HUL to remove ‘fair’ from ‘Fair & Lovely’ face cream

Hindustan Unilever Ltd. will re-brand its fairness cream ‘Fair and Lovely’ as part of a global re-branding practice by its British-Dutch parent company Unilever PLC. The company is very likely to rename it as ‘Glow and Lovely’. The company on Thursday said, “We now announce that we will remove the word ‘fair’ from our brand name Fair & Lovely. The new name is awaiting regulatory approval and packs with the revised name will be available in the market in the next few months. The brand is committed to celebrating all skin tones,” the company said on Thursday.The Hindustan Unilever’s ‘Fair and Lovely’ was launched in 1975 as a facial fairness cream. Actress Richa Chaddha shared a post supporting the brand’s decision on Instagram.

“NOT FAIR BUT LOVELY”, I had gotten this printed on a T shirt back in 2015. Yesterday, the brand @fairandlovely_id and I were finally in agreement! 👏🏽💕❤️Yesterday, they dropped the word FAIR from their product name… Before you attack the brand for only paying ‘lip service’, please remember, it takes many generations for ideas to change. There is demand and hence there is supply…We have been told since we were children, that fairness is the only definition of beauty! It is also another unfortunate byproduct of colonialism and casteism! But it’s 2020, and a lot of BS is getting dismantled ! It took me many years of unlearning to gain confidence and start LOVING my complexion! Der aye durust aye, I say. I welcome this decision by the brand… and it’s not easy… brands have a thousand meetings before they change even the FONT in their logo… I hope slowly and steadily mindsets change… we must continuously and without any influence of the West, define our own idea of beauty. Beauty must be inclusive! Bravo @fairandlovely_id 👏🏽 . . . मुझे लगता है कि भारत की तरह,बहुत से ऐसे देश हैं जहाँ अंग्रेज़ों ने राज किया।अक्सर ऐसे देशों में ग़ुलामी एक मानसिक रूप भी धारण कर लेती है।हमें लगने लगता है की हमारा रंग, हमारी भाषा, हमारा खाना अच्छा नहीं है… और यही अंग्रेज़ हमें लगातार बताते भी थे… ये दुर्भाग्यवश है की हम अपनी ही चीज़ों को हीन, (inferior) समझकर उन्हें बदलने की कोशिश करते हैं… बचपन से ये बताया जाता है कि गोरा रंग ही ख़ूबसूरत है ! पहले तो फ़िल्मों में गाने भी यू ही बनते थे जैसे कि … “ हम काले हैं तो क्या हुआ दिल वालें हैं”… क्या ऐसा गाना आज की डेट में बन सकता है? सब चीज़ों को बदलने में समय लगता है… हमें अपने रंग पर गर्व होना चाहिए! . . . #NotFairButLovely #RacismIsAVirus #RichaChadha #richareccomends #Truth #lockdown #selfhate #postcolonial #actorslife #fairandlovely
