A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit about the packaging and advertising of NEUTROGENA® Naturals products. The Plaintiffs in the lawsuit claim that the packaging and advertising for these products falsely claimed they were natural. Neutrogena denies all the Plaintiffs’ allegations and is entering into this settlement to avoid burdensome and costly litigation. The settlement is not an admission of wrongdoing.
Am I a Class Member?
You are a Class Member if you bought at least one of the following NEUTROGENA® Naturals products at any time between January 1, 2011, and April 22, 2013: NEUTROGENA® Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser, Purifying Pore Scrub, Face and Body Bar, Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover, Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer, or Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Night Cream.
What Can I Get from the Settlement?
A fund of $1.3 million will be created to pay Class Members for a portion of the cost of products they purchased and to pay for notice, claim administration and maintenance costs of up to $550,000. Neutrogena will also make some changes to the labels for the NEUTROGENA® Naturals products.
If you are a Class Member, you may return a Claim Form to receive $1 for each purchase of the Purifying Facial Cleanser, Purifying Pore Scrub, Face and Body Bar, or Fresh Cleansing + Makeup Remover, and $2 for each purchase of the Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Moisturizer or Multi-Vitamin Nourishing Night Cream (up to a maximum of $10 per person). A detailed Class Notice and copies of the Claim Form are available at www.facialcleansersettlement.com or by calling 1-855-728-4604.
What Are My Options?
To ask for a cash payment and stay in the Class, you must send in a Claim Form by August 26, 2013. If you do not wish to participate in the settlement, you may exclude yourself from the Class by July 5, 2013. If you exclude yourself, you can’t get money from this settlement if it is approved. If you wish to object to the settlement, you must stay in the Class and object to it by July 5, 2013. This is only a summary. Visit the website for important information about these options.
A Court authorized this notice. Before any money is paid, the Court will have a hearing on August 21, 2013, to decide whether to approve the settlement and Class Counsel’s request for up to $500,000 in attorneys’ fees and expenses. The motion(s) by Class Counsel for attorneys’ fees will be available for viewing on the settlement website after they are filed. Those fees will be paid separately and will not reduce the amounts available from the $1.3 million claim fund. You don’t have to attend the hearing.
Claim Forms Must Be Returned By August 26, 2013.
