A testament to how far Thais will go for whiter skin is a soap said to be made from salmon semen. The salmon semen soap costs about 50 baht on social media, where the sellers claimed that it will help to whiten skin. Yikes.
In Thailand, a dangerous product called ‘Chlorine Soap’ has been touted to whiten skin. It contains calcium hypochlorite, used to disinfect swimming pools. The manufacturers claim that it kills bacteria and whitens skin in 1-2 weeks. *facepalm*
