Skin bleaching is dangerous
updated: Friday 04-07-2008

She is Tinu Oginni, a beauty and make-up expert based in the United Kingdom, with a mission to create more awareness about the long term effect of using bleaching products to change skin tone by people of all ages and background. She also wants to create more awareness on why we are dark in colour and enable us build our confidence in being black, enrich our lives and reveal our hidden beauty so that we live in good state of health.

According to her, in this modern appearance- conscious society in which we live, there is a myth that lighter, pale complexion portrays beauty, riches, success, and people are often commended on the fairness of their skin. “This misguided belief has resulted in making a lot of people bow to this social pressure, which is enormous and cuts across all the strata of our society.”

“It is imperative, therefore, on our part that we put a halt to this. Banning of products containing hydroquinone and mercury will not stop the products from entering Nigeria, but the only way to make a positive impact on preventing this anormaly from spreading is to create more awareness about the long term effects of using skin bleaching products on our skin,” said Ogini.

She stated that in order to combat this problem, confidence teaching must start in the homes and then in the schools to enable children value themselves, i.e, their colour, religion, culture, family, country.” “Beauty is more than skin deep. The radiance that shines through an individual and her comportments are all attributes that attest not only to her beauty but also her confidence.

To change your skin colour is to betray your maker and your faith, for in the realm of religion there must be no room for vanity, “ she said. Bleaching, according to her, is most certainly not pleasing in the eyes of the Lord. “In order to change the psyche of our people, I am organizing a national crusade across the six geo-political zones of Nigeria in which various lectures intended to expose the negative underpinnings of bleaching will be delivered by scholars and researchers such as dermatologists, psychologists, beauticians and religious leaders among others.”

Areas of concern will include: Why we have our skin colour; medical, social, spiritual and economic implications of bleaching our skin. The campaign against this anomally aims to educate through the aggressive use of the mass media such as, television, radio jingles, newspapers, magazines, flyers, posters, bill board, public campaign, seminars and workshop.

What is bleaching?
Bleaching is using products that contain hydroquinone and mercury to change our colour. There is also a new product in market containing kajoic acid. All these products work by inhibiting the production of melanin. Hydroquinone is a severely toxic and very powerful chemical used in photo processing, the manufacture of rubber and is an active agent in hair dye. Mercury in the form of Mercury Chloride and Ammoniated Mercury is carcinogenic (Cancer-causing agent). They appear on the list of toxic substances that can only be purchased via pharmacies with prescribed labels of toxicity.

What are the long term effects of using bleaching products on our skin?
Bleaching leads to increase thinning of the skin and stretch marks.
Bleaching is associated to being a carcinogen. (Cancer- causing agent).
Bleaching pills are toxic and can cause damage to internal organs such as kidney and liver.
Bleaching leaves odour which is anything from stale, mousy, to fishy
Skin bleaching can cause rough, blotchy skin, leaving it with a spotty cavier appearance.

Why do people use skin bleaching products?
1. Uneven complexion tone (skin with blemishes).
2. Consumers being lured by marketing ploy.
3. Lack of basic information and education on why we are dark in colour (ignorance).
4. Social pressure (some consider bleaching as fashionable).
There is usually an underlying cause for uneven complexion tone. They include: Eczema, acne, poor nutrition. Visit a dermatologist, do not apply unprescribed cream on your skin! Manufacturers of skin bleaching products use marketing ploy to lure customers, i.e putting toning and lightening in the same sentence.

Skin lightening and toning are two different things Lightening is bleaching. Toning is freshenening up your skin. Manufacturers of skin bleaching products may not be fully versed with the side effect of their products. Some products present misleading labels or are economical with the truth (i.e. 2% hydroquinone while it contains 6% or even more). Manufacturers of skin bleaching products coming into Nigeria must label their products to include the proper warning label i.e (bleaching may harm your skin)

A lot of people lack basic information and education on why our skin is dark in colour.In Nigeria shinning of the sun is intense. God created us with the right skin type to survive the harshness. Our body produces melanin which protects our skin from the harmful (ultra violet ray of the sun). Without melanin production, we would need to cover our skin with sun screen; without melanin production, our skin will be vulnerable and risk a greater chance of developing cancer. The more melanin we produce the darker we are. We are beautiful creatures that God made and gave us different skin tone. All colours are beautiful but there are ways we can care for our skin by maintaining or improving its look and texture. Fortunately, a woman skin does not have to be truly flawless to look like it is, the steps to create a perfect finish starts with a great skin care programme, i.e,

Cleanse your skin to remove make-up and impurities.

