Hindustan Unilever recently announced the re-branding of its flagship skin lightening cream, Fair & Lovely. The company announced that they will stop using the word ‘Fair’ in the brand name ‘Fair & Lovely’ and it will be called ‘Glow & Lovely’ moving forward.
The re-branding is said to be done in the wake of criticism the company received for its product promoting colorism (discrimination done on the basis of skin color, also known as shadeism).
"Over the next few months, Glow & Lovely will be on the shelves and future innovations will deliver on this new proposition," the company said in their official statement.
The widely selling cream is also sold in Bangladesh, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and other parts of Asia, and interestingly, also exported to other parts of the world, such as the West, where it is sold in Asian supermarkets.
But since the announcement was made public, the internet can't stop buzzing with hilarious memes on the same and we thought we'd share some of the most epic ones with our readers.
