- The Honest Company Inc, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) Marketing & Sales Practices Litigation
- Case No. 2:16-ML-02719 AB (RAOx)
- Pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, Western Division
Class members in the Honest Company false advertising lawsuit contend that Honest misrepresented their products as being free of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). Six claims would be settled if the preliminary settlement is approved upon final hearing. The class references Honest’s blog and social media posts as misleading potential consumers into believing the products are all natural.
Honest lists their products as a coconut-based cleaner that works as a softer alternative to SLS. However, contentions that it is fact the products consist of a substantial amount of SLS. Despite the claims, Honest persists against all allegations despite agreeing to a settlement in order to avoid unnecessary litigation.
Qualifying members may be eligible for compensation. The class may receive a cash distribution based on the level of purchasing and verification. An alternative option is for members to receive a settlement credit for Honest products valued at 1.5x the value of cash recovery.
Filing class members will be represented by Pearson Simon & Warshaw LLP and Freed Kanner London & Millen LLC. Honest Company is being defended by Cooley LLP.
