Philosophy Class Action – Company is Sued Over Ultimate Miracle Worker Cream

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.”

    • I used Philosophy miracle worker age-resetting night time moisturizer. I woke the following morning severely burnt. The second morning I woke severely swollen, face /eyes and completely distorted . I called for an emergency dermatologist appt. 02/02/2018 . I was seen and put on a steroid. I had two laser treatments by a licensed esthetician and an anti-oxident /hydrating mask to further assist in calming the irritation and swelling. I have my next appt. 03/01/2018. I have paper work from both and pictures of my injured skin. If this happened to anyone else, please come forward. This product is not safe. the lot number of the cream is either 7101 or 58MM.
