BEWARE! FAIRNESS CREAMS ARE CAUSING CANCER

‘Ab Se Fair n Lovely Nikhaar Nahi Degi’, have you heard this before? Sajal Aly is right, Fair n Lovely will not give you ‘Nikkar’, but will cause cancer, for sure. There are many other advertisements which are teaching the girls of our society that whitening skin is all that they need. For the purpose, famous celebrities are hired and their fans follow what they say in the advertisement.

There is a perception that international brands are best in quality and usually people spend more on international brands but do not trust the local brands. Contradictory to that perception, international brands are also chasing higher revenues. 17 out of those 56 brands are international and we all know that the sales of these international whitening cream brands are far more than of local whitening cream brands.

Why Do These Whitening Creams Cause Cancer?

In addition, there is a skin color complex in our society and the majority wants to have white skin. Despite knowing the climatic conditions of Pakistan, the girls of our society are using whitening creams. Above all, girls use whitening cream more than one time in a day for better results. Therefore, whitening creams have more harmful effects.

Sealing Whitening Cream Companies:

The minister not only exposed the companies but promised to seal these companies after 31 December 2019. The companies are given some time to improve their product according to the standards. We hope minister do not procrastinate the issue longer, as these creams are dangerous for the users.

Our Mushwarah to the Pakistani society is to change these stereotypes because it is negatively affecting our current and coming generations of Pakistan. Everyone is beautiful the way they are and we should appreciate the appearance of each other. Apart from this, these unnecessary advertisements should be banned in Pakistan that is playing with the health of the consumers. Furthermore, these companies should be levied heavy fines.
