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.
This serum/primer is excellent! It keeps my make up looking great all day - and my skin feeling great!
Thank you for your reviewing our Prep Primer, Sarah. This product is one of our favourites as well and we are so glad it has been working so well for your skin!
Love this serum before makeup. It's refreshing and a little goes a long way. I sometimes use it without makeup when I just need a refresh!
Thank you for such a lovely review, Lydia. Prep is a favorite among our team, and we're so honoured that you're found a place for it in your beauty bag. Enjoy having hydrated and protected skin!
New favorite product
I was hesitant to try a new primer as I was addicted to a specific brand that I'd used for years. I noticed my skin has been super dry lately but I was also breaking out a lot more. I decided to try the Elate primer because I felt like my other primer just highlighted dry spots on my face. I got the trial size of the Elate priming serum and fell absolutely in love. It has a faint smell that I absolutely love (seriously, it smells so nice). It makes my skin feel soft and smooth. Sometimes, if my skin is feeling irritated, I put this primer on (even if I'm not putting on any other makeup) because it just soothes my skin and makes it feel so much better.
Thank you for your kind review, Lydia! We are thrilled that you gave our Prep Primer a try. This product is one of our absolute favourites, and we are so glad that it is now one of yours as well!
Great primer for your makeup
This is a great primer. I received it first in the foundation sample kit and I decided to purchase a full bottle. It goes on well and after you let it dry it preps your skin for the foundation. I find that I still see a bit of shine especially on my forehead but that's probably because I have combination skin and the T-zone always gets a bit oily. I find that I could probably get away with just using that but I would still prefer to put on a moisturizer before applying this. So I'm on the lookout for one as the Replenish oil seems to irritate my eyes.
Thank you for taking the time to review our Prep Primer, Kasia! This product is essential to any beauty ritual and we are so glad that you love it as much as we do! If you are still finding that your skin is a little shiny, we highly recommend using a dusting of our Unify Loose Powder to mattify your look. This powder also works to mattify any shine that may appear throughout the day!
Hydrating, smooth, easy application- all around great primer and buying my second bottle!
What a lovely review of our hydrating Prep Primer, Lindsay. It's an honour to hear that you love it so much, you've moved on to your second bottle!
