              I have been using Murad products for about 2 months. Other than being more expensive than I would like, the products are great. The essential C moisturizer is so smooth and creamy it vanishes into the skin. It has already given my skin a smoother more youthful appearance.

                        I have terrible, awful combination skin and this moisturizer is perfect. I use it every day twice a day. In the winter I needed something a little extra moisturizing, but as a daily product, this is perfect. My skin has done a 180 since I started using my Murad products!

                            A:

                            In order to ensure that each Murad product delivers the results it promises, Dr. Murad determines appropriate levels for high-performance ingredients like Vitamin C in each formula. To protect proprietary formulas from imitation, Murad does not disclose the percentage strength of any ingredient unless legally required to do so, typically in the case of an ingredient that is an over-the-counter drug. Accordingly, the amount of Vitamin C in Murad Environmental Shield Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30/ PA+++ is a trade secret and will not be disclosed.

                        • Q:

                          I thought that Vitamin C's potency was diminished if it exposed to light. I am looking at the product and notice that the plastic bottle it is in is opaque/clear. Won't the lotion not be as effective?

                            We received this additional info from Murad:
                            "The Vitamin C used in Essential-C Day Moisture is oil soluble as opposed to most Vitamin Cs (and previous generations) that are water soluble. Being oil soluble also makes it much more stable."

                            Excellent question!

                            Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30 | PA+++ is effective due to 2 factors:

                            1. The Murad recipe, consisting of antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and hydrators, protects and stabilizes the next generation Vitamin C ingredient.

                            2. Ectoin helps to preserve the Vitamin C

                            The combination of the above ingredients ensures the efficacy and stability of Essential-C Day Moisture SPF 30 | PA+++.

                            Hope this info helps!
