Looking for a flawless finish but worried about how makeup may affect your skin? The Organic Pressed Powder Foundation from Elate Cosmetics not only masks redness and evens out skintone, but also promotes a healthy and clear complexion. Key ingredients like bamboo extracts soothe irritation while argan and coconut oils hydrate and enhance your natural glow. This elegant bamboo compact is refillable and once finished, a new foundation palette arrives in plantable seed paper! To build full coverage, use a powder foundation brush and swirl the minerals onto clean and moisturized skin. For medium coverage, use a sponge. Use a loose powder brush for light coverage and for setting creme products.
B Corp
The B Lab is a third-party, non-profit organization that certifies companies as socially and environmentally responsible. B Corps are businesses that go above and beyond traditional business models and aim to create positive change in the world through their practices.

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!

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. 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.

Only Ok

Good, not great. The powder has good coverage and I like the packaging but it gets hard-panned every time I use it and it can look like it's on top of my skin rather than blending into my skin.

Turned bad

The foundation was great until I dropped it and one of the latches broke so the mirror is hanging on my one side instead of attached to both. Also, I can’t finish it because it turned to a super hard consistency. I would attach a photo of what it looks like if I can. I’ve been trying to use the rest of it but it won’t come off the pan, so the rest is wasted. :/

Hey Lauren, we are so sorry to hear that your palette broke! Someone from our team will be in touch to help out!

Heavy or Light Coverage

This powder does allow you to layer more to get fuller coverage or go a little lighter, which works for whatever you may be doing. I do feel like it makes me break out since it tends to sit in my pores (I do have more open pores on my face so it may not do that if you don't.) That is why I gave it a 4. I do like that the color seems to blend with my summer skin color (sand) but haven't tried any colors to match my winter skin tone. I do love that it has organic ingredients and is cleaner than most but I don't like how expensive it is and you don't even get a sponge with it. The case doesn't even have a place for a sponge, which makes it difficult to bring along for touch ups since I am using my old power container to house my sponge to take on the road. Haven't decided if I will buy again.

Doesn’t work for me

The powder doesn't come onto the brush. I chatted with Earthhero about this; they said they would get back to me the next day; and it's been a week and I haven't heard anything. Very disappointed. The bamboo vase for the powder is nice but the quality of the powder is the most important thing.

Hi Jennifer! We apologize that this powder seems to be a bit defective and that you don't have your replacement yet! Our team is reaching out now to get your order straightened out.

Love this powder! It's very

Love this powder! It's very light but covers really well. The case (and concept of refillable) is also so cute and amazing.
