Deal Details

Last Edited by TattyBear March 1, 2015 at 07:24 AM
Arm and Hammer has received preliminary approval in their settlement for their class action where they were sued because their "Essentials Natural Deodorant" line of deodorant didn't contain natural ingredients - so, misleading.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE:
"Class Members of the Arm & Hammer deodorant class action settlement include consumers who purchased Arm & Hammer Essentials deodorant with a label containing the terms “Natural Deodorant” and “Natural Protection” in the United States. The deodorant must have been purchased for personal use and not for resale."

They are paying out up to $20 per claim.[/size] NO RECEIPT is required. Settlement is $4 per unit, up to 5 units without receipt. You only have to tell them what store you purchased the item(s) at, and it better be a store that carried the product because you are swearing under penalty of perjury what you are saying is true when you submit the claim form.

Final hearing is June 2015. Deadline is Sept 2015 to submit your claim online.

The claim form is here:

Trewin v. Church & Dwight Co. Inc., Case No 3:12-cv-01475, in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey

FYI for everyone: The FDA DOES NOT REGULATE the use of the word "NATURAL" in consumer food products (intentionally)

The term Natural is just a meaningless marketing adjective that's being exploited by manufacturers.
Read more about it here --> www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/2014/jul/03/natural-food-marketing-meaning-ban [theguardian.com]


Quote from http://www.fda.gov/aboutfda/transparency/basics/ucm214868.htm :
What is the meaning of 'natural' on the label of food?
From a food science perspective, it is difficult to define a food product that is 'natural' because the food has probably been processed and is no longer the product of the earth. That said, FDA has not developed a definition for use of the term natural or its derivatives. However, the agency has not objected to the use of the term if the food does not contain added color, artificial flavors, or synthetic substances.

I had to stop using this. It turned my pits a slight color of brown after continued use. I was told it was aluminum in the product that causes the discoloration of my skin

I actually did buy this stuff (didn't like it, never bought again) but it has been a few years and I can't remember where I bought it.

If you're submitting the form yourself, you don't fill out that part. The instruction above it says:

"If the Claimant is not the person completing this Claim Form, the following must be provided:"

There is no aluminum in this product. Aluminum is only used in antiperspirants. This is a deodorant. That said, I used to use the same deodorant for 15+ years, then started getting painful rashes and peeling skin on and off in my pits. I tried this for a "natural" solution. It seemed to work for a while so I stocked up when it was on sale ($0.99/stick). I started getting rashes again and stopped use. I haven't found a replacement yet.

Thankfully I work from home, so I don't smell too bad around others. Come summer, though, who knows. I refuse to use anything with aluminum because of the link to Alzheimer's, and most natural deodorants like Tom's seem to get pretty crap reviews. If anyone has a solution for sensitive skin like I apparently have, I'd be all ears.

Thanks also to OP for the heads up. I bought like 5 or 6 of these when I thought it was working. I still have them because I have no idea what to do with them. Maybe I can donate them somewhere. Will be nice to get my money back.

I use this one. It used to be organic and now it is just natural, so I am not sure what happened there. It works well unlike a lot of natural or organic deodorants.

You have a good amount of time to file a claim. If you feel like you have to be honest, just buy 5 of these at the store and you're legit.
