For all who think that singer and entrepreneur, Diamond, may have done ‘something’ to the colour of her skin, hear her: “I don’t bleach neither do my newly launched beauty products have bleaching effect”.
But christened Diamond Appiah says she’s so much aware of the adverse effects of bleaching that it is non-existent on her ‘things-to-do list and wonders why anyone would link her to that practice.
In a chat with Showbiz on Monday, Diamond, who recently launched the Diamond products said, “I’m strongly against bleaching and I always discourage my clients via social media to desist from the act because it could not be used alongside my products.
According to her, her products are made from plant extracts and do not bleach but help to enhance the skin.
My products nourish the skin and restore damaged skin caused by bleaching. I also have products that treat acne, hyper-pigmentation and dark spots so how can they be used for bleaching the skin?”, she queried.
Touching on the assertion that the billboards and fliers of her Diamond products suggest her cream is meant to lighten the skin, Diamond, famed for her ‘Taste My Apple’ single, said “I am the face of my products and naturally a light skin person, but that, does not mean that, when one uses my product, that person will become as light skinned as I am.
“In the cosmetic industry, you need an attractive skin to sell your beauty products even if you are advertising talcum powder. Most times, light skin girls are used but that does not mean the product is a bleaching cream.
“I have been using the product for the past three years and it has no adverse effect as being speculated. My clients are very happy with the product and besides, I am a very strong campaigner against bleaching so I cannot sell something I do not believe in,” she said.
Away from her beauty products, Diamond who is also an actress and known for her out of the ordinary outfits and hairstyles said she has a new single, Superman, coming out soon.
