Meanwhile, the authenticity of GNC’s Vitamin E Skin Oil is being challenged in another California federal court, and Unilever ducks a class action in Texas concerning mercury in Pond’s Rejuveness.

According to the plaintiff, Unilever’s Pond’s Rejuveness Anti-Wrinkle Cream is defective insofar as tested product has been found to contain unlabeled mercury, constituting negligence that has resulted in user injuries. The plaintiff seeks certification of a transnational class and compensatory and punitive damages, among other relief.
