Johnson and Johnson To Withdraw Skin Lightening Products From Sale

The American company Johnson and Johnson announced the suspension of sales of products for lightening dark spots on the skin, according to the New York Times.

The manufacturer explained the decision by saying that, as discussions over the past few weeks have shown, the names and descriptions of some products Neutrogena and Clean & Clear represent a light skin tone as more advantageous than natural. It also turned out that some buyers used products to make the skin lighter in General.

It is reported that the products of the Clean & Clear line for skin lightening were not on sale in the United States, but they were available in stores in India and the Middle East.

Against the background of the movement against racism that has engulfed many countries of the world, companies began to change their policies. In particular, earlier it became known that the Mars Corporation, which owns the Uncle Ben's brand, decided to remove the portrait of an African-American from the logo. PepsiCo also plans to change the logo of the Aunt Jemima brand with the image of an African-American woman.
