Don't Blame It On The Elephant

March 06, 2018

Protini, Lala, B-Hydra, Babyfacial, Shaba, C-Firma, Umbra, Tinte, TLC Framboos and Marula Oil

A good question we get constantly:

Question: “I’ve seen that when people tell you your products are breaking them out, you always try to blame it on other brands. I don’t think that’s always the case, and wonder why you can’t just admit that your line may not be for everyone.”

 

Answer: "Hi. It’s because I believe my line IS for everyone...skin is skin. I don’t believe in skin “types”, and I must be honest about my philosophy when I answer people. It doesn’t mean they need to agree. When you understand the basic function of skin and you have a strong opinion on which ingredients disrupt that function, it becomes clear. It’s never about blaming other brands for me, it’s about blaming ingredients (which I think everyone should be doing, being their own advocate, instead of accepting dysfunctional skin). I know my formulations very well. I have chosen each ingredient thoughtfully, I know what they are technically likely to do and not do. I think most people are using products that contain problematic ingredients, which I believe are to blame for most skin issues.

Imagine if you consumed 2 bottles of 🍷, a 🍔, and 6 🍩s one night. Your body would be sluggish, reactive and hungover because it cannot process what you’ve given it. If you wake up and drink a green juice, your body might have a negative reaction. Logically, most people don’t blame it on the green juice, they know it’s because they are hungover. I believe when skin has a negative reaction to a product with clean ingredients, that it’s likely based on the state the skin was already in due to what you’ve been putting on it… it’s become sensitized, or “hungover".

So look at the whole picture. What you’ve already been using matters and no product, including mine, can overcome bad ingredients in your routine. Your product is only as good as its worst ingredient; your routine only as good as its worst product. My hope is to help people recover the health of their skin but if they are using any products that contain the #Suspicious6, it will be difficult to get there.”

Everyone And Their Mother Should Try Drunk Elephant!

April 30, 2014

Mother's Day is on its way and Drunk Elephant is the perfect gift for any Mom...and I know because I'm a Mom!

  • The Virgin Marula is ideal for the Mom who wants to calm, heal and hydrate throughout the day.  She can use it on her cuticles, in her hair...from her head to her toes.  It's luxurious and she will feel totally pampered. 
  • The Juju and Pekee Bars are wonderful for the Mom who loves the old-fashioned way of cleansing and likes to keep things simple.  They both do their jobs really well...Juju exfoliates and Pekee cleanses dirt and makeup away at the end of the day.  Your Mom's face will feel fresh in the hot months to come.
  • The C-Firma Day Serum is for the Mom who loved to worship the sun in her younger days, or for a younger Mom who spends a lot of time outside.  It corrects and prevents sun damage.  Her skin will feel and look firmer and best of all, will appear brighter!  What Mom would turn that down?
  • The Umbra Sheer Physical Defense.  An anti-aging, antioxidant-packed, moisturizing, illuminating, protective, non-toxic, chemical-screen-free sunscreen.  Need we say more?  This one is for every Mom.
  • The T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Night Serum will give your Mom a smoother and more radiant complexion...practically overnight!  It gently dissolves the glue that hold the dead skin cells to the surface of the skin that nobody really wants hanging around.  It's very effective, but won't irritate.  Mom will be positively glowing and thanking you for it!
  • And, finally, for the picky Mom...you know, the one who knows best.  The one who is super conscious about what she is putting on her skin.  The one who cares about ingredients.  The one who wants to avoid toxins.  The Drunk Elephant Gift Card allows her to browse through all of the products and choose for herself.  She won't have any problem finding something she loves...I promise!

I hope this helps make shopping for the Mom in your life a little easier this year.

Riddle: The More You Use It, The More You Need It. What Is It?

March 25, 2014

It could be a lot of things, but my guess is makeup. Foundation, mineral powder, concealer...all designed to cover up various skin issues and conditions, but is it a vicious cycle? Does the very use of makeup create a dependency? I was lucky because my mother never wore makeup, so I just grew up not thinking about it or wanting to use it. It’s possible that it ended up being a really good thing for my skin. 

I was very inspired by the question: “Is makeup at the root of some of our skin ailments?” There are differing views on this and it’s been widely debated. I personally believe that wearing makeup on a daily basis is a problem and so one of the goals for the D.E. line was to enable people to go without and let their skin breathe and heal.  So, what exactly does it take to restore skin health? I researched until I came up with a list of things I think we must have in our daily routine. Here is my list:

"All Natural" Skin Care Isn't All Good

February 04, 2014

The term "all-natural" is all over the place these days. I questioned what it really meant when I figured out that the "all-natural" products I was using were making my skin blotchy and oily, my rosacea flare up and my pores more visible. It wasn't just the "all-natural" products that were doing this to my skin, but the expensive clinical products, too. Since my teen years, it feels like I’ve tried every product out there, and most have left me irritated and broken out – even the ones I purchased from a dermatologist.

Glycolic T.L.C. Framboos™...a dreamy product come true!

August 28, 2013

 

 

This could be my favorite child.  I don't know, maybe because it's the "baby", the last to be formulated, the last piece of the puzzle.  Whatever it is, it came out exactly as I had hoped.
