Pela Tonye Okiemute (pictured above in his before and after bleaching phase) who specializes in skin whitening and sales of bleaching product says there is no negative effect to it. He recently granted an interview to Encomium mag. Excepts below...
"Why do you deal in bleaching despite the fact that it has a negative impact on the skin?The negative impact from bleaching is when you use bad product. Gone are those days when people use bad products like Hydroquine and other forms of chemicals that cause damage to the skin. We use advanced products and herbs which makes our skin look healthy. We have discovered some other products like Gluthatione. They are pills that are medically good and needed for the body, which has its side effect as lightening the skin. So it is not a bad side effect because many people want to lighten up so they lighten up and become healthy. Gluthathione kills and reduces Cancer. It kills kidney problem, kills lungs problems. It reduces high blood pressure. It is anti-aging, clears spots and pimples from your face and body. It is more of a healthy medication with its side effect as whitening.

So aside the whitening effect of gluthathione, are there other side effects?
No there are no other side effects. It is one of the best anti-oxidants. Gluthathione is very essential because it helps people who smoke and have Tabacco and nicotine in their system, it is a major antioxidant. It detoxifies the system, it takes away the unwanted orgasms and irregularities in the system. It flushes off the nicotine and tobacco. In most cases for the first time, one or two weeks one would urinate a lot but it passes out the toxins in form of urine and excrete from the system. It is not a bad side effect because it would help keep them healthy and give them a glowing skin. It is when you take an overdose that you have the side effect, which is the whitening side effect. The more you use it the whiter you would get, its not like panadol or paracetamol that when you take an overdose, it would be a problem. But for this when you take an overdose, the whitening effect and process increases."
Did I just see "it takes away the unwanted orgasms"? That's an oxymoron right? There's no such thing as an unwanted orgasm! Lol. I joke.
On a more serious note, I've learnt a lot from this excerpt, I'm too lazy to do my own research so for now, I believe all he has said. For those of you who had fears, I believe they've been dispelled.
All ye smokers, and former smokers like moi, you might want to consider what he's said. We can make our skins lighter while lowering our chances of getting the dreaded lung cancer. It's Win-Win!!!
Ok my children. Go forth and bleach!
