Green campaign against money laundering gains momentum – The Sun Nigeria

By Christy Anyanwu

Eand The International Women’s Day 2022, which was celebrated recently, provided a good opportunity to strengthen the campaign against skin bleaching.

Held under the theme Green Beauty Pleasure Party, the evening was used to solicit support from influencers and media professionals on the essence and beauty of using organic beauty brands.

BONA EXPO Exhibition Manager Cynthia Odibeli reaffirmed the need for the campaign when she said, “Bleaching has done a lot of damage to the skin, causing cancer and all kinds of diseases.”

Odibeli further explained, “Nigeria has a higher percentage of people bleaching their skin. We need to create awareness. The global cosmetics industry benefits from our African heritage. People come here and take our natural ingredients and it has helped them become world leaders.

“By going green and eco-friendly, it means you use natural products like Ori (shea butter) and you still look good. If shea butter doesn’t work, you have turmeric, or you can try a tea tree or argan beauty product until you find the right one for you.

“Maybe what we need is, what natural ingredient works best with me? Our weather is very hot, you may have skin discolorations, skin pigmentation, but you’re still better than try to bleach. The result is dangerous.

The first exhibition of organic beauty brands in Africa will take place on March 30 and 31 at the Landmarks Events Centre, Oniru, Victoria Island, Lagos.
