Another MLM Company Faces a Class Action Over Eyelash Enhancer
Consumers filed a class action against Rodan + Fields, a multilevel marketing company that sells cosmetics, for violating state consumer protection laws and engaging in fraudulent and unfair marketing of its Lash Boost eye serum. The plaintiffs state that the company fails to disclose the well-known side effects of a key ingredient in Lash Boost, a chemical called isopropyl cloprostenate, which is a type of medication called a prostaglandin analog used to treat eye conditions such as glaucoma. Another company, Allergen, with a similar product does disclose the side effects including "change(s) in iris color, eyelid drooping, itchy eyes, eye/lid discoloration, thinning and loss of eyelashes/loss of eyelash hair, eye sensitivity, eye infections, and vision impairment." Andersen Sleater Sianni attorneys represent consumers in class actions involving deceptive and unfair business practices including omitting information regarding health and safety.
