The Elate Edit
Not only is Elate Cosmetics a sustainable Canadian beauty brand, every Elate product is also ethically made in Canada–Manitoba to be exact! Much like knowing where your food grows and where it is handled, it’s just as important to have the same knowledge about the cosmetics you apply each day.
Elate HQ is positioned in downtown Victoria BC, on the unceded territory of the Lewungen peoples, Songhees, Esquimalt, and WSANEC peoples and we recognize our privilege to be here.
Canadian beauty brand–Made in Canada
The first stage of Elate’s product development comes from YOU! We’re always listening to what our community wants and expects from Elate. From there, we pull the entire team together to collaborate (that’s right–marketing, fulfillment, customer support, operations...everyone is involved!) and we decide on products, shades, and names as a collective.
Once products are decided on, we work closely with our product development team in Manitoba who resources the most ethical and sustainable vegan ingredients available to create a safe and effective product that we know you’ll love!
The final step of product development is the testing process. As a vegan and cruelty-free cosmetics company, we test EVERY PRODUCT on participating members of our team. From skin sensitivities, allergies, and personal preference–Elate Cosmetics are ONLY tested on humans to provide transparent feedback.
Sustainably packaged in Canada
Using low waste and sustainable packaging, your Elate favourites are packaged and shipped–with kindness–for you (and the planet) in mind from right here in the “Great White North”.
Our fulfillment team in Victoria, BC packages your order with care, in the most precise-sized box made of post-consumer paper, while still preparing your package to arrive at your doorstep efficiently.
Supporting Canadian small businesses
As a small business ourself, we are honoured to support our incredible Canadian small business partners who provide opportunities to their local economies from Nanaimo to Newfoundland! These Canadian small businesses make up over 70% of our total Elate Cosmetics retailers! (June 2020).
We’re extremely grateful to be a vegan beauty brand in Canada! It’s an honour to help support Canadian small business, local economies, and provide safe and effective cosmetics for your sustainable beauty rituals.
