Green Tea

Because Green Tea consumption has been linked to better health and enhanced longevity, scientists have been searching for the source of Green Tea’s seemingly magical effects. Current thinking is that the antioxidant polyphenols present in Green Tea act as free-radical scavengers that protect cells against environmental damage and help prevent premature aging. Another class of compounds, xanthines, has been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties which may help reduce the severity of a wide range of diseases and conditions. By adding Green Tea extract to skincare formulas, Dr. Murad has discovered that he has been able to enhance their power to calm and soothe red, inflamed and irritated skin.

Clarifying Cleanser 4.8 5 1217 1264
Best Skin Care I ever used! I have been struggling with adult acne for years. I have tried every product under the sun. Proactiv worked for a little while but it eventually stopped working AND my skin looked dull, old and dried out. Since using Murad I have almost completely stopped breaking out! I haven't even been getting "period pimples"! My skin looks younger, more vibrant and healtier than it has in years! And the products last me forever. I HIGHLY recommend this. I know everyone is always skeptical about these reviews, I know I always am, but I am a real person and I got very real, and wonderful, results. I also have a guy friend, a little younger than me, who had equally great results. July 10, 2007
This is the one! I love this cleanser! I first tried it in the Acne Starter kit and enjoyed it so much, I bought the full sized bottle! It cleared up my acne in a few short days and continues to stay clear. When using this, my skin looks FLAWLESS. It's completely clear. The best part is, this product isn't drying on the skin. It's helped so much, I'll never buy another acne cleanser other than this. I highly recommend it to anyone dealing with acne prone skin, dry or oily! April 14, 2015
Good Cleanser! Very good product, it helps to make my skin clean all day! March 17, 2015
Heaven Sent Product! I have had severe acne the majority of my life. I've gone to several different prestige dermatologists and have never seen improvements. I have also almost tried every acne face wash on the market and have only gotten worse skin. This product has been the only thing to clear my skin and reduce my inflammation tremendously. I highly recommend you give this cleanser a try. January 17, 2015

Answer: 
Great question! You can use the Clarifying Cleanser once in the morning and once in the evening. Then follow with your treatment and moisturizer. Splash your face with water and then put a dime size of the cleanser in your hand and rub together to lather. Wash your face with your hands and do so for about one minute. Rinse clean and pat dry.

Answer: 
You MAY be having a reaction, which is most likely if you have sensitive skin. I suggest to stop using it for a couple days and use a gentle cleanser instead. If the redness goes down, it's probably a reaction. If not...well, not sure! Hope I helped, at least a little bit:)

Answer: 
I would not give up on this cleanser just yet. First, it is important to note that this is a gel cleanser. Gel cleansers are typically for oily skin types (although, I personally have dry skin and this product works fine for me). If you do not have oily skin, this product could possibly be stripping you of natural oils. In return, your skin would try to overcompensate for the loss of sebum and produce a lot more which could cause issues.
Another thing is to pay attention to how and when you're using this product. Do you use it morning and night? (I recommend you do if you're currently not.) Do you use it before toning and moisturizing your skin? (That would be the correct order to use it in.) Also, take note of the other products you are using. Are you using a toner? Are you using a moisturizer? The Murad Acne Sarter kit is a great way to test out other acne products meant to work together for your skin concerns.
Other than that, you must look at how you take care of your body. What kinds of foods do you eat? Do you drink water often? Are you getting the vitamins you should be? Are you often stressed? These things are important to pay attention to. Sometimes when we aren't giving our body what it needs, it shows in our skin. What we apply to our skin can help but, how we take care of our bodies can stop and prevent some of the concerns you have with your skin.
I hope you don't take offense to anything I've said. I responded to your question based on assumptions. I hope this helps.

Answer: 
Gel cleanser is typically meant for more oily skin types. However, I use this particular cleanser and I normally have normal-dry skin. In my experience, this cleanser was not drying. It immediately helped with my acne and continues to keep it clear. I would recommend trying this product in the Acne Starter Kit, along side the moisturizers in the kit. I have found this to be extremely helpful for my skin.
I hope this helps you!

Methyl in Clarifying Cleanser

I recently purchased the Acne Starter Kit and was very excited to use it. At first I thought it was working, it seemed like my pimples were decreasing in size but the redness is out of control. I did some research and most people say Methyl can cause irritation and redness. I enjoyed the tingling and refreshing feeling of it when I washed my face but I do not want so much redness. I noticed the fourth ingredient is Methyl Gluceth-20 so I suppose the amount of menthyl is quite strong. Does anyone else have an adverse affect? Could this be why my acne is so red?

Answers

Answer: 
Methyl Gluceth-20 is a water soluble emollient and humectant produced from Glucose and Methyl Alcohol and originally derived from corn sugar and corn starch. It is a versatile, gentle, effective humectant, emollient, and foaming agent that imparts a smooth feel to the skin.

Methyl Gluceth-20 is considered extremely gentle and safe for use. It is not listed as an irritant, but no studies or research was found to document its safety by the FDA, CIR, etc.

The redness may be coming from something else. Please contact Customer Care and speak with a Certified Skincare Specialist so we can provide a thorough skincare analysis.
