Hydroquinone, widely used in skin lightening creams, is soon to be banned altogether.BY Prisca McGuire

Poisoning, convulsions, asthma, leukaemia, liver damage, anaphylactic shock and infertility are not conditions normally associated with cosmetics. However, prolonged use of certain cosmetic creams, which contain bleaching agents, has been linked with all of the above.
In recent years, despite rigorous campaigning to raise awareness about the dangers of excessive exposure to the sun, the serious health risks which can arise from using unregulated bleaching creams has received little or no attention.

Why bleach?
Black skin renews itself quickly, rapidly producing new skin cells, this ability for regeneration keep our skin’s looking younger for longer. Whenever Black skin is damaged or traumatised, it produces an excess of melanin in the area. This hyper-pigmentation can result in a humble spot or cut producing a dark patch where it is healed. Skin bleaches are often used in an attempt to even out skin tone or remove dark patches caused by injury. However, in some sections of the society, particularly in African communities, skin bleaches are used to lighten the skin in the misguided belief that a lighter complexion is better.

The production of the most commonly used bleaching agent, hydroquinone (chemical formula C6H6O2), came about by accident, after Black workers in a rubber plant found that when a certain chemical came into contact with their skin it caused light patches of skin. The workers sued for damages as a result of their injuries, but their ‘discovery’ led to the commercial production of cosmetic creams containing hydroquinone as a bleaching agent.

Hydroquinone is a very powerful chemical that it used as the key ingredient in the photographic process of development, but is also used in the rubber industry as an antioxidant, and as an agent in hair dyes. Mercury is another product often used in some cosmetic products as a bleaching agent. Severly toxic, it can cause skin to go grey or blue black, rather than lighter, and in many cases has resulted in the user suffering from mercury poisoning.

How do they work?
Bleaching creams work by stripping the skin of its natural pigmentation. However, in dark skinned people, the pigmentation is the skin’s natural protection from the sun. Bleaching doesn’t just superficially lighten the skin, it alters the skin’s ‘natural’ structure, removing and inhibiting the production of the colour creating melanin.
Once the skin has been ‘bleached’ it loses its natural protective barrier, making it susceptible to damage by the sun’s rays. This is also why many bleaching products contain either sunscreen, or come with instructions advising people to use sun protection creams along with the product. Prolonged use of these bleaching products can also prevent the formation of melanin in the deeper basal layers of the skin, which will leave the skin lighter, but also leave it more vulnerable to damage. Hydroquinone in particular, has been found to damage the connective tissue in the skin and cartilage, hence its removal from skincare products.

People who use bleaching products can end up with rough and blotchy skin, and then get caught up in the ‘bleaching trap’ by using more cream to try and correct the problem, and by doing so, find themsevles causing even more damage to their skin. Alternatively, they may find that because of exposure to the sun, their ‘lightened skin’ gets darker.

Anti-bleaching campaigns
Up until now it has been legal to sell and promote skin bleaches which contain a maximum of two per cent hydroquinone. Although there is anecdotal evidence of shops selling under the counter creams that contain over this legal limit. Even at national and international levels, standards differ. For example, anyone caught travelling to the Gambia with cosmetics containing hydroquinone is subject to a large fine. Yet, another African country was recently prepared to pay research scientist Sujata Jolly, two million pounds to develop a bleaching cream.

Sujata told us, ‘I couldn’t take the contract. Having seen the terrible effects skin bleaching has had on some people, there was no way I was prepared to take the contract, no matter how much money they offered.’ She said, ‘I’ve been campaigning against the use of bleaching creams for years, and have written and appealed to health ministers in an attempt to get them to do something, because I feel so strongly about the dangers of using these creams.’

Sujata adds that she’s not alone. Southwark Council’s Trading Standards Council recently led a campaign against the use of bleaching creams. The campaigning efforts have finally paid off, because this time next year, hydroquinone will no longer be approved as a bleaching agent for use in cosmetic creams in
the UK.

The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has received a directive (Twenty-fourth Commission Directive), from the European Commission, banning the use of hydroquinone as a skin lightener. The draft of the directive clearly states that ‘Harmful secondary effects have been shown to arise following prolonged use of hydroquinone as a skin-lightening cream. This particular use of hydroquinone must not therefore be authorised’. This means that not even the current allowance of two per cent of hydroquinone in cosmetics will be approved by law. Member states are already taking measures to implement the directive. However, worryingly, some major cosmetic companies are not even aware of the directive.

    A reply to my mailings on bleaching got this helpful:

    Akli,

    This article is god sent. I dont know if you know that I am working as a licensed esthethician in Washington , DC and I have so many
    African clients that have permenately damaged their skin with bleach.

    A little sun screen every day will take care of uneven skin tones and prevent cancer causing cells from starting. Our Mothers used to say stay out of the sun. This advice is so timely as the sun is our worst enemy for different reasons now. The mantra should be use sun screen not bleach.

    Peace and love

  2. linda Says:

  3. Yeye Akilimali Funua Olade Says:

    linda,Sister,normally your skin repairs the damage after you STOP so STOP! Then don’t put any thing on your face powder etc. until every thing is normal again.If you then pray about it that will do the trick. If you are not alright with that then you can consult the specialist I have posted on this entry, Latifa Jennifer in D>C>above.

  4. linda Says:

    • Yeye Akilimali Funua Olade Says:

      J Monique, Sister you must wake up! Stop bleaching! Bleaching will eventually kill you and you won’t see your children live! It destroys your body tissue bit by bit and it makes you subject to early aging. Being lighter is not better cause BLACK is more beautiful! The Blacker you are the better! Don’t mind these bad whites who brainwashed us to believe they are beautiful when they are actually the ugliest thing going! Wake up to your BLACK BEAUTY! Stop from today! LIVE YOUR LIFE BLACK AND BEAUTIFUL! READ ABOUT BLACK HISTORY MORE SO THAT YOU CAN begin to appreciate the greatness of what God has done for you! Start with The Destruction of Black Civilization by Chancellor Williams(Amazon has it or look /order it on my BLACK BOOKS YOU MUST READ catagory)! Become BLACK and BEAUTIFUL and PROUD of how GOD made you!

