EOS lip balm can damage skin, class action lawsuit alleges https://t.co/V5allTWyhY— TIME.com (@TIME) January 13, 2016
EOS is a lip balm brand famously used by the legendary Ms. Britney Spears and Princess Kim Kardashian. Their products have been featured in several music videos, including Miley Cyrus' infamous "We Can't Stop," which is nothing compared to "BB Talk."
Now a consumer named Rachel Cronin claims that the balms left her lips feeling dryer than the Sahara Desert but she continued using them. Within 10 days, her lips were chapped, cracked, bloody and swollen. She said that the balms severely damaged her skin.
She will file a lawsuit with the help of lawyer Mark Geragos, but EOS is not having it.
They released a statement: "We firmly believe this lawsuit is without merit. Our products are made with the highest quality ingredients and meet or exceed all safety and quality standards set out by our industry and validated by rigorous testing conducted by an independent lab. The health and well-being of our customers is our top priority and millions of satisfied customers use our products every day, many of whom take the time to share their experiences with us."
