Meet The Woman Behind Biocompatible Skincare Drunk Elephant

Just like us, she was in search of miracle products that could address all her skin issues



Tiffany Masterson was once just like us, in search of products that could address her skin issues: breakouts, enlarged pores, oily skin and rosacea, to name a few. She was frustrated because nothing she tried worked and if it did, the results were short-lived. But Masterson turned this problem into an opportunity—an opportunity to educate herself about ingredients, how skin reacts to them and the roles they play in skincare. She identified six ingredients that she thought were at the root of her woes: the Suspicious 6TM.

The Suspicious 6TM is made up of essential oils, drying alcohols, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes and sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). Once they were eliminated from her routine, Masterson’s skin returned to a balanced, clear and healthy state. But then she was posed with another challenge: she couldn’t find products that didn’t have at least one of these ingredients. Again, she chose to see this as an opportunity to help herself and, hopefully, others as well. “When skin is exposed to irritants and sensitizers, damage can be imperceptible and cumulative, leaving it in a reactive mode,” explains Masterson. “We believe we have ‘sensitive’ skin, but it’s often really just skin that has become sensitized over time, which is a problem that can be easily addressed.”


For Masterson, the answer to healthy skin was simple. “Keep your products high quality and stay away from the ubiquitous ingredients that are not necessary and seemingly at the root of dysfunctional skin.” Years after listening, learning, researching and self-teaching, she founded Drunk Elephant, a biocompatible skincare brand. Isolating the most effective natural and synthetic ingredients, Drunk Elephant offers products that benefit skin health. It boasts formulations that use a high percentage of active ingredients at skin-friendly pH levels for easier absorption.

Only this time, you won’t have to look further to discover products with an ingredient-elimination philosophy. For a total skin reset, there’s Drunk Elephant.
