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.
I bought this to cover some belly scars occasionally from a recent hernia surgery (I belly dance). It has such great coverage and staying power! On my face it's a little lighter than my summer-complexion (but matches my winter skin tone), but I pair it was some slightly shimmery face powder. The consistency is really nice as well!
This is my go to to cover up breakouts and it covers nicely over the refresh foundation. It never irritates my skin even over stubborn acne. Love this stuff!
Thank you for your review, Sarah! We are elated to hear that our CN2 Creme Revealer has been the perfect addition to your sustainable beauty collection. This product may be little, but it is mighty (and goes a long way)!
I was unsure of my shade so I ordered both the CN4 & CN5. CN4 is tad bit too bright for me but I make it work. CN5 is way too dark for me to use it as a concealer so I cream contour/bronzer product. Overall, I love the product but I wish there were more shades or better swatches on the website.
Thank you for such an honest review, Muskan! We are always looking for ways to improve and appreciate feedback like this. That said, it is amazing to hear that you have turned the CN5 into a creme bronzer! We love when products are multi-use.
My new favourite concealer
I love this concealer - it hides just the right amount of pigmentation and is super easy to use. I am North Indian and CN4 works really well for me.
Thank you for your review, Muskan! We are thrilled to hear that our CW4 Creme Revealer has been working so well for you. We can't wait to see what you try next!
