Thanks to Kerry Washington, Neutrogena now has shades to accommodate all skin tones.
Washington serves as a brand ambassador for the company and recently made an effort to help create darker shades for women around the world. Because of Kerry, women of all skin colors can wear the foundation and for one fan, she received the good news regarding the updated line from the Scandal star herself.
A woman named Ebony recently reached out to the skin care line inquiring about their foundation and lack of range. But when Ebony got a video call back from customer service, she saw the face of Washington on the other end.
“I wanted to personally deliver the message of our expansion and how proud I am of it, and it really meant a lot to me in particular when people asked about why Neutrogena would bring me on if there wasn’t foundation for women of color,” Washington told Ebony in the clip. “I’ve been working really hard on expanding our foundations.”
During a recent interview with PeopleStyle, Washington said about brand’s foundation: “Inclusivity is a value that is core to my beliefs and a passion of mine. So to be able to be hands on making this technology available to everybody and also coming up with lip colors that look good on everybody … There’s no reason why women of all ethnicities should be like ‘Oh, I love this technology but there is no color for me.’”
