What is Vitiligo?

Vitiligo is a non contagious, autoimmune disorder that causes your skin to lose its color. There is no cure or known cause for the disorder. Some studies suggest it may be stress related or an over production of hydrogen peroxide in the body, some other studies suggest it is food related. Because vitiligo can make one’s skin appear to look like burns and can pop up anywhere it is a condition that can be difficult to conceal. Vitiligo members have added pressure to deal with society when your skin is not in! At VBI we are proud to be an organization to shed light on our community and to be a beacon of confidence for our members.
