MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida, Miami Division announced its ruling on MONAT Global Corp’s (MONAT) motion to dismiss a class action lawsuit against the company, granting a partial victory.
Judge Darrin P. Gayles struck down a claim from the plaintiffs for injunctive relief. Though Judge Gayles denied MONAT’s motion to dismiss the case altogether, he did acknowledge the “plaintiffs might have a difficult time proving that the Products, and not a pre-existing medical condition or simple aging, caused their injuries.”
Thomas J. Hoolihan, Senior Vice President and Chief Legal Officer, MONAT, stated: “We are happy that Judge Gayles granted part of our motion to dismiss. This is just a small part of a lengthy legal process. We look forward to taking discovery, including depositions of each of the plaintiffs, to determine the real cause of their claimed reactions. We are confident that those depositions, and other discovery, will confirm what we already know: MONAT products are dermatologist-tested, made with the highest quality ingredients, meet or exceed all safety and quality standards set by our industry, and are validated by rigorous safety testing conducted by independent labs.”
Product safety is MONAT’s top priority. The company invests millions of dollars in research and conducts thousands of tests each year to ensure MONAT products meet the highest standards for quality, safety and performance. For instance, to ensure the safety and efficacy of MONAT’s products, the company uses one of the world’s leading independent clinical testing labs, Kosmoscience Ciência & Tecnologia Cosmética Ltda, an ISO 17025-certified laboratory that specializes in skin and haircare product testing.
Most recently, in June 2018, MONAT announced the results of additional allergy tests from Allergisa, an internationally renowned testing facility, on its products. The test results from Allergisa found that MONAT premium haircare products are safe on all skin types for their intended cosmetic purpose: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20180621005905/en/Monat-Global-Products-Clinically-Proven-Dermatologically-Safe.
