Drunk Elephant's Protini Powerpeptide Resurfacing Serum is a daily 10% lactic acid serum infused with peptides to gently exfoliate and firm skin, targeting signs of aging for a smoother, younger-looking complexion.



  • Gently exfoliates with minimal irritation, smoothing skin's texture
  • Firms skin and boosts hydration, reducing visible fine lines
  • Replenishes hydration levels, adding lightweight moisture
  • Accelerates skin's turnover for a more vibrant appearance
  • Vegan and cruelty-free
  • Considered a milder, more hydrating AHA with minimal chances of irritation, lactic acid is perfect for AHA beginners or those with sensitized skin who are looking for a gentler exfoliation and skin that looks healthier overall.
  • Protini Serum is formulated at a skin-friendly pH of 3.5.

Key Ingredients

  • Lactic acid (10%): 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, which minimizes your chances of irritation.
  • Signal peptide complex: 11 signal peptides and safe, biosynthesized growth factors help boost skin's self-renewal, binding moisture to skin and firming skin.
  • Snow mushroom extract: Known for its powerful hydration-boosting properties, this ingredient has potent antioxidant benefits for skin and helps defend against dehydration.

Research Results

  • In a clinical study with 31 people after 4 weeks:
  • 100% of participants had more radiant skin
  • In a clinical study with 31 people after 8 weeks
  • 100% of participants showed improvement in skin’s elasticity
  • 93% of participants had smoother skin
  • Clinically proven to strengthen skin's barrier and reduce lines and wrinkles

How To Use

Shake gently before use. Apply to a clean, dry face, avoiding the eye area. May also be applied to the chest and backs of hands. Follow (or mix) with your choice of Drunk Elephant moisturizer. During the daytime, may also be combined with C-Firma Day Serum for added brightening and firming benefits. Follow with Umbra. Protini Powerpeptide provides gentle chemical exfoliation on its own, so it is not necessary to also use T.L.C. Framboos or Babyfacial on the same day.
