Class Action Suit Alleges “Inflated UV Protection Numbers” In CeraVe Lotions

December 18, 2017: 12:00 AM EST

The plaintiffs in a class action suit against L’Oréal USA and Valeant Pharmceuticals International allege that their sunscreen testing of two CeraVe body lotions shows that the actual SPF levels are far lower than those claimed by the defendants. In the case of CeraVe Body Lotion SPF 50, the average tested SPF level was only 17. 4; in Body Lotion SPF 30, the average was 16. The plaintiffs claim that the “pattern and practice” of marketing sunscreen lotions with “a false SPF number, and largely inflated UV protection numbers” have injured them. [Image Credit: © CeraVe ]
