Supergoop SPF Mislabeling Lawsuit

Supergoop SPF Mislabeling Lawsuit

Lowey Dannenberg, P.C. Files Suit Concerning
Mislabeling of Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreens

Case Overview

On December 28, 2023, Lowey Dannenberg P.C. filed a class action lawsuit against Supergoop, LLC, challenging the integrity of the product labeling of Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreens. Filed in the Southern District of New York, the lawsuit alleges that Supergoop’s Unseen Face and Body Sunscreens, which are prominently marketed as having a sun protection factor (“SPF”) of 40, do not live up to these claims. Independent testing cited in the complaint reveals that the actual SPF values are significantly lower, with the Unseen Face Sunscreen having an SPF of 23 and the Unseen Body Sunscreen having an SPF of 20.

Implications of Mislabeling

This discrepancy is not just a minor oversight; it is a serious concern for consumers who rely on the SPF rating to protect their skin from harmful UV rays. The American Academy of Dermatology has set a benchmark, recommending sunscreens with a minimum SPF of 30 for adequate protection. The lawsuit alleges that Supergoop’s misrepresentation of the Unseen Sunscreens as SPF 40 violate state consumer protection and express warranty laws.
