Paraben Free

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Phthalate Free

Phthalates are found in toys, electronics, personal care products, plastic wraps, containers, and more. These petroleum based chemicals help soften plastics, and bind fragrances to perfumes, deodorants, creams, and other personal care products. Phthalates are are not chemically bound, meaning they can easily get released into the air, water, or your body, just by using the products as intended. Phthalates have been found to disrupt the endocrine system, which can cause reproductive damage, hormonal imbalances, infertility, mood changes, metabolism changes, and more.

As a member of the grass family, bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth. It requires no irrigation, pesticides or fertilizers to grow, and can be harvested within 3-5 years, as compared to approximately 30+ years for traditional hardwoods. Bamboo is extremely adaptable and produces more oxygen per acre than large tree species, while using a fraction of the water to grow. Its durable and lightweight qualities make bamboo a great alternative for hard wood products!

Recycled Packaging

This product is packaged or shipped in materials that contain recycled content.

A good makeup brush is essential for creating any look. But… most makeup brushes are made from wasteful plastic handles with animal hair bristles that aren't sustainably sourced. Unlike the other guys, the Bamboo Multi-Use Makeup Brush from Elate Cosmetics relies on eco-friendly materials like ethically sourced bamboo and Taklon bristles to create their high-quality makeup brushes. Vegan and cruelty-free, the Taklon bristles are a synthetic alternative to animal fur, and they are naturally nonRead More-porous, anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic for a flawless makeup application. Plus, they dry faster than typical bristles! With a beautiful bamboo handle, this blending brush flawlessly blends liquids, creams, and powders for a soft, streak-free finish.

    great brush!

    I love elate’s products and was willing to spend the extra money to get this brush over a cheap one. I’m glad I did- the brush is extremely soft and there hasn’t been any shedding! I use it to apply elate’s mattifying powder- works great! Do wish the bristles weren’t synthetic, but, hey, they’re doing their best and this brush appears as if it will last a very long time.

    Love this brush


    I bought this brush directly through elate, but I love Earthhero so I wanted to share my thoughts on it here. It is such a soft and durable brush, and perfect for both powder and liquid foundation. The bristles are made of plastic, but the company does amazing things and uses plastic free packaging- also vegan! And they’re super soft. I’ve only ever bought cheap Elf brushes that broke/shedded easily, but this purchase was worth it. Pro tip- you can wash it by rubbing it on a wet bar of castile soap like Dr. Bronner’s.

  3. Question


    This should not be labeled as “sustainable”. The bristles are synthetic aka PLASTIC. Plastic never biodegrades. Yes, the handle is bamboo but plastic bristles outweigh the bamboo in my opinion. Advertise as vegan sure, but not sustainable.

      Hi, Mandy! Thank you for your honest review. At EarthHero we provide options for people to shop based on their values- This means some items that are not fully compostable, but others that are, and even more that fall into other important sustainability categories 🙂 We love Elate for their thoroughly sustainable and ethical tactics- even the mica in their products is fair trade! While plastic isn’t a sustainable dream by any means, with proper care, these very durable and high-quality brushes are meant to last for years and years compared to lower quality, all plastic brushes. As many people don’t choose to use animal hair on their faces, we like this option for its durability and vegan properties. We haven’t found a good makeup brand offering biodegradable or ethically sourced natural bristles (yet) but when we do, you know they will be added to the site 🙂

    Perfect multi-use brush. I deeply appreciate that the bristles are synthetic (aka cruelty free). Distributes loose/pressed powder extremely well!
