New Class Action Against “Plantscription” Face Cream for Bogus Anti-Aging Benefits

On June 4, 2012, a class action was filed in the Central District of California against Estee Lauder and Origins Natural Resources, the makers of the beauty product “Plantscription.” The lawsuit alleges that Plantscription advertisements falsely promote bogus anti-aging benefits, and used a before-and-after photo of a model who never even used the product.

According to the complaint, the model featured in the Plantscription advertisement, Caroline Forsling, was actually photographed for a hair care product manufactured by Estee Lauder. However unknown to Forsling, Origins then took Forsling’s photo, digitally retouched her face to remove blemishes, and then created a bogus before-and-after photo promoting the product, which read “in just 4 weeks – 4 signs of aging visibly repaired.”

The complaint further includes a list of several actual consumer complaints stating the product did not work as advertised. The lawsuit seeks injunctive relief and money damages for fraud, unfair business practices, false advertising, and violations of California’s Consumer Remedies Act.

If you feel you have purchased a product that did not perform as advertised, please contact the attorneys of Khorrami, LLP for a free confidential consultation about your legal options.