    • maria Says:

      what bleaching cream do you use, I would like to only use it on my elbows and knees. I hate how weird it looks, I’m light carmel and I don’t want to change my skin tone, I just want my dark elbows to go away.

  9. nadine Says:

    im bleaching my skin with product who do not content hydro. my skin looks lighter and everyone thinkthat i look very beautiful. i was very dark and people did not want to be my friend because i live in a white people’s country: australia. i also want to get in the entertainment industry and this will never be possible if im too dark.get real people look at black celeb, they are all light skinned, beyonce, rihanna ciara and so on.i have a pretty face and a slim body, but i needed to bleach my skin for a nice complexion. just find the right bleaching cream.black skinned girl are not successful, it is a fact.im sorry and ashamed to say that but that is what is happening in america and around the world.look at all girl celeb. who is dark skinned?

    • Loz Says:

      Hi I’ve been bleaching my skin for a long time. Now that hydro has been banned in the UK i’m struggling to find a lotion or cream that works. I would like to use a cream or lotion thats safe and also takes your skin tone 4/5 shade lighter.

      Many thanks

      • Yeye Akilimali Funua Olade Says:

        Loz you will keep getting that chemical in your skin and you skin will start getting skin cancer and in 20yrs or more you will die of skin cancer like other bleaching Black people have died,like Michael Jackson would have died of if drugs had not killed him first. MJ had skin cancer from bleaching before he died so-bleach and die! wake up and be proud of the color God gave you! Don’t kill yourself!STOP BLEACHING BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!

    • Olu Says:

      Nadine,
      You sound so young using the statement, “I was very dark and people did not want to be my friend”..!!!!!!! If people do not want to be your friend because of the colour of your skin then they are not worth it. You do not seem to think much of yourself if you want those type of people in your life. People think you look beautiful because you are light skinned???? I thank God i have made my daughter realise beauty is only skin deep. I have been told all my life, “your so pretty, cute”..thats not important in a person to be honest. If someone is pretty but shows no respect for herself or anyone else then thats so sad.
      Australia is not a “white people’s country” please read your history. Australian Aborigines are all shades of black and are very proud of their background. I pray you do not pass on these negative thoughts to your children in the future with comments like “black skinned girl are not successful”???!!! Do you have a degree???? are you successful now you are faking a lighter skin tone???? Famous black skinned women include william sisters, MICHELLE OBAMA, Jill Marie Jones, Gabourey Sidibe, Gabrielle Union, Angie Stone, Alex Wek, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Fantasia to name a few.
      What country are you originally from? Did your family not say you were beautiful no matter what?? I feel so sad for you that you feel this way about yourself and i know you will seek out a white man to make sure your children are light skinned right?

      • Nnena Says:

        Thank you Olu! Your words are true and very inspirational. I am a dark skinned girl and I grew up hearing stupid things like “your ugly becuase your dark, or smile so that your face lightens up” and so on and so on. At times I get so angry when I hear my black friends complaining that they dont want to stay too long in the sun becuase they will get darker. For goodness sake, they have black skin so its not even like they should be as worried about skin cancer like white people should be. Stuff like that makes me so angy. I cant wait to have children as black as me, so that I can teach them to be strong and love themselves no matter what society says. As you referred to, success does not just come by how you look. It comes through many ways such as in a degree/ education etc. I love my skin and any one who has a problem with it does not deserve to even be in my company. Its funny too becuase I see all of these white people trying to get a tan to get their skin darker, yet some black peopl feel the need to lighten their skin or favor those black people who are lighter. This confuses me because those same black people will turn around and say they cant stand white people and start running their mouths about racism etc. I apologize for the length of this post lol. Thank you once again for the truth you have exposed on this topic.

      • Mpho Says:

        ThanK you Olu, You answered that Nadia gal well.

        I also hope she wont be braunwashing her children or other people’s children into believing that being black was a mistake.

        Indeed black is beautiful, and no one rocks it like black confident people…

    • Black and loving myself Says:

      oh so they did not think you were beautiful before you started using the cream?

  10. TeaPea Says:

    Nadine,
    What are you using or if there is anyone else who can suggest something to use to lighten my dark spots.
    I have been suffering from acne all my life and I am now in my 40’s. I have scaring and discoloration all on my face. I just want my face to have an even tone so I don’t have to wear heavy make-up that usually melts off by the end of the day anyway.

  11. saabu Says:

    Pls help me. I bleeched before one and half month, but now i feel i have brown hairs in my cheek which is too visible. Will i get my natural colour back . Pls reply

    • Yeye Akilimali Funua Olade Says:

      saabu, stop bleaching and your natural color will come back. Believe me. And never bleach again. God has given you your color so don’t think you know better than God and be grateful for it and improve on it! Bleach and die! Bleaching leads to skin cancer and cancer you know is death!

      • Smith Says:

        Hi, I’m a mixed race kid. You see I’m very fair but there are just a few areas like my knees and elbows that are dark. Those are the only areas I bleach. Is that bad. And will those areas darken back eventually? Please reply, as I really need to know. Thanks.

