In a rather quick turn of events, the lawsuit against beauty brand EOS has now been settled.
The company faced backlash two weeks ago when customers began claiming the Visibly Soft Lip Balm caused them to have adverse reactions to the product such as severe dryness, bleeding, and blistering. However, both EOS and Mark Gregaros, the lawyer who represented the plaintiffs and brought the class-action lawsuit, have amicably resolved the problem.
A statement from EOS has recently been released and states the following:
We are pleased to announce that the class action lawsuit brought against eos earlier this month has been resolved. Our products are safe—and this settlement confirms that. Our lip balms are hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested, made with the highest quality ingredients, meet or exceed all safety and quality standards set by our industry and are validated by rigorous safety testing conducted by independent labs. We love our customers and their enjoyment of our products is our top priority. We thank them for their continued support.
Mark Gregaros also released a statement that reads:
I am very pleased that we have been able to so quickly and amicably resolve the matter with eos lip balm products. This is a testament to eos being responsive to the concerns of their consumers. eos has demonstrated through data that their lip balms are hypoallergenic, and has provided a mechanism for individual instances to be resolved. eos makes great products and the company is doing the right thing by adding more information about their lip balm products on packaging so that buyers can make informed choices. We will be applying to the courts to close this case.
