Reporter Tania Rashid and director Simon Rawles investigate why there is such a demand for skin bleaching products in the Rainbow Nation.

One in three women questioned in a recent South African study said they use skin bleaching products. The government has passed laws to protect people from dangerous creams, but many products remain on sale, and are endorsed by celebrities.