Exfoliate your skin to remove dead surface cells.

Freshen your skin to tone and refine pores.

Moisturize your skin for soft, smooth skin.

Protect your skin from environmental damage using foundation while colour cosmetics will produce the fabulous finish when required.

    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.

  4. A.S Says:

    I’m african american (dark-skinned) and I’m 14 years old. Honestly, I’ve whent on the internet and looked for skin lightening creams to lighten my skin to at least brown-skinned!!! Being a dark african-american is undescribable…In our black community–blacks tease me about being dark?!? I don’t get it, then its like you have liteskinned boys who are only attracted to light girls. Some I will get the attention of a light-skinned guy, brown too! But it’s like they’d rather have some one who yellow than dark!!! I know i’m not ugly…but i’m dark–and i think thats probably why I get 5 out of ten attractions from brown and light boys! when i was younger i hated my skin and wished i was lighter!! but now its like i’m know i’m pretty and dark but i sometimes question myself if i should use the lightening cream!

    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.”

      I am one of if not the greatest fan of the Michael Jackson. But truth be told. O yes! he did bleach his skin and what is most glarring for all to see is that he was by far a better looking man when he was black.

      • Yeye Akilimali Funua Olade Says:

        Stephany Rewire, since you are a Sister I WILL TAKE TIME TO REPLY TO THAT! MICHAEL JACKSON WAS BLACK AND BEAUTIFUL BEFORE HE BLEACHED BUT UNFORTUNATELY HIS PROBLEM STARTED FROM HOME! HIS FATHER USE TO TAUNT HIM HOW UGLY HE WAS,ESPECIALLY HIS BLACK BROAD NOSE! THIS STARTED THE VICIOUS CYCLE OF SELF-HATRED. IN YOUR BLACK OF HEARTS WE ALL KNOW THAT OUR BEAUTIFUL FULL FEATURES AND DARK,SILKY SKIN ARE GIFTS FROM GOD AND MAKE US ACTUALLY THE BEST LOOKING RACE ON THE PLANET. BUT THEN WHITE BRAINWASHING/MENTAL SLAVERY CAME IN AND SOME OF US CAN ACTUALLY THINK THAT PALE/NO NOSE/NO HIPS/NO LIPS/NO SHAPE/NO ASS/NO COLOR IS BEAUTIFUL BECAUSE WHITE RACISM TAUGHT US SO! MICHAEL JACKSON MADE HIMSELF INTO A MONSTER AS FAR AS BLACK PEOPLE WHO LOVE THEMSELVES GO. LEARN TO THINK OF YOUR BLACKNESS AS BEAUTIFUL CAUSE GOD MADE IT PERFECT THAT WAY! LOVE YOUR BLACK SELF AND BLACK FEATURES AND TEACH YOUR BLACK TO LOVE AND CHERISH THEIR SPECIAL GIFT FROM GOD!

  12. Yeye Akilimali Funua Olade Says:

    Karvas and Peace, Michael Jackson was bleaching! On Cnn last nite 28 June a skin doctor said that his excessive bleaching led to a skin disease and The Guardian(London) had already reported that he had finally developed skin cancer! A Black person cannot get skin cancer unless he bleaches cause we have a natural protection against the sun,unlike whites! Just learn this lesson-LOVE YOUR BLACK SELF-GOD KNEW WHAT BEAUTIFUL CREATION HE MADE WHEN HE MADE BLACK SKIN! DON’T BLEACH YOUR BEAUTIFUL BLACK SKIN AWAY! BLEACH AND DIE!
    HERE’S THE SOURCE OF THAT LONDON INFO:

    JUST SAW IN THE GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER(LONDON),SAT. MAY 23,2009,PAGE 44 IN “THIS WEEK” COLUMN BY LUCY MANGAN COMMENTING ON MICHAEL JACKSON’S UPCOMING TOUR OF UK-
    “AND THERE HAVE ALSO BEEN RUMOURS THAT MICHAEL JACKSON HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH SKIN CANCER” !