  12. Yeye Akilimali Funua Olade Says:

    nadine, you must stop trying to be who you are not! not only will you kill your self in the process of trying to be lighter like your white oppressors in Australia,but you will continue to have low self esteem and suffer from a inferity complex which means you will never do your best in anything. STOP WANTING TO BE LIKE THE WHITES ! GOD HAS MADE YOU BLACK AND BEAUTIFUL! and if people around you don’t know your beauty you must move closer to God and know HIS LOVE for you and the Wisdom of HIS MAKING you BLACK skin. Venus and Serena Williams did not let white people tell them they are ugly and they are now the most famous BLACK skinned beauties in the world. You must learn to believe in yourself by moving close to GOD! Then learn BLACK history to see how these people you want to imitate stoled all they have from the BLACK RACE! you will never be happy and successful until you learn to love you own BLACK beautiful SELF the way GOD made you!

  13. BLACK USA Says:

    Please Help Yeye! I am a Black American woman who was introduced to bleaching by my Nigerian boyfriend, who suggested I use a bleaching cream for my dark elbows. I started using it 5 years ago and I can not stop. It is hard because I get such a overwhelming positive response. I get presents, gifts, money, and I am treated like a queen because of my light skin.
    I would like to stop, but when I try to stop using the product my brown skin becomes darker than it orginally was before. I even have some of the side effects that are stated above and I could not figure out why I was having these problems. I started getting stretch marks that looked like tire marks and I am thin. I also have a strange body odor (fishy) that I can not contain. I could not figure out what was causing this odor. I went to the doctor and the doctor said I was fine. I am very afraid because I didn’t know that these bleaching creams had such terrible side effects. What can I do to get back normal?

    • Yeye Akilimali Funua Olade Says:

      BLACK USA, Sister please call Jennifer Johnson who replied above with her address etc. cause she is a professional at this and know what to do. But remember you can right this moment reach out to God and asked HIM to heal you and ask for forgiveness for denying HIS PERFECT CREATION THAT HE MADE YOU!

  14. van Says:

    please add those buttons to add this page in facebook and other communities as many people don’t know about the bleaching creams negative effects

  15. LoveLife Says:

    Hey Yeye, im a 18 year old black female, who has the worst stretchmarks in the world.. I was going to turn to bleaching because nothing else works and i cant afford expensive treatments… Is there anything else to do before i change my mind again??

    • jack Says:

      Honey, the best thing for stretch marks is first acceptance, then the realisation that they will fade naturally with time. Secondly, skin with lots of melanin CAN NOT be moisturised with MINERAL OILS (just about every “beauty product”) Try using just vegetable based oil on your skin. Pure coconut oil (NOT PALMERS, It is 90% Petrolatum) is the best because of the Lauric acid that also slough off dead or excess skin or even virgin olive oil (the secret of Beautiful Italian and Greek skin) , Shea and almond oils are also excellent (expensive) Good luck

  16. Yeye Akilimali Funua Olade Says:

    LoveLife,Sister contact Jennifer Johnson above maybe the lst or second comment quickly. She is trained to know the safe things to do to solve that problem. Just make sure you don’t add the problems of bleaching to your life and thereby shorten your LIFE! Stay away from bleaching! Bleach and die!

    Hello Yeye,

    Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom on this subject. I am a 27 year old black creole women who has been bleaching for about 5 years, and today with the help of my Creator is my last day. Thank you so much for the warning and may GOD bless you.
    I was naive to think my body was uneven because my face, arms and legs was darker than my chest and the devil is a liar. Truthfully, I am proud to be a dark skin sister and I feel so betrayed with all these false images and false advertisement.
    And I was wondering if there’s any natural soaps and body lotion you could recommend for me to use with no BLEACHING chemicals. I BELIEVE GOD has a plan for my life and its time I walk in my destiny unashamed black or blue, lol.

    Keep up the good work!

    THIS IS AN ARTICLE BY A NIGERIAN SISTER WHO POINTS OUT WHY NIGERIAN WOMEN SHE KNOWS BLEACH. BUT NOTE THAT EVEN WHEN SHE WAS YOUNG SHE GOT SLAPPED FOR TELLING A BLEACHING AUNTIE THAT NO MAN WOULD MARRY A WOMAN WHO BLEACHED. AND THAT IS A VALID POINT FOR THE AFRICAN WOMAN. Sure yellow,bleaching girls get plenty of attention but when African go for wives they even prefer Black dark skinned wives as they are stronger, beauty last forever and are less jealous! No African relative would approve of a woman who bleaches as a wife!

    Nigeria: Bleaching And Coloured Women

    What is being black to you? Is your black colour so dark that whenever you see a black woman on TV who is light skinned, you ever wish you had the same colour as her?

    As an African, or to be politically correct a “black person”, why do you feel the need to bleach your skin to look lighter? Do you believe that by bleaching your skin, you might be more sought after by men? In our culture, especially in Nigeria, it is a well known piece of information that light skinned women are more favoured than their dark skinned sisters. Some consider identifies being light skinned to be synonymous with beauty. Evidently, when a very dark skinned or a light skinned woman enter a room, the one to get the attention would probably be the light skinned woman. When your skin is lighter; it automatically calls attention to you.

    When I was in Nigeria, to bleach one’s skin was very much in fashion. There was a time in Nigeria, when almost all the women bleaching their skin or rather, toning their skin to give them a lighter complexion, although, then, it never occurred to me, why women bleach their skin, I considered it normal. Until I grew up and began to understand the dangers of bleaching one’s skin. The beauty of a woman is mostly her skin, you can tell a lot about a woman, just by looking at her skin and how healthy it is. During my time of adolescence, my thinking was that, it was a natural thing for women to lighten their skin in order to be beautiful, but as time went by, I saw it differently. The women I knew whilst growing up, were reacting badly towards the creams they are used to bleach. After prolonged bleaching, the skin deteriorates into a different shade, which looks dirty and wrinkled. For older African women who reside in Africa, the side effects of bleaching are never to their favour, as the Weather and of course, nature deal with their skin in a way that would make one puke. It was mostly a horrid sight, seeing rubbery, burnt skin on a person’s face.

