Retinol reimagined. A-Passioni™ Retinol Cream is a cutting-edge formula that combines 1.0% vegan retinol with nourishing, superfood-rich ingredients to dramatically diminish the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, and sun damage, revealing a vibrant, younger-looking complexion.
Retinol and supportive peptides restore bounce, resilience and a brighter clarity to skin while helping to even skin tone and texture — without the associated redness and irritation. Vitamin F, along with a curated blend of comforting passionfruit, apricot, marula, and jojoba oils replenish essential lipids and moisture while antioxidant-packed kale, winter cherry, and xanthophylls help defend against environmental stressors. It’s like a reboot for your skin back to its healthiest, most youthful state.
A-Passioni™ is packaged to protect the stability and potency of its light and air-sensitive ingredients. A-Passioni is not recommended for use while pregnant or breastfeeding.
100% Free of essential oils, silicones, and fragrance.
Vegan and cruelty-free.
Morning or night, apply a pea-size amount or less to clean, dry face, avoiding the eye area. May be mixed with any Drunk Elephant cream or oil. Limit initial use to once or twice a week, gradually increasing frequency to every other night, and then every night as tolerated. Always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen.
Tip: Mix with B-Hydra™ for an extra shot of hydration and vitamin B.
Retinol products are not recommended for use by pregnant or nursing mothers. Always check with your doctor before using any new products while pregnant or nursing.
1.0% Retinol: Retinol is one of the most well-researched ingredients in skincare, capable of bringing balance to any skin concern. At a 1.0% concentration, our pure form of vegan retinol can dramatically improve the look and feel of uneven skin tone and texture, as well as ward off the damage done from daily exposure to UV rays, pollution, and other free radicals.
Xanthophylls: Potent carotenoids found in that exert a powerful defense against aging environmental stressors and electronic-device-emitted high energy visible (HEV) light, aka blue light.
Triple Peptide Blend: A potent trio of peptides that helps firm and strengthen, boosting the age-fighting benefits of retinol.
Winter Cherry Juice: This extract comes from the seeds of the physalis fruit (not actually a cherry), a plant native to Egypt that contains more pollution-fighting antioxidant carotenoids than any other fruit or vegetable.
Kale Leaf Extract: This superfood is loaded with essential vitamins A and E, supplying skin with powerful antioxidant compounds—think quercetin and beta carotene—along with replenishing plant sterols.
Passionfruit, Apricot and Jojoba Oils: These rich oils have moisturizing and skin-soothing benefits.
Virgin Marula Oil: This super-absorbable oil, high in critical antioxidants and omegas 6 and 9, helps moisturize, nourish, and rejuvenate skin for a youthful glow.
Vitamin F: Soothing fatty acids (linolenic and linoleic) work to improve skin’s texture and suppleness and help calm signs of sensitivity.

The Drunk Elephant Difference
We are committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the health of the skin or support the integrity of our formulations. We never take into account whether something is synthetic or natural, instead choosing ingredients based on biocompatibility. That’s why we focus on healthy pH levels, formulations the skin recognizes, small molecular structure that’s easily absorbed, and effective active ingredients that also support and maintain the skin’s acid mantle. But what we leave out of our products is just as important as what we put into them, so you will never find what we call the Suspicious 6™ (essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, SLS) in our line. We believe that these six ubiquitous ingredients are at the root of almost every skin issue, and when they’re removed entirely from your routine—that is, when you take a Drunk Break™—skin can reset and return to its healthiest, most balanced state. This ingredient-elimination diet benefits all skin types and inspired the #barewithus🐘 Instagram movement, a collection of bare-faced selfies that chronicles the Drunk Elephant journeys of people who have found not only healthier skin but more importantly, healthier self-confidence.
