John Plunkett's Superfade Face Cream assists in fading brown skin blemishes on the face. Superfade Face Cream's unique effective formula helps fade freckles and age spots. Brown skin blemishes and freckles occur when extreme pigmentation has resulted from the effects 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. Results can be seen on the face in 6-8 weeks. Superfade Face also contains sunscreen and exfoliant. It is non greasy and can be worn under makeup. Superfade Face works by fading out pigmentation giving a more even skin tone which makes the skin appear more youthful!
