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.
Very pretty cream blush
This is a really pretty cream blush that I actually found when I asked the Elate team if they had a dupe for the Glossier cloud paint in Dusk. I was very happy with the recommendation as the colors are similar, though Bliss has more pink to it and is slightly less pigmented. I think that I will try Keen next.
You're making us blush with this review! If you loved our Bliss Universal Creme, you're sure to adore the updated Blush Balm version. In a creamier and more pigmented formula, it's a show stopper.
I absolutely love blush and wear a lot of it, and this is definitely one of my favourite blushes! It has great pigment, goes on easily, and lasts a long time. I definitely recommend trying this product!
What a fantastic review of our Blush Balm, Hanna! Our updated formula has increased pigment, allowing you to keep your blush for longer. Not to mention it's so easy to apply! We can't wait to hear what you think of our other Blush shades, Hanna -The Elate team
So soft and smooth
I got the Blush Balm in Bliss and I adore it! The colour is very natural on my lips and cheeks. It feels so soft and buttery on my skin. It moisturizers and gives my face a much needed glow.
Thank you for your review, Donna! You have great taste because our Bliss Blush Balm is one of our favourites as well. We are so happy to hear that it has been such a welcome addition to your sustainable beauty collection! If you haven't already, we recommend also trying this shade as a lip and eye colour to create a stunning monochromatic look! We love a good multi-use product.
Makes me feel beautiful!
I stopped wearing blush for years because I felt like its just not necessary but I bought this randomly and it makes me feel so beautiful! I never finish my makeup without it, I use the colour "Bliss" and it is warm and pretty but not too red/pink. The cream texture also makes it hydrating and feels like it is good for the skin and will last longer.
What an amazing review of our Blush Balm, Lindsay! We're so thrilled to hear that Bliss has made its way into your everyday beauty rituals, it must look absolutely stunning on you. We can't wait to see which Blush Balm shade you try next!
I have the shade bliss, and it's the perfect shade for summer! Very flattering. I'm not sure if there's a trick to blending, but it's kind of tough to do with just my fingers. I think I'll ultimately go back to powder blush, but the colour makes it worth keeping this one :)
Thank you for taking the time to review our Bliss Blush Balm, Darleen! It is amazing to hear that you love the shade so much. For application, we recommend applying the product with your fingers onto your cheeks and then blending with a brush (our Cheek/Contour Brush works well for this!). This method gives you much more control over the look of your creme blush!
