Undisclosed Benzene Leads To Class Action Regarding EltaMD UV Aero Broad-Spectrum Full-Body Sunscreen Spray – SPF 45
A class action complaint was filed on December 22, 2021 in United States District Court, Southern District of New York, seeking to remedy the alleged deceptive and misleading business practices of Defendants Colgate-Palmolive Company and EltaMD, Inc., with respect to the marketing and sale of Defendants’ EltaMD UV Aero Broad-Spectrum Full-Body Sunscreen Spray – SPF 45 sunscreen product.
According to the complaint, the Defendants list both the active and inactive ingredients of the aforementioned product, but fail to disclose that the product contains “benzene,” a widely recognized and incredibly dangerous substance, especially in the context of applying it to the skin.
