Unique Hearing Aids Match the Skin Tones of Black People — Making Them Less Noticeable

Nationwide — Hearing industry analysts claim that there are 34 million Americans who need hearing aids but don’t wear them. Why not? One of the biggest reasons is stigma. There is a wide-spread perception that if you wear hearing aids you are old, infirm and senile. For African Americans the impact is enormous. Why? Because the shiny white transmission tubes of modern hearing aids create the greatest visual contrast for people with darker skin. The most practical way to minimize that blatant display of color contrast is with a product called VANISH™.

Because stigma is such a significant issue, and hearing aid manufacturers can’t fix the problem, VANISH was developed to provide the most efficient way to diminish the visual awareness of hearing aids. Of the nine different dyes developed to blend with all ethnic skin tones, three are designed and specifically formulated to match African American skin colors.

Here are some other unique features:

• Each VANISH™ kit will easily process and dye two hearing tubes.

• The dye can be reused numerous times.

• The dye process is permanent, non-allergenic, 100% organic and non-toxic and will not harm the hearing aid.

• The process has been refined over the years to be easy to understand, quick to apply and effective.

• There is a 100% guarantee of satisfaction, no questions asked.

The VANISH™ product has been developed to encourage the use of hearing aids by diminishing visible awareness. There is a huge lapse of time (7 years) between the awareness of hearing loss and purchasing a hearing aid. One very strong benefit of VANISH is to eliminate or reduce this unnecessary delay.

Here what one satisfied customer had to say:

“Being a dark-skinned African American, the plastic hearing aid wires contrasted significantly against my complexion. Moreover, as an attorney, the ability to communicate effectively is a critical skill. Not wearing my hearing aids is not an option. For the last several years, I have been looking for a way to hide my wires so that people look me in the eyes when we speak, not at my ears. Finally, I came across the VANISH product. After using the VANISH D9 shade, my wires now blend into my skin and are barely visible, even to me. I feel so much better about myself. I had no idea how much the visible hearing aid wires were affecting my self-confidence. Now those of us who wear hearing aids can concentrate on how we live instead of how we look.” — Selma, Fresno, CA.

VANISH™ is manufactured and marketed by Harmony Products in Longmont, Colorado. It has been recognized by the American Academy of Audiology as the “Best New Product” and sold throughout the United States and 19 different international countries.
