What it is: A deodorant that soothes underarm skin while keeping odor at bay and is free of baking soda, essential oils, and aluminum-derived ingredients.
Skin Type:Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily
- Mandelic Acid: Derived from almonds, mandelic acid is an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) that is both water and lipid-soluble, which is a quality that allows it to penetrate and work within the hair follicle; mandelic acid is also an excellent killer of odor-causing bacteria while being milder to skin than glycolic acid (due to its larger molecule size).
- Arrowroot Powder: Super-absorbent powder derived from the roots of the arrowroot plant.
- Shea Butter: A concentrated butter derived from the shea fruit; shea butter has a complex triglyceride composition that gives its characteristic rich, emollient properties and skin-barrier protection.
What Else You Need to Know:With a powerful blend of mandelic acid and absorbent arrowroot, Sweet Pitti™ eliminates odor-causing bacteria while absorbing excess moisture from skin. A mix of barrier-supportive plant oils and marula and shea butters replenish dry, irritable skin. Sweet Pitti™ has a pH level of 4.0.
Free of sulfates, silicones, essential oils, fragrance, dyes, and drying alcohols.
Drunk Elephant is clean, but in their opinion, "clean" is not enough when it comes to caring for skin. They make "Clean Compatible" skincare. Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of their formulations. They never take into account an ingredient’s synthetic or natural status, but instead choose based on biocompatibility. You won’t find what they call the "Suspicious 6" in their products (essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, and SLS) making them, in their opinion, appropriate for all skin. They believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue we see, and when entirely removed from one’s routine, ("a clean break"), skin can reset and return to a healthy, balanced state. It is equally, if not more, important what they leave out of the products as what they put in. This skin-elimination diet (think Whole30 for your face) inspired the #barewithus Instagram movement, a collection of bare-faced selfies chronicling the Drunk Elephant journeys of people who have found success using the line and renewed confidence in their own skin. When formulating their products, Drunk Elephant focuses on biocompatibility, pH levels, and safety, always making sure that the active ingredients are at efficacious levels and remain respectful and always supportive of skin’s acid mantle.
Drunk Elephant is a supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation) and is cruelty-free.
