Date:5/28/2008

Documentary Narrated by Actress Sanaa Lathan Celebrates Inspirational

Stories of how People of Color Feel About and Relate to Their Skin

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., May 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Skin is amazing: it covers our body, and reveals our soul. For many, skin is a symbol of pride, for others it's a canvas to tell a story -- and for almost all it represents a heritage to be honored. Skin means something different to almost everyone you ask. Vaseline(R) Cocoa Butter traveled the globe asking people "what does your skin mean to you?" and compiled responses in a short film, Vaseline Skin Stories, that finds while continents may divide us, the experience of skin unites us. The film, narrated by Tony Award-nominated actress Sanaa Lathan, premieres at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans on July 4, 2008. Vaseline Cocoa Butter is giving people a chance to attend the global premiere by asking them to visit http://www.skinvoice.com to enter our sweepstakes and add to the Vaseline tapestry of skin stories by sharing how they honor their skin. Winners will also be able to attend the Essence Music Festival, which features performances by some of the best names in music including Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown, Keyshia Cole and Jill Scott.

Skin cloaks us, but only begins to cover who we are as individuals. The 20-minute Vaseline Skin Stories documentary, set against local, social and cultural backdrops, features personal narratives from across the world including the United States, South America, the United Kingdom and Africa. The inspirational stories touch on the similarities and differences between people's skin as it relates to their lives, "My skin is magic, my skin is strength, and my skin is resistance. My ancestors suffered so much, but today here I am, like a queen." Such eloquence imparts a poignant yet powerful tone to Vaseline Skin Stories.
