Foluke Daramola

The craze around being light-skinned today would make one wonder if there’s anything wrong with being dark-skinned. Television commercials, advert companies, the movie industry, and the media generally are not helping matters when skin colour is involved. Despite movements such as Black is Beautiful, Black Don’t Crack and lots of other slogans, many people feel being of lighter skin is more attractive.

Bobrisky

Social media personality and Nigerian cross-dresser Bobrisky who is known as a transgender woman in Nigeria, a country with no LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) right, is in the beauty business, so little wonder he/she has to advertise what he is selling. Bobrisky sells cream too so she wowed fans when he moved from dark to fair skin, drawing the attention of those interested in skin lightening and transgender issues.

Benson Okonkwo

Nollywood actor Benson Okonkwo is highly favoured in this list since he is the only proud male to show off his dark elbow and knuckles, Bleaching cream is definitely the greatest.

Skin bleaching refers to the use of products to lighten dark areas of the skin or achieve an overall lighter complexion. These products include bleaching creams, soaps, and pills, as well as professional treatments like chemical peels and laser therapy.

Last year January, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) warned about the dangers of many skin whitening products in the market, saying they can cause skin cancer and kidney failure.

The Agency’s Director General, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, gave the warning.

“In Nigeria we have a lot of use of dangerous chemicals. One is Glutathione used as an injection. People inject it under their skins, with a promise that they will be lighter in a week or two.

“From Glutathione injection to other chemicals, the reason why we are so concerned about Glutathione is because it can cause skin cancer.

“It can cause kidney dysfunction and failure and this is what young people don’t know.

“First, philosophically I don’t know why somebody wants to bleach their skin, you should be proud of your colour because, when you cross that threshold of desiring to be lighter, problems are associated with it.”

Adeyeye said the agency’s Investigation and Enforcement Directorate would continue its surveillance to raid stores of illegal and unregistered whitening chemicals.

The skin bleaching continues unabated as skin lightening cream vendors laugh all the way to the bank.
