This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information
Clinically proven treatment for fading age spots
pigmentation on the face to reveal clearer, more
youthful skin

Brown skin blemishes and freckles occur when
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

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
Also contains exfoliant and sunscreen.

Drug Interactions
If a pigmented spot or mole has recently become darker , changed colour, becomes itchy or bleeds do not use this product on it and see your doctor immediately. Do not use on children. Do not use near eyes. Dark skinned people should avoid long term and repeated use to lighten overall colour as this could result in hyper pigmentation of the skin.

Mild irritation may occur, stop use if it becomes severe. If fading is not evident within 3 months, seek doctor’s advice. Avoid exposure to the sun. This product may darken on exposure to air, but this does not affect its efficacy. This product contains sulphites.

Always read the label. Use only as directed.
Common Uses

• Features: Blocks the enzyme tyrosinase in the melanocyte cells in the skin, so preventing them from converting the amino acid tyrosine into the pigment melanin.

• Benefits: Stops further pigmentation being produced in the skin’s tissue.


• Features: A potent Beta Hydroxy Acid exfoliating agent able to significantly increase the rate of skin cell turnover, so decreasing the amount of pigmented skin layers and thus the intensity of the colour. May also increase the penetration of hydroquinone to reach the melanocytes.

• Benefits: Reduces more heavily pigmented skin cells and aids in the correction process.


• Features: A UVB sunscreen able to block the burning UV sun rays responsible for triggering increased melanin production.

• Benefits: Helps prevent further sun damage which can cause pigmentation.
Before commencing treatment test for allergic reaction over 24 hours with small patch of cream on inside of upper arm.

Rub sparingly into affected areas twice during the day and once at night, 30 minutes prior to bed. After desired fading is obtained use only as necessary to maintain results. Superfade Face Cream is non greasy and can be worn under make-up.
