$1.3 Million Settlement Reached in Consumer Fraud Class Action Against Neutrogena Naturals

A settlement has been reached in Stephenson, et al. v. Neutrogena Corporation, the consumer fraud class action lawsuit over the packaging and advertising of Neutrogena Naturals products. According to the suit, Neutrogena Naturals products packaging and advertising falsely indicated the products were “natural.”  Neutrogena has agreed to create a $1.3 million settlement fund to reimburse Class Members for a portion of the cost of products they purchased. The Class Members eligible for settlement include anyone who purchased a product from the Neutrogena Naturals line between January 1, 2011 and April 22, 2013.

Despite settling the lawsuit, Neutrogena denies all the plaintiffs’ allegations. Neutrogena has, however, agreed to change the labels and advertising for the Naturals products by: (1) removing the term “petrochemicals” from the statement “No harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, dyes, phthalates” on the Naturals product labels and/or packages and replacing it with the term “petrolatum”; and (2) adding a statement regarding the percentage of each product that is naturally derived to the front of the labels and/or packages of the Naturals products.
