What it is:
Babyfacial™ is a pro-quality AHA/BHA “facial” that resurfaces to reveal greater clarity, improved skin texture and tone, and a more youthful radiance. Think of it as an extra nudge for stubborn, dull skin (in other words, it’ll knock your cells off).
What it is formulated to do:
This next-generation mask is an at-home “facial” that effectively yet gently exfoliates the pore lining and resurfaces by getting rid of built-up dead skin cells. With a whopping 25% AHA / 2% BHA blend of our dream team glycolic, tartaric, lactic, citric and salicylic acids, this pro-quality formula dramatically smooths texture while minimizing the look of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. Uniquely formulated with chickpea flour, pumpkin ferment and a soothing antioxidant blend of matchatea, milk thistle and apple, Babyfacial™ delivers incredible brightening and enzymatic action, improves skin’s elastic feel and reveals the look of a more even, radiant baby-soft complexion.
What else you need to know:
Babyfacial™ was created with all skin in mind. Glycolic acids get a bad rap for being sensitizing, but we believe that it’s the pH level and accompanying ingredients (think fragrant oils or high amounts of alcohol) that can be the real problem. We formulated Babyfacial™ at the ideal pH level of 3.5 with a blend of acids that work together synergistically to ensure higher efficacy without the redness and sensitization.
100% Free of essential oils, silicones and fragrance.

The Drunk Elephant Difference
We are committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the health of the skin or support the integrity of our formulations. We never take into account whether something is synthetic or natural, instead choosing ingredients based on biocompatibility. That’s why we focus on healthy pH levels, formulations the skin recognizes, small molecular structure that’s easily absorbed, and effective active ingredients that also support and maintain the skin’s acid mantle. But what we leave out of our products is just as important as what we put into them, so you will never find what we call the Suspicious 6™ (essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, SLS) in our line. We believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue, and when they’re removed entirely from your routine—that is, when you take a Drunk Break™—skin can reset and return to its healthiest, most balanced state. This ingredient-elimination diet benefits all skin types and inspired the #barewithus🐘 Instagram movement, a collection of bare-faced selfies that chronicles the Drunk Elephant journeys of people who have found not only healthier skin but more importantly, healthier self-confidence.
