An innovative jelly cleanser that removes all traces of makeup, excess oil, pollution and any other grime from the day. Free of SLS, fragrance and essential oils, Beste™ No. 9 is totally non-irritating, non-sensitizing and appropriate for every skin type.
With a unique blend of mild surfactants and makeup dissolving emollients, this gentle formula rinses away without an ounce of residue, leaving skin clean and soft.
Beste™ No. 9 is formulated at an ideal, non-stripping pH level of 5.5.
100% Free of essential oils, silicones and fragrance.
Squeeze Beste™ No. 9 into palm and gently massage over wet or dry skin. Add water to lather. Rinse well and pat dry. Use nightly or in alternation with the other Drunk Elephant cleansers.
Tip: We recommend skipping the morning cleanse, as it’s not necessary if you’ve cleansed your skin the night before.
- mild surfactant blend: a stack of mild cleansing agents, including coconut-based surfactants rich in fatty acids, that work together to create a rich foam that effectively dissolves even stubborn makeup, sunscreen and oils while supporting the healthy barrier of skin.
- virgin marula oil: high in critical antioxidants and omegas 6 and 9, this nourishing oil boosts the cleansing and makeup-removal power.
- glycerin: a skin-identical humectant, helps replenish hydration levels that are normally lost in skin during the cleansing process.
- cucumis melo cantalupensis (cantaloupe) fruit extract: rich in antioxidants, helps soothe and hydrate.

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.
