Drunk Elephant is a natural skincare brand. All of Drunk Elephant skincare products are made without, what they call the Suspicious 6: essential oils, drying alcohols, silicons, chemical screens, fragrance/dyes
Is Drunk Elephant Cruelty-Free?
Drunk Elephant is cruelty-free! Drunk Elephant is certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny. Drunk Elephant does not test their products or ingredients on animals, anywhere in the world.
It should be noted that Drunk Elephant is now owned by Shiseido, a parent corporation that does test on animals when required by law in 2019.
In October 2019, Shiseido acquired Drunk Elephant. Shiseido is not a cruelty-free corporation as they do test on animals when required by law. However, Drunk Elephant states they will remain cruelty-free and has no plans to sell their products in-stores in mainland China where animal testing is required by law for all imported cosmetics.
“Drunk Elephant will always remain
We are @leapingbunnyprogram certified, and have never, nor will we ever, animal test or allow our products to be tested on animals.”
Is Drunk Elephant Vegan?
Not all of Drunk Elephant skincare products are suitable for vegans as some contain beeswax, honey, and/or seashell derivatives, but Drunk Elephant does offer some vegan products that do not contain any animal-derived ingredients or by-products.
Please reference below for a list of Drunk Elephant vegan products.
In addition, Drunk Elephant also provided me with a list of their products that are not suitable for vegans and why, which you can at the bottom of this post.
I love supporting cruelty-free brands that are so transparent about the source of their ingredients like Drunk Elephant!
