FTC SENDS REFUND CHECKS TO PEOPLE WHO BOUGHT "BODY SLIMMING" SKIN CREAMS
In July 2015, the Federal Trade Commission mailed 10,620 refund checks to people who bought skin creams that boasted body slimming capabilities. L’Occitane Inc. claimed that Almond Beautiful Shape could trim 1.3 inches in just 4 weeks, and that Almond Shaping Delight would visibly refine and reshape the silhouette. But the FTC says the company didn’t have scientific evidence to back up its claims.
In July 2016, the FTC mailed an additional I2,773 checks totaling $75,976.38.
