The Honest Company Products
January 2016: A Consolidated Class Action Complaint (combining the lawsuits against The Honest Company) was filed. The complaint makes similar allegations (i.e., that the company markets products – including hand soap, dish soap, diapers, multi-surface cleaner, and sunscreen – as natural and effective when, in reality, the products contain non-natural ingredients and the sunscreen is not effective).
September 2015: Two false advertising class-action lawsuits were filed against The Honest Company. Both lawsuits allege that the company misleadingly represents that its sunscreen is effective for sunblock protection when this claim is not true. According to one of the lawsuits (Michael et al v. Honest Company Inc.), the company continues to represent that its sunscreen provides “broad spectrum SPF 30” sun protection after reducing the amount of the only active sunscreen ingredient in March 2015.
The other lawsuit (Rubin et al v. The Honest Company, Inc.) also alleges that the company misleadingly represents that its Dish Soap, Hand Soap, Multi-Surface Cleaner, and Diapers are “natural” when they actually contain unnatural ingredients.
