WHAT IT IS: This breakthrough protein moisturizer combines an unprecedented array and concentration of signal peptides, growth factors, supportive amino acids and pygmy waterlily for visible and immediate improvement in the appearance of skin’s tone, texture and firmness. WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO: Protini’s proprietary formula delivers younger, revived-looking skin, almost from the first application. Lines, wrinkles and signs of sun-damage appear reduced; depleted skin feels strengthened and moisturized. WHAT ELSE YOU NEED TO KNOW: Think of Protini™ in your Drunk Elephant skincare routine like adding a shot of protein to your smoothie. Abundant with proteins and nutrients, it replenishes and restores your skin back to a strong, healthy state. Protini is formulated at the ideal pH level of 4.0.
SUGGESTED USAGE: Apply morning and night to clean, dry skin for a vital dose of protein and replenishing moisture the skin needs to retain its youthful appearance. Tip: We like to mix it up so add a shot of Protini to any Drunk Elephant serum, cream or oil.

Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the skin’s health or support the integrity and effectiveness of our formulations. We never take into account an ingredient’s synthetic or natural status, but instead choose based on biocompatibility. You won’t find what we call the “Suspicious 6” in our products (Essential Oils, Drying Alcohols, Silicones, Chemical Screens, Fragrance/Dyes and SLS,) making them, in our opinion, appropriate for all skin. We believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue we see. When formulating the products, we focus on pH levels and safety, and always making sure that the active ingredients are at efficacious levels. This is the Drunk Elephant difference.
Ratings & Reviews
Like a Martini! Not really but I do love this new product. I use it under my moisturizer, Lala Retro Whipped Cream. I love them both. I'm more than sixty years old and probably beyond help but the creams both make my skin feel superb. I even like the way they smell, or don't smell (much). Of course, the package and delivery method are awesome!
I've always been willing to spend more on skin care products that are cruelty free. In all my 59 years I have never found products that really make a difference in my skin. First the LaLa Whipped Cream that I can't go without and now the Protini Polypeptide Cream. I've been using LaLa and Marula Oil at night and Protein and the Vitamin C product in the daytime. I'm so pleased with these products. The only thing I've had trouble with is the container that the Beste cleanser comes in. It's hard for me to use and I end up wasting product. But other than that, I love all the products.
