For some Twitter users, the idea of Band-Aids in shades of skin tone is appealing. (Credits: twitter/@hvgoenka)
Many users argued that these adhesive Band-Aids are great for cosmetic purposes.
Harsh Goenka, chairman of RPG Group, is a master of sharing thought-provoking posts. The industrialist has always posted videos or pictures that can inspire his followers. But his recent tweet is different. It seems that Harsh Goenka was definitely not impressed with a novelty and left no stone unturned to express his opinion. Wondering what brought it on? It was a couple of Band-Aids that bothered Goenka. These were no ordinary Band-Aids. In fact, they matched the skin color of the person wearing them. Don’t believe us? Scroll down and see for yourself. The post has sparked a debate on Twitter about unnecessary inventions.
Harsh Goenka shared a picture of band-aids matching different skin tones. The industrialist wrote, “Was it really necessary to match the skin tone… some innovation just doesn’t make sense!”
Many Twitter users were surprised to see this picture. Some called it a “lifestyle” product, while others questioned the need for skin-tone matching Band-Aids.
“Matching skin tones is good for the lipstick business but not essential for Band-Aids!” read a comment.

Some speculated that the product may be marketed as a lifestyle item rather than a medical one.
May be they are planning to position it as a lifestyle product and not a medical product- Sunil Barsaiyan (@sunil_barsaiyan) May 9, 2023
Some felt the product was “racist”.
Racist product 😀😀😀 – Lakshya Advani (@LaksshyaAdvani) May 9, 2023
“Why would anyone do this? If you get hurt, put a band-aid on and fix it instead of looking for a matching skin tone. Weird,” commented a user.
Why would anyone do that? If you get hurt, put on a band-aid and work with it instead of trying to find a matching skin tone. Funny – Manjot Singh Bindra 🇮🇳 (@BindraManjot) May 9, 2023
“Bandeded” was what one person said.
Some were nostalgic about the cartoon-inspired Band-Aids they used as kids.
Not at all.. 😕, it’s better to have kids wala hai, cartoon character bane hote hain— 🌄Kiran🇮🇳 (@SimpleKiran26) May 9, 2023
On the other hand, many came out in defense of the product, claiming it meant a lot to people of color.
It really means a lot to people of color. So please don’t just say things without deep understanding. You don’t know how much people suffer just because of the color of their skin. — 🇺🇸Kalpana Jaggi🇮🇳 (@kalpanajaggi) May 9, 2023
Why do Band-Aids only come in “flesh” colors when skin colors are so diverse? It’s time to take a stand and demand bandages that match all shades of ugliness! ” Wrote an account.

Another commented, “Yes, matching skin tone is essential for perfect camouflage- ask us – our face compact should match our skin tone perfectly.”
Earlier, Harsh Goenka had shared a clip of an adorable brother-sister duo trying to perform a magic trick and how it backfired. The clip shows the girl trying to “disappear” her brother. What follows is a riot of laughter.
The clip was first shared by industrialist and author Harsh Mariwala, who called it the “best magic trick ever performed in history”. Goenka had re-shared the video.
