Sunscreen SPF Misrepresentation – Class Action Investigation

Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of consumers who purchased certain brands of sun screen that, according to tests recently conducted by Consumer Reports, do not live up to their claimed SPF levels. SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, and refers to the lotion’s ability to screen or block out rays from the sun. It has been reported that Banana Boat Sport Spray claims an SPF of 50 plus, but only averaged an SPF 24 in tests, and that Yes To Cucumbers Natural claims an SPF 30 but averaged only 14 in tests.

If you have purchased Banana Boat Sport Spray with a 50 plus SPF or Yes To Cucumbers Natural with a SPF 30, please contact us to discuss this investigation.