    So why do African women bleach their skin? This question has been asked numerous times by academicians and of course the man on the street. Simply put, African women bleach their skin to look beautiful and in a way, to look more like their Western sisters, who are much fairer. During the colonial times in Africa, it was said that if you were a black woman and light skinned, life was much easier, as being light was almost like to being white. It is not hidden that Africans prefer black women who are light in complexion.

    As a female who grew up in a female dominated household, I witnessed Aunties mixing different types of bleaching creams, to fade away their natural skin tone, in order to be accepted by society and of course, date rich men. The lighter you are in Nigeria, the better your chances of success, said one of my aunties. My aunty, whom I call Aunty A, is not your conventional beauty, but she was one who made the best of what God gave her by enhancing her skin tone so she could get the right job or man. When I was about twelve years old, I sat down one afternoon with Aunty A in the kitchen. She was about to mix her bleaching cream and I asked her why she felt the need to bleach. Head bowed, mixing her creams, she smiled and said it helps in the society that we live in. She said I should take a look at her. At her age (then 31), she had no boyfriend, she had no job. She could not understand why she could not get a job in Nigeria, even though she had the right qualifications and to make it worse, neither did she have a boyfriend. She said she’d noticed that all the women that were favoured in Nigeria were mostly light skinned women, and as soon as she’d realised that, she knew she had a private war on her hands. She got some money together and bought bleaching creams so she could get a job and at least get a man that would marry her, and true to her words, after she began to bleach, she went for about five job interviews and finally got a job. However, she could still not get the man of her dreams. Once her salary was paid to her, most of it was spent on bleaching her skin, to enable her to attract the man of her dreams. I asked her what sort of man she thought bleaching her skin would attract and with a glow on her face, she gave a wide smile and said, “Of course, rich men.” I had never laughed so much in my life. At twelve, I didn’t know much, but I knew that my knowledge surpassed my Aunty A’s, as she had no clue. She actually thought by bleaching her skin, she would attract a rich guy. My reply to her was that she should stop bleaching, as I doubted that any sensible man would want to marry a 31-year old with bleached skin. She gave me a knock on the head! true to testimony, she did stop bleaching her skin and got a man. She is now happily married.

    To be fair to African women, especially the ones in the diaspora, it is very hard to be a success in this world, as you will find so many hindrances would be placed on your feet; It is not easy for African women in the diasporas, it can be problematic being very dark skinned. In the Western culture, you are mostly judged by your appearance, how you speak and how you present yourself. Being black is almost a curse in the world we live in today. No matter how educated and enlightened you are, once your skin colour is black, the boundaries are set for you. You are invisibly set invisible limit on how high you can go in the Western world. One must also point out that the issue of women bleaching their skin does not only lie in the Western world, it is in every part of Africa. Wherever there are black people, you will always come across black men and women who bleach their skin in order to look the part.(NOTE FROM ME YEYE: I DON’T AGREE THAT BLACK SKIN IS A CURSE EVEN IN THE WHITE WORLD! BUT MEDIA PROJECTS WHITE BEAUTY AND SO WE MUST FIGHT THAT BY KNOWING THAT GOD GAVE YOU YOUR COLOR FOR A BEAUTIFUL REASON!)

    I started using EpiquinMicro about 4 months after visiting a dermatologist. I quit using it recently, however have noticed the the area around the injury (I was bruised on my face – about the size of a penny) also was lightened. I did not want unexpected lightening, so will my normal skin tone come back over time? I do agree that bleaching agents are too harsh, but for someone that me that was unfortunately bruised, do I have any alternative?

    Dangers of Skin Bleaching
    Shocking info on how bleaching can endanger your health.

    Tyra has met women willing to do almost anything to lighten the color of their skin … including the use of bleach, despite the negative or harmful side effects. What’s really scary is that you can buy bleaching creams in stores across the country. While these creams are intended to be used on small spots to reduce scarring, as we saw on the show, some women slather creams over their entire bodies. But is the result worth the risk — even if the risk is cancer? Read on for the scary side effects of these controversial creams.

    Mercury
    Even small doses of Mercury can cause neurological damage. This concern is so great, Minnesota has outlawed cosmetics like skin lighteners that intentionally feature it. But some “mom and pop” shops carry creams with that contain extreme levels of such ingredients.

    Hydroquinone
    This component of many skin-bleaching techniques is also found in film developing products. (Note: Your body is a work of art, but should you treat it like a chemically processed photo in a darkroom? We think not!) The idea of using this ingredient didn’t sound good to the French, who banned it for fear of cancer risks.

    Alpha Hydroxy Acids
    These are most commonly found in facial chemical peels, which are better known as procedures reserved for serious and infrequent skin overhauls administered by professionals. These should not be in anything you use at home regularly.

    Arsenic
    Most people hear this word and immediately think “poison,” which is exactly what arsenic is. Not something you want to find on the list of ingredients in your face cream, but that might be the case with some skin lighteners.

    Bleaching seems like a crazy idea, and I think it is, but before we look at the mothers and judge we should look at ourselves. white wemon get fake tans, that can cause cancer, they bleach their teeth, that kills the enammal. these bleaching girls are a reflection of our own society. bleaching is wrong, but so can the other beauty routiens. these mothers are emotinaly and physacally damaging their dark skined chindren, butthe bigger problom is why they are doing it. it is the parents job to teach their kids that they are beautiful, and that what makes a beautiful person is their heart and their head. we should take that episode as a sign that our society doesnt understand true beauty, and evey girl on this planet should see that and change.

    ok i understand why somebody would want to bleach, they don’t think they are pretty enough or beautiful. im a white teenage girl and i HATE the way i look!!! i will do anyting just to lose a little weight. and if i don’t lose any weight i feel like i’ve faild so i end up cutting my arms. but there is one thing that has helped me is know that everybody is beautiful in their own way!!!!