    THAT’S WHAT BLEACHING LEADS TO-SKIN CANCER BECAUSE THOSE CHEMICALS DESTROY YOUR TOP SKIN AND LEAVE YOU UNPROTECTED AGAINST DISEASE ETC.

    • Yeye Akilimali Funua Olade Says:

      MICHAEL JACKSON BLEACHED AND DEVELOPED SKIN DISEASE AND BEFORE HE DIED HAD DEVELOPED SKIN CANCER AND SKIN CANCER IS WHAT BLEACHING LEADS TO EVENTUALLY-THAT IS THE BLACK TRUTH! TAKE THE TRUTH OR LEAVE IT! HERE AT BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL! WE TEACH THE LOVE OF BLACKNESS! WE CAN NEVER DEFEND BLACK SELF HATRED IN ANY FORM! CORRECT YOURSELF IF YOU HATE YOUR BLACK SELF- GO TO GOD AND LET GOD SHOW YOU THAT HE HAS CREATED YOU THE BEAUTIFUL CREATION THAT YOU ARE! DON’T COVERT ANOTHER MAN’S SKIN COLOR-LOVE THE SKIN YOU ARE IN! LESSONS FOR BLACK PEOPLE WE WILL CONTINUE TO PREACH! WAKE UP SKIN BLEACHERS-BLEACH AND DIE!

  17. Stephany Rewire Says:

    Hi Tinu,
    I am really grateful to have come across this article, because i have been on a smaller scale campaigning against bleaching. I guess i am fortunate to have come from two educated and enlightened parents. My mum thought us about the ills of bleaching right from when we were really young because her older sister was a victim and is still living with the results of her own vice.
    I grew up on a university campus and never came face to face with self loathing until i moved to the united kingdom. I have now seen it all, friends who bleach their children because they believe that is the summation of beauty.
    A friend once asked me “ah! your daughter is so beautiful, how do you manage?” Now, this was my first contact with self loathers and i did not understand the question till much later. I simply replied, she comes from good stock. She went on to say.” You are dark, how come? I didnt take offence as i didnt really understand her question, but as i got to know her better, i understood what she meant by how come?
    Her inquest became even clearer when we both had babies about four months apart. She asked me if i had not noticed that her baby was lighter, i replied oh is he? My aunty said my first son was lighter each time she saw him, it happens that way sometimes i said. She replied “i used a little something to top up a bit”. I screamed and before i knew it gave her a thirty minute lecture on the ills of bleaching.
    Anyway this fell to deaf ears as she is still lightening the skins of her three lovely black kids. Still on the same friend, I was going through her pictures and saw this beautiful ebony skinned girl and said “she gorgeous?, she has the most beautiful complexion i have ever seen,my friend now went she has the same colour like you now?” I went home a different person.
    I grew up knowing that bleaching was bad and when defining beauty colour never was a criteria,(well except our maids hence i associated it with ignorance) my mum is ebony but even my dads ex wife that i met in London a few years back told me how beautiful my mum is.
    I am also dark skinned and have always been the centre of attention. All this was alien to me and i felt an obligation towards these people, i had to let them know what they were doing to themselves.
    I later found that if i wantedd to carry this cross, i had my work cut out for myself as contrary to what i believed, it was not only the uneducated and unenlightened that bleached their skin, i worked with a solicitor whose every word was i used to be fair ask anyone who knew me before. She eventually took matters into her own hands. Your guess as to how this ended with her is as good as mine. She is now fairer and happier.
    I can only give you thumbs up for you have taken this to a whole new level. I am happy to do what i can to promote this movement. Keep up the good works.

    I’m dark and beautiful I would never use skin bleaching cream and can’t believe. society has turned people against dark skin. i recently got judged for sun bathing to even out my skin a man shocked why i would want to make myself darker. too many jealous people in this world confidence is the key. Love the skin your in
