Nigeria's Booming Skin Bleaching Market

Nigeria's Booming Skin Bleaching Market

In Nigeria, a growing number of men and women are using skin whitening creams because they believe a fairer complexion will help them succeed in life.

According to the World Health Organisation, more than 70 percent of Nigerian women admit they use such products -- despite the health hazards.

That compares with 59 percent in Togo, and 27 in Senegal. Al Jazeera's Mohammed Adow reports from Lagos.
