Aveeno Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion and Body Wash

July 2019: This case was voluntarily dismissed with prejudice because the parties reached a settlement agreement, the terms of which have not been disclosed.

May 2019: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Johnson & Johnson for allegedly falsely advertising Aveeno Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion and Body Wash. The complaint claims that the marketing for the products represents that they will relieve stress and refers to clinical studies showing that three of the products’ ingredients (the scents of lavender and the essential oils chamomile and ylang ylang) have calming benefits when, according to plaintiffs, there are no adequate scientific studies supporting such claims. (Sullivan et al v. Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc., Case No. 19-cv-2803, E. D. NY.)
