The range features different colours to match different skintones.
Band-Aid is creating adhesive bandages that match more skin colors. Currently, most of the options lighter in colour – leading to the perception that it has been made with only white skins in mind. People have been petitioning for the brand to produce more inclusive hues, and now it’s actually happening. Band-Aid made the announcement on Instagram on June 11 with a picture of five bandages in a range of light to dark colors. In the caption, they acknowledged that they “must” and that they “will” do better. Although they didn’t specify when the new line would be coming, it appears to be in the works.
