St. Ives Body Lotions
August 2019: A federal judge dismissed some of the claims in this case concluding that the plaintiffs did not have standing for the injunctive relief claims and did not state a claim as to the labels used after 2015. Other claims in the case – including ones about the older labels – will move forward.
April 2019: Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint similarly alleging that the St. Ives® lotions and body washes are natural when, according to the complaint, the products contain unnatural and synthetic ingredients.
April 2017: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Unilever for allegedly falsely marketing St. Ives body lotions as being “Made with 100% Natural Moisturizers” when they actually contain artificial and synthetic ingredients. (Robinson et al v. Unilever United States, Inc. and Does 1-25, Case No. 17-cv-3010, C. D. Cal.)
