Essential-C Cleanser's patented vitamin-packed formula removes environmental impurities, rehydrates, and awakens the senses with a burst of citrus. Phospholipids and Sodium PCA attract and bind moisture to dry skin, while a combination of vitamins A, C, and E defend skin from free radical damage. Allantoin and panthenol work to soothe environmentally stressed skin.

Essential-C Cleanser is recommended as a Step 1 cleanser in any Murad Environmental Shield regimen. It is formulated to cleanse and rehydrate skin as part of Dr. Murad's Inclusive Health system of care. Dermatologist developed. Tested on people, not animals. Formulated without parabens and phthalates.
Massage a small amount over dampened face and neck. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Follow with a Murad Step 2 treatment.

Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Cleanser:

I used my rewards points to buy this product because my exuviance facewash was drying my skin out and I needed a new one. I figured Murad is such a reputable brand that I can't go wrong. Honesty, to me it's not better than a drug store face wash. It was ok at first... i didn't have any complaints. But after using it for several months my skin is so dry and blotchy. I recently switched brands and my skin is clearing up

Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Cleanser:

i LOVE this! i'm usually very picky about what i use on my face, because it's my face & i care about its appearance. but i got a facial and the ET suggested that i use this twice a day and my face looks and feels amazing! and it's happened over a short period of time. a little goes a long way, so it's well worth the money.

    Comments about Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Cleanser:

    I don't like to spend a ton of money on products, but this product is exceptional.

    I was using Neutrogena cleanser, which for some reason dried out my oily skin. Then I bought Cetaphil cleanser, which left me feeling greasy.

    I decided to try the Murad Vitamin C Cleanser a few months ago when Ulta had a promotion. At first I was hesitant because this product is expensive, however, I love it! It cleans very well and does not irritate my skin.

        i expected a lot from this product, it definily cleans my face, it leaves it very clean but it does nothing for me. the toner that goes with it does nothing too.

                    A:

                    That can depend on what you are sensitive to. This is a great, gentle cleanser that won't dry skin. It's filled with antioxidants which will help strengthen the surface layer of the skin which is good for those who are sensitive.

                    A:

                    This is not a foaming cleanser. It provides a creamy lather that will not dry out the skin.

                • Q:

                  I have slightly oily skin & a lot of products make me breakout. I do not like to use acne wash a lot because it dries me out. My skin is starting to get dull. Would this product & the astringent work for me? Would it cause breakouts? I know I would not be able to use the Vitamin C moisturizers, which would make me breakout.
