Rodan + Fields Lash Boost Product Grows Lashes at a Dangerous Cost!
Rodan + Fields, an American manufacturer of skincare products, has entered into a $38M settlement with consumers over claims that its Lash Boost product contains dangerous and severe side effects. Though many consumers reported lash growth after using this product, they also reported the product’s ingredients have caused ocular irritation and iris color change. The company failed to disclose any potential risks of using this product.
In addition to Rodan + Fields omitting information about the potential side effects of using this product, the class action lawsuit also alleges they incorrectly marketed this product due to the fact that it contains isopropyl cloprostenate and technically should be considered a drug regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Are You Eligible For Compensation?
According to the settlement agreement, Rodan + Fields has agreed to pay $38 million. If you purchased a Rodan + Fields Lash Boost between October 1, 2016, and March 11, 2022, you may be able to receive up to $175 cash benefit or a credit voucher for no more than $250 to be used on any Rodan + Fields product.
Eligible consumers must submit a claim form by September 7, 2022 if they wish to be included in the settlement distribution. Proof of purchase is not required.
Rodan + Fields To Alter Product Marketing
In addition to providing the cash to fund this settlement, Rodan + Fields will also revise its instructions and warnings on the product itself to ensure there is full disclosure about the product and its potential side effects.