    Oh my God…i am black from africa. i have light brown shade. my favourate colour is the dark black that shines …like the colour of the lady that was complaining. also some white people want to look darker by tanning. what is wrong with people…i do not think it is about colour it is about self esteem issue. and abhoring once’s colour is a symptom of it. god has given you health and beauty and we complain about the blessings of God… Posted by kifaah 01/19/09 10:01 AM
    HEy. Does Bleaching the skin even work ???????? Like I think thats crazy…. If i get any bleach on my fingers it stings.. let alone on a childs whole body, thats outragous. awful. I thought black people stuck up for there race and really belived in it. This is crazy crazy crazy. Posted by Dont Understand 01/19/09 7:35 AM
    I would have to agree with Stephanie about showing both sides of the spectrum as it is all harmful whether it be UV lights or chemicals from bleaching chemicals. You have people like me that think black is beauty from one shade to the next. Posted by Kara 01/19/09 7:15 AM
    Hi Tyra! I saw the show on black women who bleach their skin. I have to tell you that I was shocked! I am a dark skin puertorican woman and I am overweight. I will tell you that when I look in the mirror I see the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. I’m proud of everything about me, including my skin color. These women are telling the world ‘I’m black, I’m minority, and I’m not worth much. What they dont understand is that we have to be proud of who we are no matter what size, color, shape and weight. If you dont deem yourself beautiful, nobody else will. One thing that i dont understand is the following’ black women are trying to be white (getting together with white men, straightening their hair, light colored contacts, and white women are trying to be black (curling the hair with perms, darkening the skin in tanning salons under the sun in the summertime and at tanning salons in the winter. Why cant we just love who we are and be the best we can be? I’m so sick of people not being happy with how god made them! Ramona Posted by Ramona 01/19/09 12:33 AM
    I knew of skin bleaching before watching the show from having lived in the Arab world. I would like you all to visit AVRF.org to see the faces of children who have **involuntarily** gone from black to white. This skin disease is called Vitiligo, and it needs to be recognized. I think the women on the show should be happy that they are one color. God makes us the way we are for a reason. Please visit AVRF.org and educate yourselves!! Posted by Jessica 01/18/09 8:37 PM
    Well, I am a brown skin young lady and proud of it. I wouldn’t change my skin color for the world and this is the attitude the women who are trying to bleach their skin should have because they are all beautiful. Dark skinned women are beautiful african americans as well. I do agree that they should be represented more in the media and videos. Posted by Quinita 01/18/09 8:02 PM
    Hi’ Tyra I watch your show every day and i saw the show about the black girl that was bleaching they body but they shouldn’t do it ,because black is beautiful and what count is the beauty of they heart so tell them that we love them very much the color don’t have anything to do with they color ok. and that does people out their they don’t have heart or feel to hurt black humam ok Thank you Diana Alicea Posted by Diana Alicea 01/18/09 5:50 PM
    Tyra, I DVR’d your show on skin bleaching and as a white woman I was a little offended when your undercover reporter was shocked to find out the creams were only marketed in “black” areas. As a white woman I wanted to let you know that tanning booths, which have harmful UV rays, are only marketed in “white” areas and that the tanning creams that they promote are named things such as “caramel delight” and “sensual chocolate”. It would have made more sense to me if you had shown both spectrums of caucasions tanning and african americans bleaching. It’s all the same, we just want to be something we’re not, sad as that is. Posted by Stephanie 01/18/09 5:24 PM
    TYRA I WATCHED THE SHOW AND WAS A LITTLE OFFENDED BECAUSE I AM A BEAUTIFUL DARK SKINNED WOMAN WITH SELF ESTEEM. ITS TRULY UNFORTUNATE THESE YOUNG LADIES TRULY LACK IN THIS AREA AND THAT’S TRULY WHAT THE BOTTOM LINE IS. ALSO I BELIEVE IF THESE YOUNG WOMEN RECEIVED POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS AT HOME OF HOW BEAUTIFUL THEY ARE AND THAT TRUE BEAUTY IS FROM THE INSIDE OUT THIS WOULD NOT BE AN ISSUE FOR THEM. MY PRAYER FOR THEM IS THAT THEY GROW IN ENOUGH SELF LOVE AND ACCEPT THEMSELVES FOR WHO THEY ARE AND HOW GOD MADE THEM. Posted by WANDA 01/18/09 4:09 PM
    PS- I think my saving grace is my personality . If i were’nt the way I am, Lord knows what I would’ve done to myself by now. Posted by MusiqJunkie16 01/18/09 4:05 PM
    I understand where the women on the show were coming from . I am a 16 year old dark-skinned female, insecure about my looks . I have had numerous thoughts about wanting to bleach my skin, etc. in order to make my complexion lighter. I have had guys that look right past me and on to my light-skin, modelesque friends ; “Friends” that have secluded me because I didn’t look like the rest of the light-skin girls. Not to add to the fact that they are all tall, beautiful, and built to perfection. I on the other hand am about 5′3, dark, and over-developed. [ I hate the stares from older gentlemen. ] You can see the difference in treatment between us all and it a serious problem that must be handled . I have no one to talk to because I highly doubt anyone would know how to react or help me. The only reason why i have not went through with these things to lighten my complexion is health reasons. Of course I have my days where I am the Fiercest Feline in the Jungle, but most of the time I’d rather live my life dark-skinned and average rather than light-skin and on an early ride to death. Just thought I’d share my experiences =], ~MusiqJunkie Posted by MusiqJunkie16 01/18/09 4:03 PM
    tyra your right this article just described my mom. she is willing to do anything to make her skin lighter. i have tried to convince her that its bad for her skin. i also tried telling her that she should be happy with the shade she is. i think its beautiful. but my mom doesnt seem to believe me and what i have to say what wouold you tell her? Posted by nisha patel 01/18/09 2:25 PM
    I agree with Tyra when she said on the show that the darker skin women who want to bleach are the victims of our color struck racist society that never celebrates dark skin especially in the media. I notice that black sitcoms and movies from years ago used dark skin women as love interest paired with the black man – you rarely see that today. Its almost like a dark skin black man cannot be in love with a dark skin woman in the media, he is always paired with a light skin or white woman. This sends a clear message to our african american men and women that having a light or white skin is more pretigious. If we dark skin women speak out – then you’re labeled jealous or player hating. It really hurts when your own brothers reject you and that’s when the bleaching extreme happens. Personally, I am brown skin and love my complexion, but I find dark skin stunning. They are show stoppers on the runway etc. Hurray for Barrack & Michelle Obama who is dark skin. I don’t know but somehow black women as a whole must find a way to protest this injustice in movies, and in hip hop without us being labeled as jealous. Posted by Jeannestar101 01/18/09 1:03 PM

