What is Fairness Program?
To achieve a more fair complexion, many people undergo a technique known as skin-whitening, in which the production of melanin in the skin is inhibited. Individuals with a darker complexion have a higher melanin content, which in turn influences the skin tone of that individual. Melanocytes are the cells responsible for producing melanin. The amount of melanin in one’s skin is determined by one’s genetic makeup. Sunlight, the severity of skin injury, and chemical exposure all have an effect on melanin formation.
Freckles, age spots, scars, moles, acne, birthmarks, and the desire to have fair skin, especially among persons with a darker skin tone, are common reasons why people turn to skin whitening products.
