Fair & Lovely skin-lightening cream being renamed due to negative connotation

Consumer goods company, Unilever will rename Fair & Lovely, a skin-lightening cream which has been criticised for promoting negative stereotypes around dark skin tones.
 
It will also remove references to whitening or lightening on the products, which are sold across Asia.
 
Unilever acknowledged the branding suggests a singular ideal of beauty.
 
Two separate petitions urging Unilever to stop the production of its Fair & Lovely range have been signed by more than 18,000 people in recent weeks.
