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.
Lovely concealer, silly packaging
I love the concealer, does a good job brightening under my eye and doesn't cause milia. The packaging is just not functional for a makeup bag in my opinion. I leave mine out on the counter cause it just opens up when I put it in my bag. I know y'all are trying to be earth friendly, but a reusable plastic, or wood container with an actual latch would be far more functional.
Hi Cristina! Thanks for your review. These cases are meant to keep your product safe on its way to you, but we do offer palettes and compacts for them to be inserted into: https://elatebeauty.com/collections/palettes And good news! We'll be offering a single compact size that will fit just your concealer for easy transport in September.
Best concealer ever!
Not enough product
The color and coverage are great, I’m just going through the tin too quickly!
I've been a longtime fan of another brand's concealer but in a pinch I tried Elates. Not only was this a better color match. It also blends and builds much better.
I love these products. The price point is a tad on the higher end but I think it's worth the money for clean, high quality, eco friendly makeup that lasts me a long time. I keep coming back! I specifically love the eye pencils! Goes on so smooth.
