Superfade is one of the most effective pigmentation fading products ever formulated to help remove smooth brown marks on your skin. Age spots, dark marks, hormone marks and uneven pigmentation,  Superfade is clinically proven, pharmacy strength hyperpigmentation treatment – this is not a cosmetic.

Age Spots and brown blemishes are caused by excessive pigmentation that produce irregular brown marks on the skins surface, especially on backs of hands, arms, neck and face.

Superfade Face Cream contains a powerful fading agent to assist in fading age spots, freckles and brown skin blemishes.

WHAT TYPE OF PIGMENTATION DOES SUPERFADE TREAT?
Over 90% of women over 18 years of age suffer from some form of hyperpigmentation. This can take the form of age spots on the backs of hands and dark marks on the face, hormone marks, or just uneven pigmentation. These marks are usually distinguished as flat, brown marks on the surface of the skin.

HOW DOES SUPERFADE WORK?
Superfade Cream and Face Creams contain hydroquinone, which disables the melanocytes that produce melanin which move to the surface of the skin to produce age spots. The disabling action stops the movement of melanin and therefore can fade flat, brown marks on the skin's surface.

DOES IT CAUSE COMPLETE LOSS OF PIGMENT?
No, it disables only some of the melanocytes that produce pigment but not all, and hence just fades brown marks back to normal skin colour.

CAN SUPERFADE TREATMENTS BE APPLIED ALL OVER?
Superfade Cream and Face Cream should be applied only to the area to be treated to reduce sensitivity reactions on surrounding skin. Superfade Face Cream is also available in a 20ml tube with a soft silicone applicator tip for easy and precise application to small areas. This applicator helps to avoid unnecessary irritation of the surrounding “normal” skin.

WILL SUPERFADE FADE SURROUNDING SKIN ALSO?
Superfade should only be applied to the dark, age spots, not the surrounding "normal" skin. We understand that this can be difficult, but it sometimes results in the surrounding skin also becoming a little lighter and the age spot appearing darker before it fades.

WHAT IS THE PH LEVEL?
Approximately 2.9 - 3.3

DO I NEED A SPECIAL CLEANSER?
It is best to use a gentle, soap-free cleanser, e.g. John Plunkett’s Crème Cleanser or NS Sensitive Skin Cleanser.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SUPERFADE CREAM & FACE CREAM?
Superfade Cream is primarily used to treat pigmentation on the hands and body.
Superfade Face Cream has the same level of proven active ingredient as Superfade Cream, however Superfade Face Cream is designed especially for the face. Superfade Face Cream has an anti-ageing formula appropriate for treatment of facial pigmentation and also comes in a 20ml tube with a soft silicone applicator tip for easy and precise application to dark marks on the face.

HOW LONG BEFORE I START TO NOTICE A DIFFERENCE?
Superfade Cream and Face Cream work gradually and results should be evident after 6 weeks. Superfade Accelerator can be used to increase the speed of treatment (apply first).
Superfade Cream or Face Cream should be used 3 times a day (morning, afternoon/evening and before bed). As the pigmentation has usually developed over a long period of time, and hydroquinone works by disabling melanin-producing melanocytes deep in the skin, treatment usually takes 6-8 weeks to be effective.

WHAT IF I DON’T SEE AN IMPROVEMENT?
Fading is gradual, and can take several months. If fading is not evident after 3 months, ask your doctor for advice.

CAN SUPERFADE MAKE MY PIGMENTATION APPEAR DARKER?

Superfade should only be applied to the dark, age spots, not the surrounding "normal" skin. We understand that this can be difficult, but it sometimes results in the surrounding skin also becoming a little lighter and the age spot appearing darker before it fades. The fading process does take some time, so we would suggest that you continue using Superfade, being careful in its application. Results should begin to appear after 6-8 weeks. However, if the pigmentation does not fade within 3 months, we would suggest consulting your doctor, as the mark may not be simple pigmentation.
Superfade Face Cream is available in a special applicator pack that makes application to only the dark marks easier and more precise.

CAN SUPERFADE BE USED TO FADE DARK SKIN?

We do not recommend Superfade Cream or Face Creams for lightening the overall colour of dark skin. Dark skinned people should avoid long term and repeated use as this could result in hyper-pigmentation (darkening) of the skin. This can result in uneven darkening rather than the desired skin lightening.

WHAT SHOULD SUPERFADE CREAM LOOK LIKE?
Superfade Cream and Face Cream is white. However it may darken on exposure to air, but this does not affect its efficacy. All Superfade products should be stored under 25 degrees C in a cool, dry place.

CAN SUPERFADE BE USED TO FADE FRECKLES?
Superfade does not simply fade skin by ‘bleaching’ it. Superfade works by disabling melanocytes deep in the skin that produce melanin which produces brown pigment. Freckles and other discolouration of the skin is the result of these melanocytes producing too much melanin, usually due to excess sun exposure, hormones or skin type.
We usually recommend Superfade is only applied to the pigmented areas due to the possibility of inflammation and irritation (redness) of the surrounding normal skin. You should test your skin by applying Superfade in a small, discreet area to see if you get any irritation. If the test area is OK after a couple of days, then start applying Superfade to the larger area. Freckles can be very stubborn. We have found that the best results occur when Superfade Cream or Face Cream is used 3 times a day for at least 6-8 weeks. Superfade Accelerator may also help. Accelerator prepares the skin and can make the treatment time of Superfade Cream or Face Cream shorter.
Since pigmentation and freckles are aggravated by sun exposure, it is very important to protect your skin against further damage by using an SPF30+ sunscreen.
Superfade Sunscreen SPF30+ and Superfade UV Day Shield SPF30+ are a broad spectrum, water resistant sunscreen. Perfect for applying to the back of hands (where many people get age-spots).

