Whenever there is a small bruise or a cut on the body, we often turn to the sticking plaster Band-Aid. Almost everybody has it in their first aid kit. And now a post by Industrialist Harsh Goenka on the microblogging site Twitter about the adhesive bandage matching different skin tones has sparked a debate online.
“Was matching skin tones really necessary? Some innovations don’t make sense!,” read the caption shared by the business tycoon Harsh Goenka.
Many Twitter users were left baffled by the photo of the popular brand. The post immediately went viral and left the Twitter users divided. Since being shared by Goenka, the post has amassed more than 55,000 views, 425 likes and tons of comments.
“Why would one do that? If you have got hurt, apply a band-aid and be done with it, rather than looking for matching skin tones. Weird,’ commented one user on the post.
Amritt CEO, Gunjan Bagla wrote, “May not make sense to you. A product designed for white skin may be fine for you. Some brown people may prefer to match their own color.”
