Reality TV star Blac Chyna is facing a social media criticism after announcing plans to launch a skin-lightening cream in Africa.
Blac Chyna has formed a partnership with a high-end skin bleaching company called Whitenicious by Dencia. Nigerian- Cameroonian singer Dencia, who founded the company, Whitenicious, has also been criticized for selling skin bleaching products.
However, Dencia has defended her product line, saying the products only treat dark spots and hyperpigmentation. She added they do not contain bleaching ingredients that could damage the skin, she said in an interview with Ebony magazine in 2014.
Dencia added “Will Whitenicious bleach your skin if you use it on all your skin? Yes, it will. Are we selling Whitenicous for that purpose? No, we’re not.”
Blac Chyna will launch the product in Lagos, Nigeria this weekend.
