Ghana’s Food And Drugs Authority Has Banned Bleaching Creams In The Country


Black skin is beautiful.

Ghana’s Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has finally banned the sale of bleaching products in Ghana.

Bleaching has long been condemned in the country due to its health implications but its practitioners are on an ever increasing high.

The ideology to ditch the black skin for a fair one is a problem in the Ghanaian society. For practitioners who want to find their way around what is obviously bleaching, they use the term ‘toning’.

Acting Chief Executive of the Food and Drugs Authority, Mimi Darko appearing before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of Parliament explained how her organization was using laboratory tests to identify and ban bleaching creams.

“The bleaching agent in most bleaching creams is hydroquinone and the Ghana standard now is, there should be zero percent hydroquinone in bleaching creams and the Food and Drugs Board, being the regulatory authority, has taken that standard and we are now implementing it. So since January this year (2017), we don’t register a product that has hydroquinone in the product,” Mrs Darko said.

This initiative by the Food and Drugs Authority is seen as a step in the right direction by many Ghanaians.