    A Nigerian’s campaign against skin bleaching
    updated: Friday 13-06-2008

    (L-R) Miss Tinuola Oginni, addressing
    blacks resident in the United Kingdon
    during one of her numerous campaigns
    against skin bleaching.Assistant Editor, Jackson Udom, just back from London, writes on what Miss Tinuola Oginni, a London-based make-up artiste, is doing on the streets of London, with her solo crusade against bleaching by blacks resident in London and her plans to take the battle to her roots.

    The bleaching culture crept into the consciousness of Nigerians several years ago, with little or nothing done to check its spread, which, surprisingly, cuts across virtually all sexes, class and groups.

    Despite its grevious health consequences, Nigerians, particularly, the women and some men have turned deaf ear to the health implications of bleaching. But one Nigerian has decided to take the bull by the horn, and that person is London-based Miss Tinuola Oginni.

    Nigerian Tribune encountered this amazon on the streets of London on three different occasions preaching against bleaching, and this caught the attention of this reporter, which led to the attempt at unravelling the reasons behind such a public crusade by a Nigerian against bleaching in a foreign land largely peopled by whites.

    According to those who spoke with Nigerian Tribune on what they described as “the yeoman war against bleaching” by the London-trained make-up artist, “the crusade against bleaching has taken Tinu to virtually all the nooks and crannies of the United Kingdom. It is aimed at discouraging or completely eradicating the spirit of bleaching among Africans. She is more concerned about the health implications associated with bleaching and that is why she goes around the UK to let the people believe in the colour of their skin”.

    Nigerian Tribune also gathered that she has also taken her crusade against bleaching to churches particularly those with predominantly African. It was further learnt that the crusade has, on a daily basis, been receiving the support of religious organisations.

    In a chat with Nigerian Tribune at one of the venues of her anti-bleaching crusade, the make-up artiste said she was moved to preach against bleaching because of what she witnessed when her very close friend was to undergo an operation in the hospital.

    “I am out on the streets against bleaching because of the experience I had when my very close friend was admitted for operation in an hospital. She did not survive the operation because she had been bleaching for over 15 years. According to the GP’s report after the operation, which was very successful, they found it difficult closing her up after the operation because her outerskin layer hadbeen destroyed due to long years of bleaching.

    Because of that she died. It was a painful loss. In fact, I am yet to overcome that loss. That is just one out of very many tragedies occasioned by attempts by Africans to want to look like Europeans. They forget that God gave them that skin colour because of the weather and made the Europeans white because of their weather.”

    She further said “black Africans still see bleaching as the in thing in town. I am yet to see any white man who wants to change his skin to black and that is why I have taken it upon myself to alert blacks on the dangers inherent in bleaching.”

    On why she decided to carry out the campaign in London and not in Africa, the Osun State-born artiste said, “the war has to start from here because African’s resident here are largely influenced by what they see. They see the whites and they want to look like them in colour, forgetting about the health hazards associated with such things”

    She however, assured that plans were underway to take the crusade against bleaching to Africa, saying, “I have Africa, the continent of the blacks, in mind. In the next couple of weeks I will move my campaign there because that is where we have the largest population of blacks, but as they say, charity begins at home. Nigeria, my country, will be my first port of call,”

    According to Miss Oginni, “we will need the support of government, organisations, highly placed individuals for the success of the crusade and it is my prayer that at the end of the campaign against this social abnormality the blacks will come to the understanding of the dangers inherent in bleaching. There is dignity in the black colour because it is a special gift from God and any attempt to want to tamper with it is an indirect way of being ungrateful to God.”

    A good reply:

    Akli,

    This article is god sent. I dont know if you know that I am working as a licensed esthethician in Washington , DC and I have so many
    African clients that have permenately damaged their skin with bleach.

    A little sun screen every day will take care of uneven skin tones and prevent cancer causing cells from starting. Our Mothers used to say stay out of the sun. This advice is so timely as the sun is our worst enemy for different reasons now. The mantra should be use sun screen not bleach.

    Peace and love

    Hi, I’m 15 & I have lately been wanting my mom to buy a bleaching cream for me, but she said no, because she said that every bleaching cream contains hydroquinone (even the most natural bleaching creams). She said as an example: how we need oxygen to breath, oxygen is the main thing that we need to breath & nothing else. Same for bleaching creams: hydroquinone is the main thing & only thing used to lighten skin (even for the most natural bleaching creams), do that’s why she said no to me. But it made me mad, because I have uneven skin tone on my face, neck, elbos & knees, but my mom said that nature will even out your tone later on in life, but for me nature really isn’t doing anything to help my skin tone even out & she also said that I’m too young to be thinking about using bleaching creams & that I should love my skin. I need help is there any other way a young girl like me can even out my skin tone without all of the bad chemicals & am I will nature really even out my tone when I’m older? I just wanted to say that I really appreciate this website that I have discovered today & that it’s helping me love my black skin alot more!!! :-) Because it’s really hard when everywhere you look there is a really skinny model who is light skinned & they just make you sometimes think that it’s better being lighter, because they are all over the t.v, magazines, & in movies. It’s just hard seeing this everywhere , especially in highschool for me.

