We’ve been hearing a lot about skincare brand Drunk Elephant and company founder Tiffany Masterson has now launched into the UK – great news!
Prior to launching the skin brand, Tiffany suffered from various skin issues. After trying out various brands, she found most of their products to caused further irritation. Therefore she launched a brand that eliminated fragrances from their products. They don’t add anything to mask their natural scents and just smell of what they are – all natural!
Part of Drunk Elephant’s appeal is the products are filled with goodness and they do not include the “suspicious 6” – 6 ingredients that are most commonly irritating to most skin types:
- Essential Oils
- Drying Alcohols
- Chemical Screens
Even though their products are high concentrations of active ingredients (both natural and synthetic) in their products, none of them will hurt your skin!
The Benefits of Drunk Elephant Serum
The products are designed to mix with one another and therefore be worn in any order. They are also for every skin type because of the way the brand formulates its “clean” ingredients.
Vitamin C is known as one of the superstars of skincare. Therefore a vitamin C serum to your skincare routine is one of the best things you can do for your skin. It’s a potent antioxidant that can help to smooth your skin, fade sun spots, increase firmness and elasticity, brighten skin tone, and also protect skin from further damage.
Drunk Elephant’s serum contains a concentration of 15% L-ascorbic acid, the form of vitamin C that has the most clinical research behind it and has brightening and anti-ageing properties. The vitamin C in the formula stabilises with ferulic acid and vitamin E, both of which are potent antioxidants themselves. However, this serum also contains other beneficial botanical ingredients and moisturizers. Drunk Elephant C-Firma is cruelty-free and is free of silicones, fragrance, alcohol, and parabens.

Origins of Drunk Elephant
The name Drunk Elephant is rooted in a myth that elephants love to eat the fruit that has fallen from Marula trees and inside their large tummies it ferments making the elephants drunk! Marula oil is a key ingredient in Druk Elephant products, straight from the “pip”.
What Is Marula Oil?
This antioxidant-rich “luxiry” oil comes from the fruits of the Marula tree. It contains antioxidants, hydrates the skin and helps restore a radiant tone. Drunk Elephant products contain only cold-pressed virgin African Marula oil and is 100% unrefined. Marula Oil is rich in essential fatty acids Omega 9 – oleic and Omega 6 – linoleic that deeply hydrate and reduce redness. They also nourish, heal, moisturise, and improve skin elasticity, whilst reducing skin water loss and increasing smoothness. Best of all, it works wonders on breakouts, believe it or not!
