Band-aid has announced they are launching diversified bandages for different skin tones in order to “embrace the beauty of diverse skin.”

The company said in a Thursday Instagram post that they listened to customers and the black community and are “dedicated to inclusivity."

The statement included a picture of five band-aids ranging in color from light to dark.

The company usually sold bandages ranging from clear to medium in color.

Band-aid also said it will make a donation to Black Lives Matter and stands against racism, violence and injustice.

Its parent company, Johnson and Johnson, pledged 10 million dollars to fight systemic racism and injustice earlier this month.
