- Pumpkin Ferment and Pomegranate Extract: These ingredients work together to enzymatically dissolve dead surface skin cells, minimizing the appearance of pores.

What Else You Need to Know: Packed with a powerful antioxidant complex of l-ascorbic and ferulic acids to reveal a more even-looking complexion, C-Firma™ helps enzymatically dissolve dead skin cells as it intensely hydrates. Photo damage and aging are visibly diminished, replaced by incredible radiance and luminosity. With a 3.3 pH, C-Firma will likely change color over the course of its life on your shelf, but don‘t be alarmedanything from a pale yellow to an amber orange is completely normal and not a sign the ascorbic acid is ineffective. Drunk Elephant recommends using C-Firma within six months after opening, and if you‘re using it as directedone pump per dayone bottle will last about three to four months.
This serum 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.
Drunk Elephant is a supporter of IEF (International Elephant Foundation) and is cruelty-free.

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.
