- Retinol 1%: A pure form of vegan retinol, this is one of the most well-researched ingredients
in skincare capable of bringing balance to any skin concern. At a one percent concentration, retinol can dramatically improve the look and feel of uneven skin tone and texture and ward off the damage done from daily exposure to UV rays, pollution, and other free radicals.
- Triple Peptide Blend: A potent trio of peptides that visibly firms and strengthens, boosting the age-fighting benefits of retinol.
- Vitamin F: Soothing fatty acids (linolenic and linoleic) that work to visibly improve skin‘s texture and suppleness and calm signs of sensitivity.
Ingredient Callouts: This product is vegan and cruelty-free.
What Else You Need to Know: Retinol and supportive peptides restore a look of bounce, resilience, and clarity to skin while visibly evening tone and texture without redness and irritation. Vitamin F and a curated blend of oils replenish lipids and moisture while antioxidant-packed ingredients defend against environmental stressors.
This cream 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 togetherwhat 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.

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.
