$1.3M Proposed Neutrogena Naturals Consumer Fraud Class Action Settlement

This is a settlement for the lawsuit.

Los Angeles, CA: A proposed $1.3 million settlement has been reached in a consumer fraud class action lawsuit over packaging and advertising of Neutrogena Naturals products.

The lawsuit, entitled Stephenson, et al. v. Neutrogena Corporation, alleges the Neutrogena Naturals products packaging and advertising falsely indicated they were natural. Neutrogena denies all the plaintiffs' allegations and is entering into this settlement to avoid burdensome and costly litigation. The settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing.

A fund of $1.3 million will be created to reimburse Class Members for a portion of the cost of products they purchased and to pay for notice, claim administration and maintenance costs of up to $550,000. Neutrogena will also make certain changes to the labels for the Neutrogena Naturals products.

As part of the settlement, Neutrogena has agreed to change the labels and advertising for the Naturals products by: (1) removing the term "petrochemicals"from the statement "No harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, dyes, phthalates"on the Naturals product labels and/or packages and replacing it with the term "petrolatum"; and (2) adding a statement regarding the percentage of each product that is naturally derived to the front of the labels and/or packages of the Naturals products.

You are a member of the Class if you purchased at least one of the following products between January 1, 2011 and April 22, 2013:

Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser
Purifying Pore Scrub
Face and Body Bar
Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover
Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer
Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Night Cream.
