The French cosmetic giant L’Oréal announced they will be removing words like “whitening” and “lightening” from all their skin care products. The move comes on the heels of a backlash that a number of beauty brands received for their skin lightening products amidst ongoing protests for racial equality. Another global cosmetic giant, Uniliver, has already announced similar measures, including for its Indian subsidiary, which will now rename its best-selling skin lightening cream to Fair & Lovely. Unilever’s decision comes after Johnson & Johnson announced last week that its brands Neutrogena and Clean & Clear would discontinue skin-whitening creams favored in Asia and the Middle East.
