Top Class Actions viewers are starting to receive checks in the mail from the Babyganics false advertising settlement worth as much as $340.
Lead plaintiffs in the Babyganics class action lawsuit alleged that products touted as organic by the manufacturer, KAS Direct LLC, were falsely advertised.
The plaintiffs claimed in the Babyganics skincare lawsuit that, while the skincare line was advertised as “organic” and “mineral-based,” the products, in truth, contained synthetic ingredients.
Specifically, the plaintiffs say Babyganics products were advertised as containing minerals, such as zinc oxide. Zinc oxide sits on top of the skin to block dangerous UV light from the sun; however, the makers of Babyganics allegedly used chemical sunscreen ingredients that are absorbed by the skin.
The Babyganics skincare lawsuit claimed that consumers were misled into purchasing various items, including sunscreen, lotion, shampoo, body wash, rash cream, toothpaste, baby wipes, dish soap and laundry detergent.
