Speed Stick Stain Guard Antiperspirants
July 2019: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Colgate-Palmolive for allegedly falsely marketing Speed Stick Stain Guard Antiperspirants as fighting yellow stains and white marks while providing odor and wetness protection when, according to plaintiffs, the active ingredient (aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex GLY) actually causes white marks and yellow stains and the antiperspirant is less-effective than other products because the active ingredient is diluted.
