#BREAKING #IvoryCoast BANS Skin lightening creams #HNNBeauty



BBC reports that #‎IvoryCoast‬ has banned skin lightening creams because of health concerns.

Creams that de-pigment the skin have been popular for years among African women - and some men - who believe they make them more beautiful.

But medical experts say they may cause cancer and other diseases. Caro White is the best selling one in Nigeria and is made in Ivory coast but Nigerians also use the steroid creams and ointments whose side effects are lightening the pigment.

That will definitely cause cancer.  I use skin whitening soaps like Maxipeel with papaya and seaweed, a better alternative to creams.
