ABOUT THE BRAND: You won’t find what Drunk Elephant calls the “Suspicious 6” in any of their products (essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrance/dyes, and SLS)—so they’re appropriate for all skin types. The brand is also a big supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation) and is cruelty-free.
