The recent Dove advert is causing an outrage across the world. South Africa has also shown displeasure at the advert saying it is racist.
We have a few of our celebrities who are bold enough to weigh in on the advert of such a big brand. Dove has since apologized saying, “An image we recently posted on Facebook missed the mark in representing women of color thoughtfully. We deeply regret the offense it caused.”

Hello @Dove. Can you take a question, What does ‘Normal to Dark skin’ mean?
Never buy Dove products again….
The advertising and positioning of Dove has ALWAYS been very white….it never appealed to me. I use green bar with and coconut oil
