This article was originally published in The Rose Sheet

Executive Summary

A consumer suit filed in California district court builds on recent Honest sunscreen controversy and growing criticism aimed at the "non-toxic" family brand, calling the company out for use of synthetic chemicals in its purported natural offerings, as well as efficacy claims for its sunscreen that failed to protect users. The plaintiff seeks class certification and damages of at least $5 million, as well as a "corrective" ad campaign.
