Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of our formulations. We never take into account an ingredient’s synthetic or natural status, but instead choose based on biocompatibility. You won’t find what we call the “Suspicious 6” in our products (Essential Oils, Drying Alcohols, Silicones, Chemical Screens, Fragrance/Dyes and SLS,) making them, in our opinion, appropriate for all skin. We believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue we see. When formulating the products, we focus on pH levels and safety, and always making sure that the active ingredients are at efficacious levels. This is the Drunk Elephant difference.
Ratings & Reviews
I enjoy trying all different brands and types of cleaners, and have made my rounds through luxury lines and drugstore products. I have to say that this cleanser has my attention, and has become my new favorite. I was skeptical about the jelly texture at first, but have become used to it after about a week after use. Also wasn't sure I was going to love it because it has no scent, but it has not bothered me, and it allows my husband to use it as well. This cleanser does a fantastic job of taking off all makeup (including mascara and liner), without drying out my skin. I am 35 yrs old, and would consider my skin type combination and sometimes sensitive. No problems to this point. I have a few other products from DE, and so far I am impressed with their effectiveness and the fact that they are free of chemicals and kind to animals. Have not yet tried DE's bar soaps, but planning on testing out in the future. Until then, I would highly recommend this product! Thank you DE!
I thought a cleanser like this couldn’t exist! I’m not the type to write reviews but I had to write one for this because I can’t believe how awesome it is. Finally, a cleanser that will remove all of my makeup in one rinse and not dry out and irritate my sensitive skin! I thought I had to use a less effective cream formula, and then this came along like it was made especially for me. If you’re hesitating on trying it, don’t!
