If You Bought Mario Badescu Healing Cream or Control Cream
At Any Time Since February 15, 2009
You Could Get One or Two $45 Certificates From A Proposed
Class Action Settlement
There is a proposed Settlement in a class action lawsuit that alleges that Mario Badescu Skin Care, Inc. violated state and federal laws regarding the marketing and sale of its Healing Cream and Control Cream products by failing to disclose all of their ingredients. Mario Badescu denies any liability in this matter. The Court did not rule in favor of either party. Instead, the parties agreed to a proposed Settlement in order to avoid the expense and risks of continuing the lawsuit.
Anyone who bought Mario Badescu Healing Cream or Control Cream since February 15, 2009 is included in the proposed Settlement.
If you are eligible, you may be entitled to one or two $45 Certificates that you can use off of any Mario Badescu product or at the Mario Badescu spa in New York City.
The proposed Settlement will provide for the (1) cost of the Certificates issued to Class Members, (2) the costs of notice and administration, (3) a special service payment to Class Representatives, and (4) attorneys’ fees and costs. The Class Counsel will be seeking $1,200,000 for their fees and costs. Mario Badescu has also agreed to implement certain changes in connection with labeling of Healing Cream and Control Cream.
Your legal rights are affected whether you act or not. Read the notice carefully because it explains decisions you must make and actions you must take now.
Please be advised that the Judgment filed by court on May 13, 2014 approving the Class Action Settlement is currently on appeal. Accordingly, pursuant to court order, no Certificates will be distributed until the appeal is resolved.
