What it is: A protein moisturizer that combines signal peptides, growth factors, amino acids, and pygmy waterlily to visibly improve skins 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:

- Signal Peptide Complex (Growth Factors): Nine signal peptides (made up of amino

acids, which form proteins in the skin) bind moisture to skin-visibly plumping, firming,

and restoring bounce.

- Pygmy Waterlily Stem Cell Extract: An excellent source of antioxidants and nutrients to replenish the skin; extremely moisturizing, soothing, and calming; and effective in supporting healthy-, youthful-looking skin.

- Soybean Folic Acid Ferment Extract: This B vitamin plays a central role in maintaining youthful-, elastic-looking skin. Skin is 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 visibly strong, healthy state. It has a pH of 4.0.

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 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.

Smoothie Tips:
-Try Drunk Elephants "Sleeping Beauty Smoothie" for visibly strong, smooth, glowing skin. In the palm of your hand, mix one pump of T.L.C. Framboos (sold separately), one pump of Virgin Marula Oil (sold separately), and one pump of Protini and apply to skin.
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.
