American celebrity Blac Chyna bleaching cream to sell for N90,000 in Nigeria. She made this revelation via her Instagram post and Nigerians have reacted to the exorbitant cost of the cream.
The model and mother of two partnered with beauty brand Whitenicious by Dencia to launch her own cream aimed at restoring the skin’s “natural glow,” reducing “the visibility and intensity of age spots by lightening their appearance.
The 30-year-old social media personality promoted the cream to her Instagram followers from Nigeria ahead of her appearance at the product’s launch in Lagos this weekend.
The cream comes in a Swarovski crystal-covered pot and sells an eye-watering $250 per jar, which is estimated to be about N90,000.
Following Chyna’s post, fans took to social media to voice their criticism on the product.
See reactions below:
Blac Chyna is taking advantage of the insecurities of colourism and self hate. She is disgusting. Skin whitening cream is horrible. This should not be advertised and she is choosing Africa for a reason. Shameful.

My annoyance is not even that Blac Chyna wants to sell bleaching cream in Nigeria, is that she’s selling it at $250 that’s about 90k equivalent in Naira. And guess what?? People are definitely going to buy 🤷🏼♀️

The World Health Organization has reported that Nigerians are the highest users of skin whitening products, a whooping 77% of Nigerian women use skin whitening products on a regular basis. its no brainer why Blac Chyna decided to target the Lagos market first.

Blac Chyna launching a skin bleaching cream is just Blac Chyna doing Blac Chyna things…the real issue here is that it’s being targeted to the Nigerian market and the fact that the villainous product will most likely sell out in Nigeria.
