Babyganics SPF 50+ Sunscreens
August 2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against S. C. Johnson & Son and VMG Partners for allegedly falsely advertising babyganics mineral-based sunscreens as being SPF 50+ when, according to plaintiffs, the SPF of the sunscreens is no more than, and sometimes much lower than, SPF 30. (Carroll et al v. S. C. Johnson & Son, Inc. and VMG Partners, LLC, Case No. 17-cv-5828, N.D. Ill.)
