A consumer class action lawsuit was recently brought against Philosophy, Inc. for unfair business practices and products liability. The Philosophy class action lawsuit states that the company makes and sells several skin care creams that defendant markets as drugs, which requires FDA approval, monographs of the active ingredients on the products, and honest labeling of the benefits of the product. Moreover, Philosophy has failed to be truthful in its labeling, has not included the active ingredients, and has not obtained proper FDA approval.
Because the products are marketed as drugs, they are held to a higher standard than cosmetics and require FDA approval; usually after going under randomized, placebo controlled, double-blind clinical trials.
The complaint alleges that “on the front of each and every Ultimate Miracle Worker Product package, where consumers cannot miss it, Defendants represent that the products are “multi-rejuvenating.” Philosophy goes on to state that their products work “from the inside out” to “help your skin rebuild its natural collagen” and help your skin “naturally rejuvenate itself.”
