What it is:
A daily gel cleanser with natural fruit exfoliant that thoroughly but gently lifts impurities and unclogs pores while leaving skin soft and hydrated.

Solutions for:
- Pores
- Dullness and uneven texture
- Oiliness

If you want to know more…
The Deep Cleanse oil-free gel lathers into a creamy foam to lift away dirt, oil, and impurities without over-drying. It cleanses with amino acids derived from silk gentle enough for even the most delicate skin, leaving skin soft, refreshed, and comfortably hydrated.

The formula harnesses the power of the Japanese luffa fruit, a natural beauty multitasker beloved by Japanese women for centuries. Ground fibers from the fruit exfoliate, helping to turn over dead skin cells while purifying and decongesting pores. The fruit extract also beautifies and conditions skin. Japanese wild rose works to visibly tighten pores and smooth skin texture, while Japanese leopard lily helps minimize excess oil.

What else you need to know:
Harvested under a full autumn moon, the water of luffa fruit has been prized as a favorite natural skincare ingredient in Japan since the Edo period. It is beloved for its clarifying and moisturizing properties. When dried and ground, the fruit gently exfoliates to purify and smooth skin texture—the original inspiration for the modern day loofah sponge. The Deep Cleanse harnesses this time-tested ingredient in this refreshing, easy-to-use daily exfoliating cleanser.

This pure, oil-free formula is non-irritating, non-sensitizing, dermatologist tested, and cruelty-free. It is formulated without synthetic fragrances, sulfate detergents, urea, DEA, of TEA.

This product is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner.

What it is:
An ultra-mild, three-in-one bar that cleanses, subtly exfoliates, and heals skin. 

Solutions for:
- Uneven skin tone
- Dullness and uneven texture
- Oiliness

If you want to know more…
This multitasking bar is designed to cleanse effectively while gently removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Drunk Elephant’s unique formulation of thermal mud and bamboo powder creates a wonderful creamy lather that dissolves unwanted oil, rinsing away pore-clogging surface debris and any impurities. It refines skin texture, brightens skin clarity, and over time, helps minimizes the look of pores. 

What else you need to know:
The JuJu Bar is vegan, fragrance- and soap-free, and formulated with skin-friendly ingredients designed to calm and feed the skin while promoting moisture retention. Unlike soap, which has a pH level of 9 or above, the Juju Bar’s ideal pH-level of 6.3 ensures sufficient cleansing without drying or stripping the skin of its protective barrier.

Drunk Elephant is committed to using only clean ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of the formulations. They never take into account an ingredient’s synthetic or natural status, but instead choose based on its safety and bio-compatibility. You won’t find what Drunk Elephant calls "the suspicious six" of any kind in their products (1. silicones, 2. chemical screens, 3. sensitizing colorants/perfumes, 4. sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) 5. essential oils, 6. drying alcohols), making them appropriate for all skin. They believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue. When formulating the products, they focus on pH and toxicity, always making sure that the actives are at efficacious levels. This is the Drunk Elephant difference.

Drunk Elephant is a supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation) and is cruelty-free. 

Research results:
In an independent consumer testing panel of 106 women age 25 to 55:
- 95% found skin felt completely cleansed of impurities and excess oil
- 95% agreed skin felt balanced
- 94% found it effectively exfoliated skin
- 93% agreed skin looked clarified and felt healthier
- 92% found skin felt softer and smoother
