LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – A Califonia woman is suing Dennis Gross Cosmetology LLC and Dennis Gross Dermatology LLC, alleging their line of collagen products does not contain collagen.
Mocha Gunaratna filed a class action lawsuit March 10 in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against Dennis Gross Cosmetology LLC and Dennis Gross Dermatology LLC of New York on her behalf and all others who have purchased their “collagen products.”
Gunaratna claims she bought the C + Collagen Serum Products and C + Collagen Deep Cream at a Sephora store located at The Grove in Los Angeles for approximately $75 each, trusting the labels that were presented on the packaging of the products were as they stated.
Gunaratna alleges the Dennis Gross C + Collagen product line does not have any collagen in it at all. Dennis Gross claims these products contain collagen that is presented on the front of all products in the Dennis Gross C + Collagen product line, which Gunaratna alleges are misleading and deceptive. The ingredients they do offer are Vitamin C and “Calogen Amino Acids,” which are not actual collagen, according to the documents provided to the court. She claims the marketer has taken advantage of customers looking to buy collagen-infused products.
Gunaratna is seeking compensation for her losses, court and attorney costs, and special damages for the alleged Violation of California Consumers Legal Remedies Act, false advertising, unfair competition, breach of warranties, and unjust enrichment. She is represented by Ryan Clarkson, Matthew Theriault and Celine Cohan of Clarkson Law firm of Los Angeles.
