Key Ingredients

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.

Argan Shell Powder

A micro zest that is a 100% natural pigment made exclusively from the shells of the argan nut.

Bamboo Stem Extract

Used as an emollient, moisturizer, to boost cellular renewal and restore elasticity to the skin.

Hyaluronic Acid

Attracts and holds water moisture in the skin, holding approximately 1000x its weight in water.

Radish Root Ferment Filtrate

An alternative to potentially harmful preservatives, this is a natural antimicrobial preservative.

Recycling program

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.

The Elate Standard


Ethical ingredients

All of our ingredients are vegan and cruelty-free. We follow the EU standards for safety (the most stringent on the planet) and source our ingredients from fair-trade and ethical sources.

Sustainable packaging

Over 95% of our packaging is reusable, recyclable or plantable—and we’re working on the other 5%. Our vision: To create a world without single-use cosmetics packaging.

Responsible marketing

We believe beauty is inclusive. By representing diversity in our marketing, we can empower beauty in all its shapes and shades, enhancing confidence and reducing overconsumption.

FAQs

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.

Beautiful Shade

I decided to purchase this item for my mom actually as I not only wanted to get her a higher quality foundation that had better ingredients and is low-waste, but also one that was more accurate to her shade and undertone as I found her old conventional foundation left her looking somewhat gray and washed out. She absolutely loves this foundation and it looks so beautiful on her maturing skin, so much so that I ended up ordering samples myself to eventually get a bottle of my own as my jar of Uplift foundation is on the brink of being all gone.

Love this product!

I absolutely love this product. It goes on smooth, provides a beautiful light, glory finish and you can feel great about the ingredients. Elate is also so helpful in helping you find your perfect shade both through their consultations and their sample packs. I can say enough good things, try this foundation! My only suggestion would be considering changing the bottle to be a simple jar and lid similar to their other foundation. I find it really difficult to get all of the refresh foundation out of the jar with the current pump method which contributes to some waste. Otherwise love this product!!

Has potential

My main issue with this foundation is that it does not last long term wear. After a couple of hours, the main area that I notice is that I start to have creases on the corners of my nose, and it wears off on the tip of my nose. It also does not apply well/blend into my skin (not meaning color, more like clumpy) and I’ve tried a few different applicator brushes, but not one from here, so maybe that would help. I would rather use what I already have though as that is more sustainable. I like some of the other products I have tried! Just not this one, I would not buy this again :/

Hi Lauren, We are so happy that you have included us in your ethical beauty rituals, but understand that the Refresh Foundation was not what you were expecting. This foundation usually has a very creamy texture and melts right into the skin, so there is a chance you may have received a defective bottle if this hasn't been your experience. We would love the opportunity to send you a replacement Refresh. Please email us at support@elatebeauty.com or give us a call, so we can make that happen for you!

Great Color Match!

Love this foundation besides the ethical reasons, I love how my skin looks when wearing it. I pair it with the concealer and pressed foundation powder my skin looks flawless and glowy covering any imperfections. Thanks for helping me find my color match!

Love this product!

I love this foundation! Have been using it for well over a year now. A nice light foundation that is buildable if I want/need more coverage some days. I usually use just one pump a day, applied with a brush, so the bottle lasts me a long time.

Thank you for your review, Brittany! We are elated that our Refresh Foundation has been such a great addition to your sustainable beauty ritual. We can't wait to see you when it is time to pick up a Refresh Refill!
