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.

            Went to the spa for my first facial. I knew my skin was dry. After my facial I noticed the difference immediately. I ended up purchasing the cleanser of Murad site if you do auto delivery.

                        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.
