This appeared on my Facebook as being from ‘Colombo, Sri Lanka’. Name caught my eye. Click image to access.

The claims being made for Glutathione.

Oh, dear! I guess it was inevitable. Brown people wanting to be white. Yikes.

Well, I of all people, cannot claim to be surprised. My adoptive mother, as I have mentioned before, so hated being dark. She would have opted for this like there was no tomorrow.

A shame.

I had never heard of ‘Glutathione’. I knew that there were drugs that claimed to make you whiter but it was not something that was of import to I. So, you live and learn.

Did some quick Googling on ‘Glutathione’. Appears that it is not harmful per se and MIGHT do some of what is claimed above. But, whitening skin is not on the list of things it is good at doing.

Yes, my life would have been very different if I had been white. But, having been born brown I would never have considered any kind of chemical treatment to make me white. But, that is I. Maybe I should have.
