MISSION

Drunk Elephant,  Isolates the most effective ingredients that directly benefit the health of skin.  Drunk Elephant see this as an ingredient elimination philosophy for a total skin reset. Using these products exclusively is the best way to get maximum results.

We are committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the health of the skin or support the integrity of our formulations. We never take into account whether something is synthetic or natural, instead choosing ingredients based on biocompatibility.

The Suspicious 6

We believe six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue we see––essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, SLS––and when they're entirely removed from one’s routine (when you take a #drunkbreak🐘), skin can reset and return to a healthy, balanced state. That’s our ingredient-elimination philosophy for a total skin reset.

Skincare “Smoothies”

We think of our skincare routines as smoothies. They’re good for you, they’re easy to mix, and you can change up the recipe whenever you want. Plus, all of our products are biocompatible and bioavailable, which means they’re highly absorbable.

Drunk Head to Toe

Skin is skin—and whether we call it the scalp or the eye area or the legs, it can only function at its healthiest when it’s treated with smart, nourishing, biocompatible ingredients. So we decided to make a line of hair-care and body products that followed one simple idea: Respect the skin by only using ingredients it can get along with.

 

We are part of the Shiseido Group, and in joining Drunk Elephant you will not only receive industry, leading training in all things skin, a generous discount on our amazing award winning products and the chance to be part of a fast growing visionary brand – you join an incredible group network of brands, where developing our people is at the heart of our business.
