Adore Organic Cosmetics Settlement Notes
- Mollicone v. Universal Handicraft
- Case No. 1:17-cv-21468-RNS
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida
In 2016, plaintiff Lisa Mollicone brought this class action lawsuit against Adore Organic Cosmetics alleging the products are falsely advertised and don’t provide any anti-aging benefits.
Specifically, Mollicone says that Adore Organic Cosmetics do not “halt the aging process” despite a comprehensive marketing campaign that their ‘exclusive Plant Stem Cell Formula’ is proven to restore youthful appearance by protecting your skin’s own stem cells and encouraging them to regenerate healthy texture.”
Moreover, the plant stem cells within the Adore Organic Cosmetics products are not “exclusive.” Instead, the “plant stem cells” in Adore Organic Cosmetics are really a proprietary ingredient called PhytoCellTec™ that is manufactured by Mibelle Biochemistry of Switzerland. PhytoCellTec™ is also an ingredient in several other cosmetics products, many of which are far less expensive than the super-premium Adore cosmetics, according to the complaint.
Worse yet, the lawsuit contends is that Adore Organic Cosmetics are being sold unlawfully. Reportedly, the FDA has warned the marketers of a similar cosmetics products containing PhytoCellTec that their products were considered to be an “Unapproved New Drug” in violation of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetics Act.
Adore Organic Cosmetics denies it did anything wrong. Complete details about the case and settlement are provided on the Adore Organic Cosmetics settlement website.
