Also, the serum reduces the visibility of skin damage caused by the sun, and in addition to gentle chemical peeling, it provides hydration, has a calming effect and strengthens the skin barrier.
Drunk Elephant Protini™ Powerpeptide Resurf Serum is formulated at an ideal pH of 3.5 and is clinically proven to strengthen the skin barrier, improve tone, and reduce the visibility of wrinkles and pores.
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 a milder, more hydrating AHA.
Signal Peptide Complex: 11 signal peptides (composed of amino acids that form proteins in the skin) help stimulate the skin’s self-renewal, moisturize the skin and plump, firm and restore its elasticity.
Multi-Amino Acid Blend: A blend of fast-absorbing amino acids soothes, strengthens and moisturizes the skin.
Snow mushroom extract: known for its moisturizing properties
Sodium Hyaluronate: With a lower molecular weight than hyaluronic acid, it can penetrate the skin and provide intense hydration to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and improve firmness.
Sodium PCA: A powerful electrolyte with powerful antioxidant properties, plant-derived sodium PCA is identical to the form naturally present in the skin and plays a vital role in maintaining skin hydration levels, improving barrier strength and lipid content, calming redness and protecting against dehydration.
Tocotrienols: are a powerful, concentrated form of vitamin E, and are used for their antioxidant properties, skin soothing ability, and moisture content.
Squalane: Derived from olives, squalane is a natural moisturizing factor (NMF), meaning it works exactly the same as the form of squalane found naturally in the skin. Squalane acts both as a moisturizer and as a natural antioxidant that soothes and prevents water loss from the skin’s surface without leaving a greasy feeling.
Green Tea Seed Oil: This fatty acid-rich moisturizing oil derived from green tea seeds contains the powerful antioxidants xanthines (like caffeine) and polyphenols (such as epigallocatechin gallate, epigallocatechin and epicatechins), which play a key role in defending the skin against free radical damage from environment, especially UV radiation.
Marula Virgin Oil: This fast-absorbing oil, high in antioxidants and omega 6 and 9, helps to hydrate, nourish and brighten the skin.
Drunk Elepahant Protini serum has a transparent and watery texture that spreads easily and is quickly absorbed without leaving a greasy mark on the face. The serum should be shaken slightly before use, and then applied to a clean and dry face, avoiding the eye area. It can also be used on the neckline and back of the hands. The manufacturer declares it as a daily serum that can be used twice a day, in the morning and in the evening, but I applied it only in the morning on a cleansed face. After the serum, I applied a moisturizing cream or you can mix it with a cream. You can combine it with products with vitamin C, but it is not recommended to use it in the same routine with products with retinol and AHA acids.
After just one use, you will notice a visible difference in wrinkles and skin texture. It is stated that it can be used for all skin types, and it suited my dry and sensitive skin perfectly. I expected my skin to tighten and sting after application, but the effect is completely surprising because it makes the skin extremely soft and hydrated. After a month of use, it brightened my complexion, wrinkles are less visible, and the skin was “freed” of pores and impurities and gave it a healthy, shiny complexion.
It does not contain essential oils, silicones and fragrances, and the company supports the IEF (International Elephant Foundation).
The downside of this serum is its high price.
