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.
Radish Root Ferment Filtrate
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.
The best eyeliner
This is the only liquid I will buy. It is perfect. Love love love the clean lines and colour saturation.
Thank you for your review, Devon! We are so happy to hear that our Origin Liquid Liner has worked so well for you. We bet this liner really makes your eyes pop!
The best eyeliner. Period.
For years I was a pencil only eyeliner user. But Elate changed that because once I watched Melodie apply this liquid liner I had to try it. I only wish I had discovered it sooner. I love it. Once I was scared to mess up while applying. But now I'm a pro thanks to Melodie's tutorial. I'll never go back to pencil now!
What a fantastic review of our Liquid EyeLine, Barbara! We are elated that Melodie's tutorial was so helpful to you and that it helped you find a new sustainable essential for your beauty rituals. We can't wait to see what you try next!
Great vegan and eco friendly eyeliner
I’m a fan of this eyeliner! I love that it’s a cruelty free option, but I do wish it has longer staying power (or was waterproof). I have oily skin, so I have to reapply and fix the eyeliner several times a day.
Hi Peggy! We're thrilled you love our Liquid Eyeliner, but understand that you had some challenges with wear time. Our eyeliner is water resistant, although it can break down quicker on different skin types. We appreciate your feedback and hope we can continue improving our products!
This is a decent eyeliner. There is a bit of a transition period if you are not used to this application method (ex. eyeliner marker), but you get the hang of it pretty quickly. The formula does thicken up a few months after opening, but it still works fine. I agree with other reviews that sometimes you need apply a second layer, but I experienced this with other eyeliners from different brands. I personally enjoy this eyeliner and will continue to purchase it.
Hi Melissa, thank you for your review! We're so glad that you've discovered Elate and are giving us a try. Sometimes a new formula takes a bit of getting use to, we're so glad that you have found the right method for you!
I did find myself having to add a second layer to fill in some areas where the eyeliner was gappy, and I find a tapered handle easier to use, but I'm happy to make the switch.
Hi Brittany. Thank you for your feedback of our vegan Liquid Eyeliner in Origin! So glad to hear that you are giving this method a try, as it does sometimes take a bit of getting use to. We are always here to support you in feeling your best self!
