Skin cream manufacturers make many claims about the benefits of their products, including that the products will reduce and repair wrinkles, firm and tighten the skin, and repair the skin. These type of anti-wrinkle/skin benefit claims are commonly considered cosmetic drug claims under federal law. In order to make such claims, manufacturers are required to obtain the FDA’s approval prior to putting their products on the market to make sure the products are safe and effective. In many instances, manufacturers fail to obtain FDA approval and, as a result, are unlawfully selling their products. By manufacturers skipping the FDA approval process, consumers have no way of knowing if the product might cause adverse side effects or even not work at all.
Bonnett Fairbourn is currently pursuing lawsuits against various manufacturers for making unapproved skin benefit representations on their products, including certain CeraVe®, Garnier SkinActive, L’Oreal RevitaLift® and NIVEA CoQ10 products.
