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!

    Way too transparent and liquidy

    lindsayorigami (verified owner)

    I love this brand and it’s ethics, but I do not like this product at all! First off, almost every time I use the pump there must be seen air bubble or something because it more often than not spits out a big glob all over the place. I’ve gotten it on my clothes so many times because of this. Luckily it’s so opaque and thin so I’m able to get it off with a little work. Which leaves me with the other issues I have with this.
    It’s very liquidy which would be fine if it was actually pigmented enough. It looks like I have nothing on after I rub it all over my face. Even shaking the bottle very well doesn’t help with its ability to cover anything.
    I do really like the cream concealer this company offers, so I will definitely continue buying that, but this product I would not purchase again.

      Hi Lindsay – Thank you for this review! We’re sorry you aren’t loving this foundation! It is definitely one of Elate’s more sheer coverage options. You may be interested in their Uplift Creme Foundation, which has medium coverage and is very buildable. 😀
