Almost every country, state, and the city allows the marketing and supply of skin lightening and skin glowing products and on the top of it people believe on the tactics used and start consuming them. For all, it is very necessary to understand the type of product that we use and its resulting consequences.
The Food and Drug Authority has strictly prohibited the sale of any kind of product that contains skin bleaching ingredient hydroquinone.
As this skin bleaching item has the potential to cause cancer and so Ghana is trying to avert the use of such products.
The ban and discouragement has led to the minimised use of product like Fair and lovely.
Take Nigeria or Senegal, both of them include 60 % to 70 % rate of usage of skin rejuvenating products.
This concept of having fair skin is not new; it belongs way back to colonial times when the rulers were whites.
Well done, Ghana! Great job as these products can only harm consumers. And so from 2016, the acceptance of skin related products is going to be zero.
Time to wake up! Start loving your skin !!
