What it is: A protein moisturizer that combines signal peptides, growth factors, amino acids, and pygmy waterlily to improve the look of skin’s tone, texture, and firmness.

Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily

Skincare Concerns: Dryness, Dullness and Uneven Texture, and Loss of Firmness and Elasticity

Highlighted Ingredients:
- Nine Signal Peptide Complex: Serves to bind moisture to skin to plump, firm, and restore bounce to skin’s appearance, helping to support skin’s natural self-renewal process.
- Pygmy Waterlily Stem Cell Extract: Acts as an excellent source of antioxidants and nutrients to nurture the skin; it is extremely moisturizing, soothing, and calming and is effective in supporting healthy, youthful-looking skin.
- Soybean Folic Acid Ferment Extract: A B vitamin that plays a central role in maintaining youthful, elastic skin; skin becomes actively thirsty for folic acid, especially after exposure to sun.

Ingredient Callouts: This product is vegan and cruelty-free.

What Else You Need to Know: Protini restores younger, revived-looking skin. Lines, wrinkles, and sun damage appear reduced and skin feels strengthened and moisturized. Think of Protini like adding protein to your smoothie. Abundant with proteins and nutrients, it replenishes and restores skin to a strong, healthy state. Formulated at an ideal pH level of 4.0.

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.

Clinical Results: In an independent consumer-testing panel of 50 women ages 25 to 55:
- 100% agreed their skin felt replenished and nurtured
- 97% agreed their skin felt moisturized
- 97% agreed their skin texture felt soft and smooth
