L'Oreal Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum Consumer Fraud Lawsuit Certified

San Francisco, CA: A consumer fraud action lawsuit filed against L'Oreal in 2011, alleging its Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum is flammable upon contact with most heat-styling tools, has been certified.

The lawsuit claims that L'Oreal failed to warn consumers that the two main ingredients in Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum, namely cyclopentasiloxane and dimethiconol, "are known to be flammable substances that should be kept away from heat sources and sources of ignition." The lawsuit continues "These ingredients are each reported to have a flashpoint of only 171 degrees Farenheit, that is, the vapor of either of them can be made to ignite and maintain a burn at this temperature. The normal and ordinary sustained heating range for commonly used styling appliances is approximately 200 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit."

The lawsuit claims L'Oreal placed "misleadingly limited, and inaccurate" warnings on the product's label implying the serum was safe to use with high-heat styling appliances.

In certifying the consumer fraud lawsuit, the judge ruled that consumers who purchased Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum from February 4, 2008 to the present may sue L'Oreal for not properly warning them that the product is hazardous when used near flames, ignition, or high-heat styling appliances such as curling irons, blow dryers, straighteners, etc.
