Four Companies Agree to Stop Falsely Promoting Their Personal-Care Products as "All Natural" or "100% Natural"; Fifth is Charged in Commission Complaint

Products Contain Artificial Ingredients Such as Dimethicone and Phenoxyethanol

Four companies that market "all natural" or "100% natural" skin care products, shampoos, and sunscreens have agreed to settle FTC charges that allege their products contain synthetic ingredients. An FTC spokesperson said that other companies should "take a lesson" from these cases and that all natural means "no artificial ingredients or chemicals." Proposed consent orders prohibit the companies from misrepresenting products as all natural or 100% natural and require the companies to have reliable evidence to support any product claims they make. FTC also issued a complaint against a fifth company for making similar claims.
