What’s The Honest Company Settlement About
The lawsuits allege that Honest engaged in unfair and deceptive marketing and advertising by referring to the Honest multi-surface cleaner (regular and concentrate), dish soap (regular and concentrate, all scents) and laundry detergent as being “free” of sodium lauryl sulfate or SLS, when they allegedly contained SLS.
Honest denies that it has done anything wrong or illegal and admits no liability. The Court has not decided that the Representative Plaintiffs or Honest should win this Action or any of the other pending actions. Instead, both sides agreed to a Settlement. That way, they avoid the cost of a trial, and the Class Members will receive relief now rather than years from now, if at all.
This is a separate lawsuit, different form another we posted about a few weeks back that covered more products. You can see that post here.
All persons residing in the United States who purchased eligible products, and did not subsequently return, between January 17, 2012 and August 2, 2017. Excluded from the Class are companies that purchased the Products at wholesale for resale.
What Products Are Included?
- Honest Multi-Surface Cleaner (regular and concentrate)
- Honest Dish Soap (regular and concentrate, all scents)
- Honest Laundry Detergent
