What are the main ingredients
Could you please explain the first 3 ingredients in this eye cream. It's called Essential-C, so where is the vitamin C in the ingredients?? Also, I use another product line for cleanser, toner, and moisterizer, but I'm interested in the Murad active radiance serum. Will I get the same results with using this product and others products from a different skin-care line?? Thank you

The first three ingredients are organic compounds used in sunscreens. I believe "Essential-C" is just referring to the environmental shield that Murad has focused this line around but the vitamin C is in there. Ascorbic acid or ascorbate are forms of vitamin C. A lot of times you'll find these listed instead of straight up "Vitamin C". You can certainly add the serum to your regimen. Adding from a different line isn't necessarily a bad thing. My cleanser and moisturizer are both Murad. For my toner and eye creams I use three different brands. So just see what works best for you.

I believe the first three ingredients are referring to what is in the SPF. For example, it says the same thing on the same lines Essential-C Day Cream, but adds Titanium Dioxide as well (which makes sense it would not be in the eye creams because the eye area does not have pores). There is Vitamin C in products in the line, it is just not listed first. The active serum is awesome, but you can still use the line you prefer and just add that serum into your routine if you do not want to completely switch. I actually only use the serum during the day and use something else in their line at night. I like Murad and have been playing around with different lines to see which ones are best for me, so I say do not be scared to experiment!!
