What Else You Need to Know: The Sweet BiomeTM Fermented Sake Hydrating Spray is your anytime balancing and replenishing solution for a visibly stronger, healthier acid mantle and microbiome. Use it to recharge your skin with substances that defend against biome bullies— pollution, blue light, and UV-generated environmental free radicals and irritants—and help restore hydration and moisture levels.
This product has a pH level of 4.5 and is free of essential oils, silicones, and fragrance.
Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the health of the skin or support the integrity of their formulations. The brand focuses on healthy pH levels, formulations the skin recognizes, small molecular structure that’s easily absorbed, and effective active ingredients that also support the skin’s acid mantle. All of their products are designed to be mixed together—what Drunk Elephant calls making a smoothie. (This is true for all of their products except their sunscreen, Umbra, which sits on top of the skin, protecting it from UV damage.) The result is skin that is reset to its happiest, healthiest state.
Drunk Elephant is a supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation) and is cruelty-free.

About the Brand
Since 2012, Drunk Elephant has pioneered a skin- and hair-care philosophy that is as radical as it is simple. Get rid of anything that is irritating, sensitizing, disruptive, or inflammatory, and replace it with smart, biocompatible ingredients the skin recognizes and embraces. We call the culprits the Suspicious 6—essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, and SLS—and you will never find any of them in our line. Instead, we formulate our products with powerful, safe, biocompatible ingredients that bring skin and scalp back to their healthiest, most balanced, most radiant state. That’s our ingredient-elimination philosophy for a total skin reset.
