Product Information

Letter from the Founder Intro

A Note

In thinking about what was missing from Drunk Elephant, I wanted to make a treatment product that used lactic acid—and not just a little. I’m talking 10% lactic acid, which is a powerful dose, but because it’s lactic acid, it’s still gentle on the skin. And to call it a Protini meant we had to add all the peptides and amino acids of Protini Cream—then we added even more. That’s how Protini Resurf Serum was born. It’s an incredibly effective exfoliating treatment that resurfaces, supports, strengthens, and protects the skin, making it smoother, plumper, and bouncier. Try, play, experiment—and see what’s right for you. Trust me: This is a very fun kind of acid trip.

Key Ingredients

Product Formula Closeup

Lactic Acid 10%

Derived from the fermentation of sugar, lactic acid is an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) that exfoliates the skin by dissolving the bonds that hold dead cells together. Lactic acid is considered to be a milder, more hydrating AHA. 

Signal Peptide Complex

11 signal peptides (made up of amino acids, which form proteins in the skin) and safe, plant-derived growth factors help to boost skin’s self-renewal, binding moisture to skin and plumping, firming, and restoring bounce.

Multi-Amino-Acid Blend

A mix of quick-absorbing amino acids soothes, strengthens, and moisturizes skin.

Snow Mushroom Extract

Known for its powerful hydration-boosting properties, this ingredient adds potent antioxidant benefits to skin while helping defend against dehydration.
