                    • Brand Expert

                      A:

                      Typically we only disclose the percentage of an ingredient only when it is an "active ingredient" in other words, an OTC (over-the-counter), FDA (Food & Drug Administration) approved ingredient. In this product the percentages of ingredients are considered proprietary. What I can share with you is that Dr. Murad creates formulas based on a result not a percentage. Our products are designed to treat a specific concern within the skin, keeping in mind our Connected Beauty approach.
                      We do state however that we follow Cosmetic Ingredient Review Board's (CIR) guidelines in regards to AHA (Glycolic and Lactic Acid) percentages and pH levels for safety. The guidelines are as follows: have up to 10% and not be lower than pH 3.5.

                    Does this serum work for hyperpigmentation or is it only to be used for all over radiance?

                      A:

                      This serum will help with both. It contains glycolic acid that will help speed up cell turnover which will help to exfoliate the darker skin pigmentation. Indian Fig also helps to brighten skin and minimize darker spots.
                      Murad also makes a product called Rapid Spot Pigment and Lightening (Item #: 2082341)
                      - this was designed to lighten dark pigmentation.

                      We have not had any complaints from users with oily skin. It can leave a glow/radiance on the skin that some people with oily skin might think looks "shiny."

                    • Brand Expert

                      A:

                      Dark spots from ingrown hair are similar to dark spots caused by acne. We typically treat those dark spots from ingrown hairs the same way we would treat dark spots from acne. The best product for this concern is the Post-Acne Spot Lightening Gel, http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=prod2146523.
                      It will help to lighten those dark spots. Because it contains glycolic it will help to quicken cellular turnover which will get rid of dead skin faster. This will help to prevent ingrown hairs, too!

                      A:

                      Yes, this serum can be applied twice daily as part of your morning and evening skincare regimen. Alternatively, if you use a renewing/resurfacing night treatment (such as retinol, AHAs, or skin lightening products) like Murad Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum, you can use Advanced Active Radiance Serum once daily as your morning antioxidant skin treatment.
