Band-Aid Announces It Will Start Selling Diverse Bandages in Support of BLM

Band-Aids will finally start coming in colors besides "white people." On Thursday, Johnson and Johnson announced that it's readying a line of adhesive bandages in a variety of skin tones in an effort to “embrace the beauty of diverse skin." They also say they're rolling out the new bandages in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, even though advocates have been petitioning the company to produce other Band-Aid colors for years. "We hear you. We see you. We’re listening to you.⁣.. We are committed to launching a range of bandages in light, medium and deep shades of Brown and Black skin tones," the Band-Aid Instagram account said this week. "We are dedicated to inclusivity and providing the best healing solutions, better representing you.⁣ In addition, we will be making a donation to Black Lives Matter. We promise that this is just the first among many steps together in the fight against systemic racism.⁣ We can, we must and we will do better."The New York Postnotes that in 2018, a multi-tone bandage company called Tru-Colour debuted in Target stores nationwide. Johnson and Johnson has not said when its new Band-Aids will become available. Read more here
