Glycolic Acid

Sugar cane is the surprising source of the Glycolic Acid used in Dr. Murad’s formulas. Glycolic is a member of a class of naturally occurring substances called Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) that have been used to refresh complexions since Cleopatra took her first milk bath. AHA’s exfoliate by loosening the bonds that bind dulling dead cells to skin’s surface. Dr. Murad discovered that Glycolic acid is uniquely well suited to skincare because it gently and evenly exfoliates to smooth skin while stimulating natural renewal of the surface. Dr. Murad also discovered that adding Glycolic Acid to many of his formulas makes it easier for other key skincare ingredients to penetrate deep into the skin’s surface layers.

Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum 4.6 5 428 439
I absolutely love this product. I had a few age spots that I was very self conscious about. I spent thousands of dollars on expensive prescription creams and laser treatments with not much satisfaction. Since I started using this product 6 months ago, the spots have almost disappeared. Thank you! July 22, 2009
Wow! This is the real deal! I bought the sampler because the bottle seemed expensive. I have a series of dark spots below my eye from calcium deposits. The spots looked bad and almost like a tattoo. Just with the sample size, I saw them incredibly lighter within the first week! They are fading! I was worried it would lighten my complexion but I read that it just leaves your skin tone back to what it is genetically. I'm going to finish my sample size that I got in the starter kit and then buy a bottle. This is now part of my normal skin care routine. I think I will see them fade away completely after a few months. I am so excited to see my natural face again! February 8, 2015
A M A Z I N G I was on the fence about buying this, just because products like these haven't really worked for me in the past, and if they did, they took an excruciatingly long amount of time. I have a few post inflammatory acne scars, and it works better than I ever expected. I didn't know they had an acne scar serum when I purchased this, but I'm very happy with the results on this specific one, so I'm definitely repurchasing!! When they say 85% of people said spots lighten in just one week, that couldn't be truer! About 3/4 weeks in, and my scars are almost completely GONE. Within the first week, they became almost unnoticeable! Worth 100% of every penny. This product has made me feel more confident and proud of my skin! Something I wasn't able to say for months! January 28, 2015
Really works! I had dark spots and sun spots and after using this for 2 weeks, I can't believe how much they've faded. Plus, it really keeps my skin glowing and taut. Love this product. Highly recommended December 24, 2014

serum turning brown- OK to use?

I stopped using the lightening serum for a while but then noticed some spots from being outside this summer so got it back out but noticed its turning brown. I feel bad tossing it because half of the serum is left and its pricey. Will it still work if its changing color? Will anything bad happen from using it this way?

Answer: 
I am so sorry for any concern the change in color may have caused. The discoloration (turns brown) of the Lightening Gel is a normal reaction of this formula due to exposure to air and/or high temperature. This is result of sensitivity to oxidation of the 2% Hydroquinone Skin Lightener. We package this formula in a glass bottle with tight pump to minimize the probabilities of discoloration. If maintained at room temperature and in the same condition (tight pump) as when shipped the product should maintain it's normal color for the 24 months of shelf life. Early discoloration would lead me to believe that it either had a loose pump or was exposed to abnormal high temperatures. The discoloration is only an aesthetic condition but there is no safety concern.

Answers

Answer: 
Are you using sunscreen diligently? It is crucial to be able to insure results. An SPF 15 protects against 94% of UVB rays whiles an SPF 30 protects against 97%. Anything higher is only about a 1% increase which can provide people with a false sense of security. The reality is that most people don't apply enough. Protection can be decreased with clothing rubbing the sunscreen off, sweating or being in water. In light of the various factors that can decrease protection we do recommend reapplying once every 2 hours to maintain a constant level of protection, regardless of the SPF.

Answer: 
Murad does not release the percentages of ingredients in our formulas except when required by law. We consider our formulas proprietary however I can tell you that all formulas follow FDA and CIR recommendations and have the appropriate pH to provide the best environment for your skin.

By looking at just an ingredient, not the formulation, you can indeed miss out on the bigger picture. It is similar to a recipe. You can not have a good chocolate cake without things like eggs, flour, milk etc. While it is chocolate, all the ingredients is what makes it so good.

Answers

Answer: 
The Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum will help lighten the pigmentation that concerns you. The most important thing to keep in mind is that the sun causes pigmentation to darken so it is very important to use sunscreen, especially when you are using a product containing hydroquinone. The minimum SPF recommended is SPF 15. Murad has several moisturizing sunscreens to choose from and that will meet your skin concern needs.

Both the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum and the Post Acne Spot Lightening Gel are designed to lighten dark pigmentation, however, they are slightly different. The Post Acne Spot Lightening Gel has Willow Bark Extract and Tee Tree Oil to help with breakouts while the Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum contains Hexapeptide-2, an advanced skin lightening peptide.

Answers

Answer: 
We do not recommend Rapid Age Spot Pigment and Lightening Serum be used by pregnant or lactating women. Hydroquinone is an OTC drug and has not been tested by the FDA on pregnant or lactating women. In its place we recommend Advanced Active Radiance Serum. Please be advised that while Murad undergoes all possible safety testing for the quality and efficacy of our products, we have not conducted specific testing for pregnant or lactating women. Dr. Murad recommends that women who are pregnant or lactating consult their physician before using any Murad products.