CAN SUPERFADE BE USED TO FADE SCARS?
Although Superfade is not primarily designed for scaring, we have seen some good results from treating pigmentation caused by scaring with Superfade.

CAN SUPERFADE BE USED ON ASIAN SKIN?
Superfade can be used on Asian skin, in accordance with the directions on the packaging; Superfade should only be applied to the area to be treated, not over the whole face.

CAN SUPERFADE BE USED DURING PREGNANCY AND BREASTFEEDING?
Superfade Cream and Superfade Face Cream are Pharmacy Medicines approved by Australia’s government agency, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA). While there is no specific instruction regarding pregnancy or breastfeeding from the TGA, we recommend that application of the creams should be avoided during pregnancy and breastfeeding except when applying to very small areas or as directed by your doctor.

CAN TEENAGERS USE SUPERFADE?
The simple answer to this question is yes, teenagers can use Superfade. The Therapeutic Good Administration recognises 12+ year olds as adults. However it is not recommended that children under 12 years use Superfade.
Since the pigmentation that Superfade is used for in adults is usually a combination of hormonal changes and long term sun damage, it is not usually apparent in children. Childhood freckles often appear and disappear without treatment and treatment with Superfade would be unnecessary. Of course, a doctor may recommend Superfade for a particular case, and the directions should be followed carefully.

CAN A PATIENT ON WARFARIN (BLOOD THINNERS) USE IT?
The small amount absorbed through the skin is OK, however if you are on any medication, please consult your doctor.

CAN I USE MAKEUP OVER SUPERFADE FACE CREAM?
Yes. Firstly apply Superfade Face cream to the specific area, then UV Day Shield all over the face, neck and chest. Then apply makeup. Wait a minute or so between each step for absorption.

WHY CAN’T I PURCHASE SUPERFADE CREAM OR SUPERFADE FACE CREAM ONLINE?
Superfade Cream and Superfade Face Cream are Pharmacy Medicines approved by Australia’s government agency, the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and therefore can only be sold by a registered Pharmacist within a Pharmacy environment in the Australia market, therefore is unavailable to purchase online. We are also unable to send out samples of this product. Being a Pharmacy Medicine, registered by the Therapeutics Goods Administration, it is not a cosmetic or simple skincare product. We can export however, so be sure to email us with your request.

MY SUPERFADE HAS DISCOLOURED, HAS IT GONE OFF?
When manufactured, Superfade Cream is white and creamy. It can darken on exposure to air, but this does not affect its efficacy. All Superfade products should be stored under 25°C in a cool, dry place.

DOES SUPERFADE CREAM OR SUPERFADE FACE CREAM CONTAIN A FRAGRANCE?
No, neither of these products contain any fragrances.

I HAVE HAD A REACTION TO SUPERFADE, WHY WOULD THIS BE?
Hydroquinone is a potent active that helps fade unwanted pigmentation by disabling the melanocytes that produce melanin (the brown colouring in your skin). Unfortunately, sometimes hydroquinone can irritate skin, and this is more likely on the delicate facial skin. You should always test your skin by applying Superfade in a small, discreet area to see if you get any irritation. Many people do not do this first. If the test area is OK after a couple of days, then start applying Superfade to the larger area. Superfade is approved by the TGA as a pharmacy medicine, it is not a simple cosmetic. Be sure to send us back your product (with the receipt) and we will honour our money back guarantee.

IS THERE ANY ANIMAL TESTING FOR SUPERFADE?
Whenever we can, we avoid ingredients that have tested on animals and we do not conduct any animal testing ourselves. However Superfade is a Pharmacy Medicine, approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (the government body that controls and approves the medicines available in Australian). This approval process generally requires extensive testing, which may have included animal testing. Superfade was originally approved for the Australian market over 25 years ago when tests would have been conducted under very different social and scientific conditions. We understand and appreciate the personal stand on this issue, but we are unable to confirm that no ingredients in Superfade have ever been tested on animals.

A Great Pigmentation Fading Product

5/5
I tried this product after a lady at my work recommended it to me and after using it for 8 weeks I am surprised at how well it worked. When I bought this product I didn’t expect much - maybe a slight difference however the results have been great. I started to notice that the pigmentation on my arms was fading after about 2-3 weeks and within 8 weeks it was much lighter and in some areas it is HARDLY VISIBLE. This is a great product, which I would recommend and will keep using to fade pigmentation on other parts of my body.

Remarkable Results

5/5
Just wanted to write to tell how happy I am with the superfade face cream and accelerator. I had quite some pigmentation marks on my forehead and cheeks and they are almost gone. I have tried so many other products and treatments that claim to help with pigmentation but don't deliver results that the Superfade cream has done. I actually was expecting results to take longer but my partner commented on how clear my skin has become. Your products have worked wonders and am truly amazed at the results. I will definitely be recommending them to others. Keep up the great work.
