Building a sustainable future starts with transparent practices. Elate ingredients are carefully chosen for efficacy and sustainability. Our ethical supply chain means we prioritize people and the planet, and balance performance with purpose.

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.
This is a great eye crayon
I purchased Evolve and it is a lovely color. It goes on smoothly and is easily smudged for a smoky look that easily works during the daytime. This has been one of my go to products this summer. I will be trying out Merit next.
We're thrilled that you love our EyeColour pencil so much, Jenny! Evolve is the perfect shade for every day, with the versatility of creating a bolder look when you want to. We can't wait for you to try Merit, it will look amazing on you!
I was so excited when I discovered that Elate had a cream based eye colour! I think I had overlooked them because they are in pencil format instead of a pot. These have now become my go-to products since I'm a busy mom. Mystic and Merit are my favourites, but I just added Glitz and Evolve to my collection and am excited to try them out!
Hi Robyn! Wow, what a glowing review of our EyeColour Pencils. We appreciate that you took the chance to try a pencil format and ended up falling in love. Mystic and Merit are stunning shades...perfect for a busy mom on the go! We hope you love Evolve and Glitz just as much.
I love these. They are easy to use and travel is easy and very versatile.
Thank you for your review, Kimberly! It is amazing to hear that our EyeColour Pencils have found a home in your sustainable beauty collection and are working so well for you. We can't wait to see what you try next!
Strive and Gleam
Great colours! Very soft and easy to apply.
So glad that you've been loving your new EyeColour Pencils, Louise!
I use this as an eyeshadow and highlighter, love it
Thank you for your review of our EyeColour Pencil! We love that you are taking advantage of how multi-use this product can be by using it as an eye shade and highlight. We can't wait to see what you try next!
