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.
Love this cleaner, it cleans without stripping my brushes and doesn't leave any oily residue.
Oh Della, we are ELATED to hear that you've been loving your Elate Brush Cleanser! We designed it with rosemary and rose geranium, to make your makeup brush cleaning experience even better. We can't wait to see what else you try!
This stuff is magic. It smells so good and you can just watch the makeup leave your brush. I hadn't washed my brushes in far too long and they have never been cleaner. It was like buying a whole new brush set.
Wow Jordan, thank you so much for your review! We are ELATED that Brush Cleanser has created such an amazing experience for your brushes! The pleasant smell you are experiencing is from the delicate scent of rosemary and rose geranium which are naturally derived ingredients used in this cleanser. We can't wait to hear what you think of our other sustainable essentials.
