New Delhi: International pop star Rihanna, who created a stir in India by tweeting in support of the protesting farmers, is now under the scanner of the National Commission For Protection of Child Rights for allegedly using mica from Indian mines – where “Child labourers work in dire conditions” – in her cosmetics brand ‘Fenty Beauty’.
Demanding an investigation into the matter, the LRO said, “With this letter, we would like to request you to investigate whether Fenty Beauty is using uncertified mica and if true then please start appropriate penal action against the company and its owners.”
The RMI is a global coalition for action to enable responsible and sustainable mica supply chain in India that is free of child labour.
