Nigerians are criticizing an American model and entrepreneur, Angela Renée White, professionally known as Blac Chyna, for her intentions to come to Nigeria to sell a skin-lightening cream.

The American model partnered with Cameroonian entrepreneur, Dencia to create a $250 skin-brightening lotion.

According to the brand’s website, the Whitenicious x Black Chyna Diamond Illuminating & Lightening Cream “gives a brightening glow for younger-looking skin and brightens and lightens without bleaching skin out, among other things.

Yesterday, Blac Chyna announced on her Instagram page that she would be launching the product with an upcoming appearance in Nigeria but Nigerians are having none of it.

Reactions to her announcement

In a time where black women are beginning to appreciate their skin colour, Blac Chyna’s product seem like a slap on their faces. Sadly, in Nigeria, where 77 per cent of its citizens use skin lightening products on a regular basis, skin-lightening creams are not banned.

Nigerians on their social media platforms are calling out Blac Chyna over her intentions while urging women to embrace their skin colour.

Meanwhile, some people believe that Blac Chyna shouldn’t be criticized as Nigerians have been bleaching before the American model made her intentions known.

For some people, there is demand for the cream.

Effects of skin-lightening

According to the World Health Organisation, the main adverse effect of the inorganic mercury contained in skin lightening soaps and creams is kidney damage. Mercury in skin lightening products may also cause skin rashes, skin discoloration and scarring, as well as a reduction in the skin’s resistance to bacterial and fungal infections. Other effects include anxiety, depression or psychosis and peripheral neuropathy.
