In creating this site, we have endeavoured to represent a diverse range of bodies and experiences. Whilst adjustments have been made for lighting in photography, all skin tones, textures and features are shown as they exist in reality.
As a member of both Unstereotype Alliance and the WFA (World Federation of Advertisers) Diversity and Inclusion Task Force, we, at Canesten, are committed to make as many people as possible feel represented, on this platform, and beyond.
