What it is: A rescue cream infused with six African oils and a plant ceramide complex for intense moisture and replenishing barrier support.
Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily
Skincare Concerns: Dryness, Fine Lines and Wrinkles, and Loss of Firmness and Elasticity
Formulation: Rich Cream
- African-Oil Blend: Nourishes, visibly rejuvenates, and moisturizes.
- Ceramides AP, EOP, and NP: These plant-derived ceramides are identical to the wax-like moisturizing ceramides that occur naturally in skin. In Lala RetroTM, they help soothe and maintain the moisture balance of skin while protecting against water loss.
- Phytosphingosine: This plant-derived lipid has powerful soothing and restorative benefits.
Ingredient Callouts: This product is vegan and cruelty-free.
What Else You Need to Know: This cream‘s additional ingredients—sodium hyaluronate crosspolymer and antioxidant-rich fermented green tea—release hydration, defend against everyday stressors, and combat visible signs of aging. With a pH level of 5.2, Lala RetroTM has the luxurious texture of a rich face cream without feeling suffocating or heavy.
Drunk Elephant is committed to using only ingredients that either directly benefit the health of the skin or support the integrity of their formulations. The brand focuses on healthy pH levels, formulations the skin recognizes, small molecular structure that’s easily absorbed, and effective active ingredients that also support the skin’s acid mantle. All of their products are designed to be mixed together—what Drunk Elephant calls making a smoothie. (This is true for all of their products except their sunscreen, Umbra, which sits on top of the skin, protecting it from UV damage.) The result is skin that is reset to its happiest, healthiest state.

About the Brand
Since 2012, Drunk Elephant has pioneered a skin- and hair-care philosophy that is as radical as it is simple. Get rid of anything that is irritating, sensitizing, disruptive, or inflammatory, and replace it with smart, biocompatible ingredients the skin recognizes and embraces. We call the culprits the Suspicious 6—essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, and SLS—and you will never find any of them in our line. Instead, we formulate our products with powerful, safe, biocompatible ingredients that bring skin and scalp back to their healthiest, most balanced, most radiant state. That’s our ingredient-elimination philosophy for a total skin reset.
