Olay Regenerist Sued for False and Deceptive “Anti-Aging” Claims
A class action law suit has been filed against Proctor & Gamble Co. in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging that the company has falsely advertised its Olay Regenerist line of “anti-aging” skin care products. Olay bills its product as offering various “anti-aging” benefits through its combination of ingredients such as vitamin E, pro-vitamin B5, green tea extract, allantoin and glycerin. According to the complaint, Proctor & Gamble does not possess reliable enough scientific evidence to substantiate that the ingredients contained in the line of products can support its various “anti-aging” claims.
Under California’s False Advertising Law, companies are prohibited from disseminating advertisements that contain untrue or misleading statements about the nature of a product.
