Yvonne Nelson has finally clamped down on rumors about her skin color, claiming her skin color is due to the effect of prolonged use of Cocoa Butter.
The rumours, fuelled by her ever lightening skin complexion, has been ongoing for nearly a year. But the mention of her name by a US website, Atlanta Blackstar, as one of 15 black celebrities believed to be whitening their skin, moved Miss Nelson to give a response.
In a statement released this morning, the Ghanaian actress is alleged to have claimed that though her skin complexion has lightened over the years, it has absolutely nothing to do with skin bleaching.
Queen Elizabeth Cocoa Butter, which is the official moisturiser of the British monarch, after whom the product is named, is rich in akomfem oil, which is believed to have given Miss Yvonne Nelson this caramel skin colour. It also contains vitamins A, E and F, which are essential for nourishment and moisturising without leaving the skin greasy.
Apostle Safo, a brand ambassador of Queen Elizabeth Cocoa Butter, has also jumped to Miss Nelson’s defence saying, “my caramel skin complexion like that of Yvonne, is as a result of the use of Queen Elizabeth, it has absolutely nothing to do with bleaching. Hopefully people will believe us and allow this matter to be laid to rest.”
