Mario Badescu Healing Cream
A settlement has been reached in a class-action lawsuit filed against Mario Badescu Skin Care Inc. in February 2013. The complaint alleges that the company fails to disclose that its Healing Cream and Control Cream products contain Hydrocrotisone and Triamcinolone Acetonide, both steroid substances that can cause serious side effects, including burning, itching, and skin atrophy. According to the settlement terms, class members are entitled to receive certificates for $45 off any Mario Badescu product at www.mariobadescu.com, or service or product at Mario Badescu’s New York Spa. Class members are entitled to receive one certificate for their Healing Cream purchases and one for their Control Cream purchases (for a total of two certificates). A final hearing will be held on May 13, 2014. (Choi et al. v. Mario Badescu Skin Care Inc. et al., Case No. BC501173, Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Los Angeles).
