Summary
The "fashion" of lightening the skin represents a very serious problem because it involves the melanoderm populations, not only in Africa, but in the world, undermining their physical integrity and psychological equilibrium. The diffusion of the skin-whitening practice is much more intense in the areas where there are inter-relations between Blacks and Whites. Among the drugs used, mercury prevails under the form of biioduro salts
in aseptic soaps; hydroquinone taken in form of per os pills, and cortisoides. The resource of using traditional skin-bleaching plants seems frequent, but the information we tried to gather from informants has been very scarce.
