Honest SLS MDL Settlement

The Honest Company, Inc., SodiumLauryl Sulfate (SLS) Markeing & Sales Practices Litigation
United States District Court for the Central District of California; C.D. Cal. Case No. 16-ML-02719 AB (RAOx)

Welcome to the Honest SLS MDL Settlement Website

TO: All United States residents who purchased Honest multi-surface cleaner (regular and concentrate), dish soap (regular and concentrate, all scents) and laundry detergent between January 17, 2012 and August 2, 2017.

A settlement (“Settlement”) has been proposed in the class action lawsuit referenced above pending in the United States District Court for the Central District of California (“Action”). If the Court gives final approval to the Settlement, The Honest Company, Inc. (“Honest”) will provide for each Class Member who properly and timely completes and submits a Claim Form either, at the Class Member’s election, a check, or a Settlement Credit usable for a future purchase at Honest.com, subject to the additional conditions explained later in this notice. The value a Class Member’s award depends upon the number of relevant products he or she purchased and the number of persons who participate in the Settlement. The Court in charge of this Action has preliminarily approved the Settlement and must decide whether to give final approval to the Settlement. The relief provided to Class Members will be provided only if the Court gives final approval to the Settlement and, if there are any appeals, after the appeals are resolved in favor of the Settlement.

The Court will hold a hearing on December 15, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. to decide whether to approve the Settlement. If the Court approves the Settlement, after that, there may be appeals. It’s always uncertain whether these appeals can be resolved, and resolving them can take time, perhaps more than a year. Please be patient.
