What Else You Need to Know: Formulated with biocompatible ingredients including pro-vitamin B5, pineapple ceramide, and a lentil/apple/watermelon complex, this lightweight serum delivers steady hydration all day as it diminishes drabness, dryness, and the look of fine lines. Your skin will appear healthy, brighter, and more youthful looking.
Drunk Elephant difference: Drunk Elephant is clean, but in their opinion, "clean" is not enough when it comes to caring for skin. They make "Clean Compatible" skincare. Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of their formulations. They never take into account an ingredient’s synthetic or natural status, but instead choose based on biocompatibility. You won’t find what they call the “Suspicious 6” in their products (essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, and SLS) making them, in their opinion, appropriate for all skin. They believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue we see, and when entirely removed from one’s routine, ("a clean break"), skin can reset and return to a healthy, balanced state. It is equally, if not more, important what they leave out of the products as what they put in. This ingredient-elimination diet (think Whole30 for your face) inspired the #barewithus Instagram movement, a collection of bare-faced selfies chronicling the Drunk Elephant journeys of people who have found success using the line and renewed confidence in their own skin. When formulating their products, Drunk Elephant focuses on biocompatibility, pH levels, and safety, always making sure that the active ingredients are at efficacious levels and remain respectful and always supportive of skin’s acid mantle.
Drunk Elephant is a supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation) and is cruelty-free.
Clinical Results: In an independent consumer testing panel of 50 women ages 25 to 55:

- 94% found skin had a healthy glow

Since 2012, Drunk Elephant has pioneered a skin- and haircare philosophy that is as radical as it is simple. Get rid of anything that is irritating, sensitizing, or inflammatory—and replace it with smart, biocompatible ingredients the skin recognizes and embraces. We call the culprits the Suspicious 6—essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrance/dyes, and SLS—and you will never find any of them in our line. Instead, we formulate our products with smart, biocompatible ingredients that are powerful, safe, and reset the skin and hair to its healthiest, most balanced, most radiant state.
