Brand values


Elate are extremely animal conscious. This is shown by 100% of its products being vegan. They’ve also gained certifications by both Leaping Bunny and PeTA to show their full commitment to animal welfare.

The mica used in Elate products is fair trade and sourced from suppliers who are active members of the Responsible Mica Initiative and Elate do use RSPO certified palm oil in some of their products. This means it is responsibly managed and audited regularly.

Their website states that they prioritise making their ingredients fair trade if being both organic and fair trade is not possible. This is because it’s critical to Elate that every person involved in the making of their cosmetics is treated ethically and fairly.

Elate donate 2% of their net earnings. 1% towards social initiatives, that support charities helping people around the globe. The other 1% goes to environmental initiatives, including planting one tree for each order they receive.
