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 use this product every night. The smell is great & your skin feels really clean when you're finished. I use 3 other Murad products every night as well. I changed to Murad for skin care about 1 year ago after receiving a facial from a salon that used/sold the product. However, I always buy all of my beauty & skin products from ULTA. Why? Great customer service & the best rewards program around. I love to save all of my points until.December & then pick a great perfume FREE for my husband to give me for Christmas.

                  I use at least once a day with Clarisonic.Good makeup remover, leaves skin soft & refreshed and I believe it has given my skin clarity, rather like a mild acid peel

                    Received as a sample. Liked it so bought full size. Does not dry out skin, smells like citrus, foams so you fell clean, not greasy.On the expensive side, but a little goes a long way.

                        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.
