What it is:

This supercharged blend of 10% AHAs gently exfoliates to restore and resurface dull and uneven areas, while its mix of soothing plant oils, deeply moisturizing butters, and barrier-supporting electrolytes replenishes dry and dehydrated skin below the neck.

What it is formulated to do:

With our dream-team blend of glycolic, tartaric, lactic, and citric alpha hydroxy acids, T.L.C. Glycolic Body Lotion gently smooths and refines rough, bumpy skin while improving areas of uneven tone. A mix of antioxidant-loaded nonfragrant plant oils and butters—think green tea seed, passionfruit, apricot, marula, and shea—soothes and goes deep to moisturize dry, irritable skin, while squalane, vitamin F, sodium hyaluronate, and niacinamide work to create a stronger, healthier acid mantle. Powerful electrolytes (coconut fruit juice and sodium PCA) provide critical hydration and help defend against environmental stressors. 

What else you need to know:

T.L.C. Glycolic Body Lotion is supercharged with ingredients that go beyond simple moisture, helping to strengthen and replenish a compromised skin barrier, boosting the production of vital natural moisturizing factors that keep it healthy, soft, and flexible—like ceramides and cholesterol—as well as helping restore and protect the water content of skin. T.L.C. Glycolic Body Lotion is formulated at an ideal pH of 3.5.

Free of sulfates, silicones, essential oils, fragrance, dyes, and drying alcohols.

Vegan and cruelty-free.

Suggested Usage:

Apply to clean, dry skin once per day. Those new to AHA exfoliation may want to start slowly, using T.L.C. Glycolic Body Lotion every other day for the first week of application. Note: Slight tingling may be experienced, particularly for the first few days of application. This typically dissipates as your skin becomes adjusted. May be mixed with Sili™ Body Lotion for a milder exfoliation experience.

WARNING: Use only as directed. Avoid eye contact. Discontinue use immediately if irritation occurs and consult a physician. Use a sunscreen daily while using this product and for a week after ceasing use. Product's contact with skin must be of limited frequency or duration. Do not use on broken skin.

T.L.C. Glycolic Body Lotion

T.L.C. Framboos™ AHA blend: Glycolic plus tartaric (T), lactic (L), and citric (C) acids exfoliate built-up dead skin cells, resurfacing dull, uneven skin for a smoother, brighter, more even-looking complexion.

Marula Butter: A super-pure concentrated butter derived from marula oil, and rich in antioxidant polyphenols, lipids, and fatty acids, that deeply moisturizes skin and provides powerful barrier protection.

Shea Butter: A concentrated butter derived from the shea fruit. Shea butter has a complex triglyceride composition that is responsible for its characteristic rich, emollient properties and skin-barrier protection.

Niacinamide: Aka vitamin B3, niacinamide has a wide range of benefits, most notably its ability to improve signs of aging (fine lines, wrinkles, loss of firmness) as well as uneven tone and texture. Research has demonstrated that niacinamide, even in low concentrations, can help strengthen a compromised skin barrier, boost skin's synthesis of ceramides and cholesterol (both essential substances in barrier health and elasticity), and improve skin's defenses against water loss. 

Vitamin F: Soothing fatty acids (linolenic and linoleic) play a key role in maintaining hydration levels, improving skin texture and suppleness while reducing inflammation and improving acid mantle strength.

Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer: With a smaller molecular weight than hyaluronic acid, it is able to penetrate skin and deliver intense hydration to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and promote firmness.

Sodium PCA: A powerful electrolyte with potent antioxidant benefits, plant-derived sodium PCA is identical to the form naturally present in skin and plays a vital role in helping maintain hydration levels in skin, improving barrier strength and lipid content, calming redness, and protecting against environmental dehydration.

Squalane: Derived from olives, squalane is a natural moisturizing factor, which means it works exactly the same as the form of squalane that is found naturally in skin. Squalane acts as both a moisturizing agent and a natural antioxidant that soothes and prevents water loss from the surface of the skin without leaving behind a greasy feel.

Coconut Water: The water-light, cold-pressed portion of the coconut fruit is a rich source of electrolytes and has lightweight moisturizing properties.

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.

Green Tea Seed Oil: This moisturizing, fatty-acid-rich oil derived from the seeds of the green tea plant contains powerful antioxidant xanthines (like caffeine) and polyphenols (such as epigallocatechin gallate, epigallocatechin, and epicatechins), which play a critical role in defending skin against environmental—particularly UV-generated—free radical damage.

Coconut Oil: Derived from the coconut, coconut oil has deep moisturizing properties and is a rich source of fatty acids.

Passionfruit Oil: Commonly known as maracuja oil, it’s prized for its rich moisturizing properties and skin-soothing benefits.

Apricot Oil: Rich in soothing omega fatty acids 6 and 9 as well as antioxidants compounds (primarily vitamins A and E), apricot oil has a sheer texture and a lightly moisturizing finish on skin.

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. Learn More.
