Hindustan Unilever has finally decided to drop the words "fairness", "whitening" and "lightening" from its products. But will this end India's obsession with fairness creams? 👀

    If black is beautiful, fair is lovely too. I thank god everyday for giving me a rose pink skin tone. 🙏

    It took Chandana Hiran a 23 yo non-celebrity, normal girl to put an end to the age old grandma’s fair skin bs narrative 😂 Something that even celebrities didn’t do. Kudos to Chandana. https://youtu.be/STCbofD9xbI

    Guys, a fair obsessed uncle in comments below couldn’t accept all colors are beautiful & created 25 fake female profiles to support his comment - liking & replying to his own comments from fake female profiles, praising himself etc. Look at the profiles of ppl liking & commenting on his fairness comment 😂 All these female profiles he created is of ditto same format (profile picture from google of solo females, No cover photo & locked profile). I guess it’s hard to find pics from google with matching cover & profile faces 😂 I’ll let you all figure out who that is. Keep scrolling down to last ‘#’ comment from singh..😂

    Really? Thought traditional, old generation Indian aunties & uncles obsess white. Here, we try tanning products to look brown like Kim Kardashian - West loves brown skin as it’s hot & pretty, we would do anything for it. Humans always want something they don’t have. If fat, they want thin. If thin, they want fat. If tall, they want short. If short, they want tall. Pretty soon we all going to look same & be robots/plastics. Human nature in a funny world lol 😂 😂 😂

    INDIAN women are so obsessed with fair skin that they will blindly believe any thing which assures them fair skin. Deep inside we ll know no product worth 50 or 100ruppes will make u fair. Pathetic part is these products are endorsed by so called " Celebrities" who themselves never use these shitty products.

    As a collective, Indians are amongst the explicitly racist communities - colour, caste, religion etc. Commercial products cater to popular demand - optics on names do not change anything - racism will continue as it is ingrained in the community - it may change over a few generations with literacy, awareness, evolution etc. - at least it will not be explicit as it is now to start with.

    These type of cream sell because there is a demand for such products.. People always want to be a shade or two lighter than they already are.. 🤷‍♀️

    They dropped the fair or fairness word but came up with another word 'glow'. Now this is going to trigger a new race. Mann....you are replacing racism with racism...🤣🤣
