Meanwhile Legit.ng previously reported that an East African country, Rwanda, recently banned bleaching creams from all shops across the country.

While many countries continue to launch campaigns creating awareness about the dangers of bleaching, the Rwandan government has taken the bold step to ban all skin-whitening and bleaching products in the country.

This is coming shortly after the president, Paul Kagame, out-rightly condemned the use of the products in November 2018, urging Rwanda’s ministry of health to take action. In response to a Twitter user who voiced concern over the issue, he was quoted saying: “Quite unhealthy among other things. Includes use of prohibited chemicals," adding that the ministry of health look into it urgently.

A while ago, the country had launched a campaign against the use of bleaching products, citing the health hazards as a major reason. The country's Standards Board warned the public about the use of products that contain hydroquinone, one of the prohibited ingredients in ordinary commercial cosmetics.
