Empty, clean, mail, repeat
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 concealer it’s blends well and provides coverage for blemishes and undereyes
It was easy to blend the concealer in with my finger but I wouldn't consider it buildable or "full coverage." I have dark under-eye circles and some acne so this concealer is definitely too sheer for me. The concealer runs out super quickly if you need to use as much as I do multiple days a week. I do love what the brand is doing and this is probably perfect for those with clear skin.
Good But Not My Favorite
It was easy to blend the concealer in with my finger but I wouldn't consider it buildable or "full coverage."

I do love what the brand is doing and this is probably perfect for those with clear skin. Also, the packaging is very flimsy and no longer stays closed. I didn't buy a compact because I wanted to see if I liked it first, the compact is definitely a must if you decide to keep using this product!
My favourite concealer ever!!
Perfect balance between coverage and natural texture. Stays in place all day. I also find that the color and finish bring a little luminosity to the eyes. I couldn't live without it for my daily makeup.
