Suave 30-Day Smoothing Kit Class Action Settlement Reached

This is a settlement for the Personal Injury lawsuit.

New York, NY: A settlement has been reached in the defective product causing personal injury class action pending against Unilever United States, Inc. ("Unilever") and two other companies (collectively, "Defendants") arising out of the purchase or use of the Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion 30-Day Smoothing Kit ("Smoothing Kit") in the United States before February 17, 2014.

The Plaintiffs allege that Unilever misled consumers into purchasing and using the Smoothing Kit by making false and misleading statements concerning the safety of the Smoothing Kit, and by failing to disclose that the Smoothing Kit posed an unreasonable risk of hair and/or scalp injury when used by consumers in accordance with the product warnings and instructions, or when misused by consumers in ways that were foreseeable. All Defendants deny that they did anything wrong and deny that the Smoothing Kit posed an unreasonable risk of harm to consumers.

The case was filed in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois and is titled "Reid, et al. v. Unilever United States, Inc., et al.," Case No. 12 CV 6058 (the "Lawsuit"). Related cases were filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Kentucky and the United States District Court for the Northern District of California.

The proposed settlement applies to eligible class members who purchased or used the Suave Keratin Smoothing Kit before February 17, 2014. The kits must have been purchased for personal or household use.

The settlement includes a one-time reimbursement of up to $10 and/or reimbursement for the costs of treating class members who suffered bodily injury to their hair or scalp, and who does not timely request exclusion.

While no proof of purchase is required, Class Members are encouraged to submit proof of purchase of the Suave Keratin Smoothing Kit as well as receipts documenting the costs of treating their injuries. Submitting these documents may increase the amount of compensation Class Members are eligible to receive.
