The Honest Company Class Action Settlement Details Revealed – Mislabeling Lawsuit Ends


It appears honesty is not the best policy for The Honest Company. Several primary plaintiffs allege The Honest Company fraudulently labeled produces as “natural,” “All natural,” Naturally derived,” or “Plant based.” However, the plaintiffs asserted that all of the products contained synthetic and/or toxic ingredients. The Honest Company class action settlement results from the merging of numerous different class action lawsuits filed against the company

After the initial filing of a class action lawsuit against The Honest Company, plaintiffs Julie Hedges and Candace Hiddlestone filed a similar class action lawsuit that emphasized the natural ingredients claim was in fact deception, as many of the “natural products included methylisothiazolinone, cocamidopropyl betaine and phenoxyethanol.” After The Honest Company agreed with plaintiff assertions, both parties signed off on the class action settlement in June of 2017.

Terms of the settlement require The Honest Company to set up a settlement fund exceeding $7.3 million. The money goes towards paying class members and the incentive awards for the primary plaintiffs. Settlement funds also go towards paying court costs and attorney fees. The Honest Company has also consented to change company labels and promotional materials. Class counsel stated The Honest Company can no longer label any of the qualifying products as natural or 100% natural. The company must never use phrases such as “no harsh chemicals, ever!” to promote products that contain methylisothiazolinone or cocamidopropylamine oxide.

The Honest Company continues to deny the class action lawsuit allegations. However, the company settled the case to avoid the high costs associated with a civil trial.
