Overview

How moisturizing is it? Quite moisturizing. Obagi Obagi-C Fx System C-Clarifying Serum has a moisturizing rating of 5.0 out of 10.

Is it more humectant or occlusive? Purely humectant. It has a maximum Humectancy of 10.0 out of 10 and zero Occlusivity (we didn't find any occlusives on the ingredient list).
Tip: Studies suggest that humectants alone do not moisturize the skin. We recommend applying a product with some occlusive ingredients after the use of this one.

What else is good about it? Obagi Obagi-C Fx System C-Clarifying Serum is rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants are believed to reduce the oxidative stress caused by free radicals, thus preventing accelerated skin aging.
