Influencers Are Told To Remove Misleading Beauty Filters

Influencers have been told, by the Advertising Standards Authority, that they cannot apply to social media adverts if they exaggerate the effect of the product.

The ASA ruled this, in direct response to the #filterdrop campaign that called for it to be compulsory for influencers to state when they use a beauty filter to promote skincare or cosmetics.

The #filterdrop campaign was started by Sacha Pallari in July 2020.

Miss Pallari told the BBC, ‘I feel like the detrimental effect this is having on social media users has finally been taken seriously and this is a huge step in the right direction for how filters are used and the way cosmetics are advertised online.’

‘I can now help make a difference to how these women view themselves in the mirror and that’s amazing’
