Financial Advisor to Drunk Elephant on Sale to Shiseido

Drunk Elephant was launched in August 2013 by Tiffany Masterson, a stay-at-home mom in Houston after doing extensive research searching for solutions to her own skincare concerns. From that research, she developed a unique philosophy and collection of products which quickly gained a global word-of-mouth following. Drunk Elephant is known for creating the Clean Compatible category and is beloved for powerful, effective, biocompatible formulas that help consumers achieve healthy, glowing skin. Drunk Elephant only uses ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of the formulations. Drunk Elephant’s streamlined offerings, free of the Suspicious Six (Essential Oils, Drying Alcohols, Chemical Sunscreens, SLS, Silicones and Fragrances/Dyes) provide solutions-oriented skincare for all skin. Drunk Elephant is offered in select global markets.

This transaction was completed prior to Raymond James’ acquisition of Financo.
