What’s The JASON Natural Products Settlement About
The Lawsuit alleges that Hain Celestial and Jason Natural Products falsely advertised that some of their products did not contain the chemical sodium lauryl sulfate (“SLS”). Hain Celestial and Jason Natural Products deny that they did anything wrong and stand by their Products.
The Court has not ruled on the merits of Plaintiff’s allegations against Hain Celestial and Jason Natural Products or their defenses. Instead, the Parties have agreed to a settlement, without fault or liability. That way, the Parties avoid the costs and risk of a trial, and they ensure that the Settlement Class will get compensation.
You are a member of the Settlement Class if you purchased any of the Products between August 17, 2011 and June 2, 2017. Excluded from the Settlement Class are Hain Celestial’s and Jason Natural Products’ officers, directors and employees, and those who purchased these Jason Natural products for the purpose of resale.

- JASON Long & Strong Jojoba Pure Natural Shampoo
- JASON Volumizing Lavender Shampoo
- JASON Normalizing Tea Tree Treatment Shampoo
- JASON Dandruff Relief 2 in 1 Treatment Shampoo & Conditioner

How Much Do I Get?
Hain Celestial and Jason Natural Products have agreed to create a fund of $1.1 million (the “Settlement Fund”). After deducting costs for notice and administration, attorneys’ fees and expenses, and an incentive award to the Settlement Class Representative, the Settlement Fund will be distributed to Settlement Class Members who submit a timely and valid Claim Form.
Settlement Class Members who have Proof of Purchase, which includes a receipt or product packaging among other items, may seek reimbursement of $8.00 per item purchased, up to a maximum recovery of $40.00. Settlement Class Members who do not have Proof of Purchase may seek reimbursement of $2.00 per item purchased, up to a maximum recovery of $10.00.
If the total of valid claims is less than the amount of money available to pay them, then valid claims will be increased pro rata up to the Pro Rata Minimum Remainder Settlement Funds. If the total of valid claims exceeds the amount of money available to pay them, then each award will be reduced pro rata.
You must submit a claim by September 18, 2017.
