A general expression for the four-point function with vanishing total R-charge of anti-chiral and chiral superfields in N=1 superconformal theories is given. It is obtained by applying the exponential of a simple universal nilpotent differential operator to an arbitrary function of two cross ratios. To achieve this the nilpotent superconformal invariants according to Park are focused. Several dependencies between these invariants are presented, so that eight nilpotent invariants and 27 monomials of these invariants of degree d>1 are left being linearly independent. It is analyzed, how terms within the four-point function of general scalar superfields cancel in order to fulfill the chiral restrictions.
