The Learn and Teach challenge


This person has hydroquinone poisoning. This person got hydroquinone poisoning from skin lightening cream. Most skin lightening creams are made with hydroquinone.

Most skin doctors want the Health Department to ban skin lightening creams. (10 out of 11 skin doctors told Learn and Teach they want skin lightening creams banned).

But last month the Health Department said they won’t ban skin lightening creams.

Skin lightening cream is big business. Black people spend over 30 million rands a year on skin lightening creams. Adverts in newspapers and magazines help sell these poisonous creams.

Show your readers that you are on their side. Please stop advertising skin lightening creams.
