Nigerian woman are the highest consumers of skin-whitening creams in Africa, according to CNN report. The data drawn by CNN ranked Nigeria as the top consumer of the creams. The data explained that 75 per cent of women in Nigeria patronise whitening products. This is followed closely by Senegal at 60 per cent, Mali at 50 per cent and Ghana at 30 per cent. Whitening creams are cosmetic products that reduce the melanin or pigment in the skin to make it appear lighter.
 
The skin-whitening industry predominantly caters to women worldwide and people of colour in every region. These creams contain ingredients that work to decrease body’s production of melanin. Melanin is responsible for the pigment in the skin made by cells called melanocytes. But many of these creams have been found to have dangerous side effects and are unapproved for use.

Is this the new problem with Nigeria? I am of the opinion there are more things to worry about in Nigeria polity than bleaching cream.
Just as we couldn't tell anyone how to spend his or her wealth then why are we concerned about what a person does to her body.
White, Indians etc use bleaching creams.

I'm sorry every adults has control over what he is she does to his or her body. Some put tattoos and even pierce any part of their bodies.
It's her problem if her knuckles get darker. As long as she doesn't mind appearing like that. Very soon people would be deciding what toothpaste to use or what cereals to eat in the morning in Nigeria.
Misplaced priority.