      Netochi, first you must thank God for such a good mother! She will not let you do something dangerous that will affect the rest of your life dangerously! Even your children can be deformed by bleaching! Now e-mail my cousin quick and she will tell you natural ways to handle this uneven skin. But also pray everyday to God to heal your skin for God made you perfect and God can heal this!

      MONIQUE, you need to move closer to God -start going to a church you like and pray and ask God to release you from these feelings of self-destruction.
      2. you could try a Christian Science Practitioner-look in the yellow pages under CHRISTIAN SCIENCE PRACTITIONERS AND pick one and call and tell her/him how you feel,but remember they get paid after successful treatment like doctors do. Ask for the charges.
      3. You can e-mail my relative who is a specialist in skin diseases:
      Latifa Johnson
      umosman@yahoo.com

      and tell her your feelings and she will advise you and encourage you to kick the addiction of bleaching.
      Add all these with prayers to God everyday asking Him for help! You will come thru this well and happy like God made you to be-and proud of the shade/color God made you! YOU ARE HIS PERFECT CREATION IN EVERYWAY! JUST KNOW AND PRAY THAT AND YOU WILL BE!

    BLACK-SKINNED WOMEN: QUEEN MOTHERS OF THE BLACK RACE AND ALL BEAUTY!
    By Yeye Akilimali Funua Olade

    Why do I sing Praises of your Beautiful, Black, ebony,velvet skin,”Blacker than the sky at midnight”{1},your full mushroomed mouth, your beautiful broad nose, your generous “Congo hips” {2}and full-flowered backside? Because for too long many of the Black Race have abused, dishonored you, degraded and denied you your crown, Queen of Queens,Queen Mother of the Black Race, Black Beauty Supreme! From you all the beauty of the Black Race springs forth.In fact all the world’s beauty springs from you,Mother of all beauty of all the races of the world! Your licorice,dark Black chocolate,beauty, is Blackness concentrated in your beautiful “Black-blueberry”{3} face!

    First in the order of creation is always given respect by Afrikan tradition. The 1st wife, the 1st elder, the 1st kingdom, the 1st original inhabitants, of the earth-all are considered with honor. So it should be with Black Beauty-our darkest -skinned Sisters are the 1st Mothers of the Universe-Black as a color came before all the many tones of brown,red,yellow and white. But for too long our Dark-skinned Queens have not been given the respect and place of honor they deserve. IN FACT THE WHITE BOY HAS INTIATED the cycle of reversing the true order of things by turning upside down the pyramid of Beauty, and placing white-light on top and relegating the most beautiful Black-skinned Beauties to rock bottom!

    So Black people have been taught well how to deny our most

    beautiful one her crown, taught how to reject our Blackest, most Afrikan features, full lips and nose and mouth and woollest hair, for the weaker characteristics of the white race. Shame on Black people! When will we wake up to this Black Beauty concentrated, from whence all our lesser beauty comes. When will we give the crown of crowns,the throne of thrones, to the Blackest Queen of Queens?

    Most of us who suffer from”mulatto-mentality” and “yellow fever”, as Fela, our great Nigerian Musician calls it, will go on and on about what about us lighter queens-aren’t we/they beautiful too, yet you/we should be aware that such queens have gotten all the play in the past and that even in Black Egypt one of the reasons for its downfall was the allowing the lighter ones of the race, to place themselves above the rest of us in the name of lightness and pride of light-closer/to/whiteness. So if we’re yellow,to light brown/red, then we should give respect where respect is due and not live off of the artificial white thrill of having “white features” as if it is an advantage. Where would you be without your BLACKEST great Grandmother? We should honor the Blackest part of ourselves, thus giving us true pride of Blackness, not verbal signifyin’ but real testifyin’ that BLACK is beautiful! If the Blackest, most Afrikan-featured Sister isn’t respected as the Supreme Beauty of the Race,the Black woman’s beauty is not really respected at all for what it really is(only in terms of how closer to white we look). We all reflect the strengths of this concentrated beauty in ourselves, all the manifestations of how Blackness can present itself are seen in our faces. Down to the milk-lightest of us, our Blackness is what dominates us whether physically or mentally. But the Mother is greater than the child and so the Blackest is greater than all the other tones of the Black Race. If we don’t respect our Blackest Queen, we don’t respect our True Black selves. We must have a Black value for BLACKNESS in features and skin tone. We must have a Black Standard of Beauty based on the Black-skinned woman. ALL PRAISES DUE TO OUR BLACK-SKINNED QUEEN-MOTHERS!

    Quincy Jones: Michael Jackson Bleached Skin Because He ‘Didn’t Want To Be Black’
    The producer speaks out about his friend’s obsession with his appearance…
    Friday 03rd Jul 2009

    Thriller producer Quincy Jones says that his pal Michael Jackson bleached his skin because he “didn’t want to be black”.

    The singer always claimed that his increasingly pale appearance was the result of Vitiligo, a chronic condition that causes patches of skin to lose pigment.

    However, Quincy – who also worked with Michael on Off The Wall and Bad – dismisses this explanation as “bulls**t”.

    He says in a candid new interview: “I don’t believe in any of that bulls**t, no. No. Never.

