Skin Bleaching is Addictive!

For Catherine Tetteh the story of skin bleaching is very personal. She is actively educating people and fighting against skin bleaching in Togo and throughout Africa.  People are not aware of the Skin Bleaching industry being more profitable than the Pharmaceutical industry, or illicit drugs,  along with dangerous effects.  Aside from some of the very dangerous and harmful ingredients of bleaching products, it is also a fact that they are highly addictive due to cortisone as a main ingredient of those products.
Catherine talks about various side effects of daily usage of skin bleaching products which vary from skin rashes to cancers, sterility, and diseases induced by deep penetration of toxic and carcinogenic bio-products into the body.
Skin bleaching is widely used around the planet.  The reasons for its use slightly vary in different parts, but have a common denominator – “beauty comes first” says Catherine, but people and the industry are quiet about it.

What Is Skin Bleaching?
Skin bleaching is a cosmetic treatment to reduce the prominence of skin
discolorations and even out the color of the skin. You can buy bleaching creams over the counter and by prescription.
Some people apply skin
lightener to their entire body to change their complexion, but this can be very risky. The active ingredient in some skin lighteners is mercury, so bleaching can lead to mercury poisoning.
Mercury is a
toxic agent that can cause serious psychiatric, neurological, and kidney problems. Pregnant women who use a skin lightener with mercury can pass the mercury to their unborn child.
The use of mercury as an ingredient in skin
lighteners is banned in the U.S. However, some skin lighteners produced outside the U.S. may still contain mercury.

We hosted Nikhil Varagiri, Philippe and Thierry in our studio, and they talk about this performance in the connection to ancient art of Kalaripayattu. As Nikhil, who practices it for a long time, this is the mother to all martial arts on the planet.
” In this show they invoke the spirit of the BHU element (earth). The Kalari warrior carries, in his body, the memory of the earth. Through this process, they are able to reconnect to the pure origin that keeps him in motion with the heartbeat of the earth.”…
