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.
As with a lot of the other customers, I use this brow balm every day!! I switched from some not so eco-friendly alternatives and really love this. Picture is a testament to my daily use lol
Thank you for your review, Anusha! We are honoured to be included in your daily beauty rituals and are so glad that our Brow Balm is so loved by you! Thank you for being a part of our community.
This is the best brow product I've ever used. I like my brows thick, but natural looking. This brow balm achieves both perfectly. I used to use a pencil, so applying with a brush took some getting used to, but Elate's brow brush is also awesome. Bonus - I can't believe how often I get complimented on my eyebrows since using this product!
Wow, what a fantastic review of our Brow Balm! Thank you so much, Sarah. We are so happy that our Brow Balm and Brow Brush are the perfect pair for your beauty rituals. Your brows must look beautiful!
The only thing I use in my brows
I tried to make eyebrow pencils, markers, etc, work for years. Then I discovered this brow balm. It gives me full, natural looking brows. Between this brow balm and the elate blush (my two daily essentials), my makeup routine takes about 1 minute. Love it.
Thank you for your review, Sarah! Our Brow Balm is definitely essential for any beauty ritual. We are so happy that it has been working so well for you! Your brows must look so stunning.
Love love love
I'm used to using brow pencils so I wasn't sure what to expect but I'm so happy I gave this product a go! I have dark hair but I don't like when my eyebrows are too dark and this shade is perfect.
Hi Josie, thanks for another great review! Our Brow Balm fills in the brows while keeping everything in place. It's one of our favorite products, so we're thrilled that you're a fan. We look forward to seeing you again when it's time for a refill@
A Beauty Essential
As someone who constantly struggles with my eyebrows wiping off, I have tried numerous brands of similar products and this one not only holds up as the best, but also the sustainable aspect makes it a #1 in my book. The colour well suits my olive skin and medium-brown hair. It may look small but it lasts! I've had mine for months and am just recently buying a refill. I could not be more impressed. Will continue to buy and expand my elate cosmetics collection.
Thank you for taking the time to write such a kind review, Tash! We are thrilled to hear that our Smoke Brow Balm has been working so well for your beauty ritual.
