it has also become one of yours. Also, great job at using our products in so many different ways. We love multi-use!
Beautiful color and feels heavenly
I could not be more thrilled with the application of this Bliss Universal Creme! I've been a powder blush user for the past decade. With this, I feel like the best version of myself when wearing it! I also like the elate formulates its products to be multi-use. I can feel confident using it on my eyelids and lips too. I have very fair skin with warm undertones and this is a good fit for me, even without any foundation/coverage underneath. Would recommend!
Thank you for such a wonderful review, Claire! We are so happy to hear that our Universal Creme in Bliss has been such a great product in your beauty rituals. It is also amazing that you are taking full advantage of how versatile this shade can be!
I am olive/golden colored with freckles and live in a rather warm and sunny climate year round (southern portion of the northern hemisphere, about 28 degrees off the equator). The color is versatile as my skin lightens/darkens/freckles throughout the year. I honestly feel more confident and love how I look when I wear it! I don't wear makeup much, and I love that I can dual use this products for lips and cheeks. I have only ever used powder blush in the past for special occasions and wasn't thrilled with it. However, with Bliss Creme, I still look like me and feel like me when I have it on. I like it enough to throw on kind of whenever I feel like it, with or without reason!
Wow, what a fantastic review to receive, Alexis! We are so happy to hear that our Bliss Universal Creme has been the perfect sustainable blush for your beauty rituals. If you haven't already, we also recommend using this product on your lips as a subtle lip tint!