    “I’ve been around junkies and stuff all my life. I’ve heard every excuse. It’s like smokers – ‘I only smoke when I drink’ and all that stuff. But it’s bulls**t.

    “You’re justifying something that’s destructive to your existence. But when somebody’s hell-bent on it, you can’t stop ‘em.

    “What his face turned into is ridiculous. Chemical peels and all of it. And I don’t understand it. But he obviously didn’t want to be black. You see his kids?”

    Quincy suggests Michael was a hypochondriac, but is unable to explain why his friend had such a problem with the way he looked.

    “He’d come up with, ‘Man, I promise you I have this disease,’ and so forth, and ‘I have a blister on my lungs,’ and all that kind of bulls**t,” he tells Details.

    “It’s hard, because Michael’s a Virgo, man – he’s very set in his ways. You can’t talk him out of it.

    “I’m just a musician and a record producer. I’m not a psychiatrist. I don’t understand all that stuff. We all got problems.”

    Black to white: Michael’s changing appearance

    After learning of his friend’s death, Quincy praised Michael for his “talent, grace, professionalism and dedication” in an emotional tribute.

    Michael Joseph Jackson was born in Gary, Indiana on August 29, 1958. He was the seventh child of nine children to Joseph and Katherine Jackson and was born into a typical working class family. The city of Gary is 25 miles from downtown Chicago and is famous for its massive steel industry. It took its name from the chairman of U.S. Steel, Elbert H Gary, and is nicknamed ‘City of Century’ – we’re hoping for ironic reasons. (Image: WENN.com)

      A reply from my bleaching emails:

      Akli,

      This article is god sent. I dont know if you know that I am working as a licensed esthethician in Washington , DC and I have so many
      African clients that have permenately damaged their skin with bleach.

      A little sun screen every day will take care of uneven skin tones and prevent cancer causing cells from starting. Our Mothers used to say stay out of the sun. This advice is so timely as the sun is our worst enemy for different reasons now. The mantra should be use sun screen not bleach.

    im brown skinned and living in a very white place lol. I have no problem with my skin color but i do have a problem with my visable hair follicals. It look like i have a bunch of dots on my legs. My arms are less noticable. I’ve just started using porcelana that you can buy in walgreens to put on my thighs etc because of stretch marks and decided to see if it works for my visable hair follicals. I look up the reviews for this procuct and it had no bad ones. What stikes me as odd is it contains hydroquinone and they sell it in walgreens. I’m not putting it on my face just my legs and thighs where the stretch marks are present. Im not planing on using is past 3months but could anyone tell me if this product going to give me skin cancer or something before i began day2 of it. I wish there was a product that just even the skin tone…..im not looking to be lighter just one complexion.

  76. June Says:

    I forgot to mention that i was told by a dermatologist that it only becomes a problem if your using it for 20yrs. She told me everything could be deadly if used for a long time like tylenol and even pepto. She said most people have little to no sideeffects when using over the counter whitners because they only contain 2%. I did not ask about the porcelana because doctors are quick to want to hand you a 250 dollar prescription for whitners/stretch mark creams.

    After reading several articals of famous personalitys of Afro-American decent who are ashamed of their beautiful black skin.,that they are bleaching themselves to look white.Racisum steams from white people wanting to have skin of color. They have gone to the extreem of burming themselves in the sun to create some color of their skin. Causing skin cancer and a number of heath problems just to risk having some color to their skin. To tanning booths which release unnatural rays to keep the apperance of color. What a shame that so many people are not satasified with the way GOD created them that they will go to any length to achieve results that we’ve been naturally given as a Race of color. Wake up everybody no more slepping in bed ,no more backward thinking ,time for thing ahead. Say it loud I’m Black and I’m PROUD!!!! AMEN!! So at the end of the day you are still Stuck with YOU!!!! YA HEARD!!!

    want what we were born with. Now we have stooped to there leval to reverce what GOD gave us naturally.Not realizing the price that you will pay later on in you healt ad wellbeing in this life. Who are you following? GOD or Man???

Then it got soo much he started using white makeup. He Didn’t want to but it was what was best for him you cant go out in public looking like a cow, like wtf?. He never bleached his skin its makeup you see on his face. please get your facts straight. and do some research. Its states all this in his Book moonwalk and his makeup artist Karen Faye even did an interview about all this. He never wanted to look like a monster so why make him sound like one?. He was a nice lovely person he didn’t publically judge anyone so why judge him?. Just leave him Alone

    just a moment ago I have bleached my face. I wanted to achieve a healthy glow for a special occasion tonight . how ever I am a 19 years old girl from India and I had a light brown skin tone and I had no problem with it. but my friends suggested me bleaching for an instant glow. I mixed the activator properly, did the patch test and followed all the precautions mentioned and kept it for exactly ten minutes . but after I washed my face my it is all black. darker than my actual skin tone and patchy.I was so surprised, never imagined it could happen. and now my face is looking worst than ever. I am so depressed now. how ever I searched in net and came to know thousands of girl suffers from this. now I have nothing to do as it is only going to heel with time and it will take may be months( I am also going to join college very soon with my ghostly face) and I can not use make-up or even soap and can only use calamine lotion for months. I am never going to use bleach in life again.

        I AM A BLACK CHRISTIAN SCIENTIST AND HAVE SINCE 11 YEARS OLD USED PRAYER FOR HEALING EVERYTHING INCLUDING DEATH CALLING ME! SO THE BEST SOLUTION AND YOU NEED NOT CHANGE YOUR RELIGION OR CHURCH IS TO CALL A CHRISTIAN SCIENCE PRACTITIONERS LISTED IN THE PHONE BOOK UNDER THOSE WORDS. ASK HER TO GIVE YOU THE NUMBER OF A BLACK PRACTITIONER AND TELL HER YOUR PROBLEM- GOD WILL HEAL IT!
