    Africans have been using these products for years. It is an unfortunate truth that speaks to a damaged mentality that many have not just in Africa but around he world, from the US to the West Indies down to the South American and right back to the motherland. Black is Beautiful and Dark is lovely and if these truths could be realized across the globe… these products wouldn’t even exist… Great Post!!!
