Dear Advertisers, “Don’t Put Limits on Beauty!”

    BY: AIMAN RAZA

White is beautiful so does Black is. Don’t put limits on beauty. Beauty comes in every color, every shape and in every aspects.  The famous quote “beauty lies in the eyes of beholder” is very much true.

The multi-billion dollar whitening cream industry has created the hype that if we not use whitening cream, our life become miserable or may be it completely ended. We cannot get a good job, or even a nice husband. That’s what they project in Fair and Lovely ads. They hijacked the minds of young teenage girls, who are in dreaming to become a doctor, engineer, lawyer or teacher. They show that we only need a fairness cream in our life not a good education. Nothing good just fair and lovely then our dreams will be achieved and nothing else can be ever beneficial for us to achieve the goal of our life. What exactly they portray our dream is? Precisely, it is “husband” and a “job”. Seriously??!!! Is this what we only need in life?

For more than couple of decades, companies are marketing their whitening cream by fueling intolerance and causing serious social harm in South Asia, especially Pakistan, Bangladesh and India. They are selling their idea of “white is beautiful” to earn billion dollars. The only thing which makes number of people is their customers are buying their idea by spending a lot of money on such products. Many global corporations are involved in this market, such as Unilever, which ranges from “Fair & Lovely”, Pond’s “White Beauty”, Emami “Fair and Handsome”, Dove whitening to Vaseline.

In India, majority of population is darker skin tone. I still did not get the idea of why Fairness cream companies trying to prove that if Indian female use whitening cream their destination will change. It’s not only in India the color of skin discussed, it’s an issue in the world. In Pakistan where majority of population has white complexion, fairness creams, on the other hand, are still trying to sell the products of fairness to prove that you still need more whiteness.

Okay! If there is a need in the market for these products go for it. But, don’t fulfil it on the expense of someone’s self-respect. No one gives you the right to humiliate a person in your ads, create discrimination in the society, bring intolerance among people and insecurity among dark color girls (they are less compatible, ugly, or unsuccessful because of their skin tone). In advertisement, there are moral ethics, and values which an advertiser has to follow but unfortunately no one follow the rules or even care about ethics. In fact, you cannot target, degrade someone to make you good.

Being a marketer, I can tell you, people can change the perception of beauty standards. So, we girls have a right to reject beauty standards of these corporations and force them to change their marketing strategies of selling their product on the name of de-valuing the customer or making unethical and cruel advertisements. Simply, by raising your voice against such companies and standing against such promotions/advertisements. It’s even happened in India where “Woman of Wealth”, an Indian NGO, stand against the odds. Kangana Ranaut spoke about it and rejected to endorsing such products. Now, it gives the corporations/companies to think different. Even Dove Company started a campaign and showed that the women are beautiful in whatever skin tone they are.

Dear Whitening Cream Industry please come with new ideas for advertising, sell your product on something different. Don’t try to sell the product by humiliating others. Show the world how creative you are. We all girls are sick of your old, bullshit kind of finding husband examples or getting a dream job. We are capable of achieving our life goals without whitening creams. We as black, brown, white equally succeeding in the career, scoring high in CSS Exams. Surprisingly, no whitening cream is sponsored us. Too bad for you, isn’t it? By the way, dear marketers, the society is more aware now, beauty standards had changed. Whitening cream industry, please you also need to be changed. Sincerely!

    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    post title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Dear Advertisers, “Don’t Put Limits on Beauty!”
    – The Educationist is a little vanilla. You should glance at
    Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create article headlines to get people
    interested. You might add a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about what you’ve written. Just
    my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
