Superfade Face Cream

Brown skin blemishes and freckles occur when excessive pigmentation has resulted from the influence of sun exposure, hormonal variation or skin type. Melanocytes in the epidermis produce melanin as a natural defence to protect skin against UV rays.

However, repeated or heavy exposure to UV-B rays can make the melanocytes lose their ability to distribute pigmentation evenly, so that dark spots appear on the skin, commonly referred to as age spots.

Superfade Face Cream contains a powerful pigmentation fading agent to assist in fading brown skin blemishes and freckles. Also contains exfoliant and sunscreen.


Contains the same exclusive, powerful fading agent as Superfade Original to stop the formation of excess pigment, as well as exfoliant and sunscreen. Fades age spots, freckles and pigmentation on the face in 6-8 weeks. Non greasy and can be used under makeup. Superfade Face Cream works by disabling melanocytes, which produce melanin and can cause unwanted pigmentation. The active ingredient is an effective inhibitor of melanin production.

The combination of Superfade Face Creams powerful fading agent, exfoliants and sunscreen has been shown to be the most effective in fading age spots and other brown pigmentation.
