      |

      In the wake of all the anti-racist movements taking place across the globe, especially after US-based George Floyd's tragic death, Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL) recently announced the rebranding of its flagship brand Fair & Lovely. The company said that it will drop the word 'Fair' in the brand name 'Fair & Lovely.'

      The official Twitter account of Hindustan Unilever posted a statement, in which it said that the company will get rid of the word fair from all their Fair & Lovely range of products.

      The tweet read, "We're committed to a skincare portfolio that's inclusive of all skin tones, celebrating the diversity of beauty. That's why we're removing the words 'fairness', 'whitening' & 'lightening' from products, and changing the Fair & Lovely brand name."

      Many celebrities and netizens welcomed this progressive decision with open arms.

      The Dev D actor took to his Instagram page and wrote, "It took a world backlash and the #blacklivesmatter movement to give us a push in this direction. But make no mistake, all of you who have been vocal about the need for a cultural shift in regard to the sale and endorsement of fairness creams in our country contributed to this victory. We have a long way to go in breaking our conditioning of what constitutes for beauty, but this is a small step in the right direction. It's the starting point to a long road ahead. What a beautiful beginning! #nomorefairandlovely #peoplepower."
