MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- What is the purpose of this Notice? A settlement ("Settlement") has beenproposed in a class action lawsuit pending in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California ("Court") titled In re: The Honest Company, Inc., Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) Marketing & Sales Practices Litigation,
What is the Action about? The Action was filed against The Honest Company, Inc. ("Honest") by several consumers alleging Honest engaged in unfair and deceptive marketing and advertising by referring to the Honest multi-surface cleaner (regular and concentrate), dish soap (regular and concentrate, all scents) and laundry detergent (collectively "Products") as being "free" of sodium lauryl sulfate or SLS, when they allegedly contained SLS. Honest denies wrongdoing and liability and both sides disagree on how much, if anything, the Class could have recovered after trial. The Court has not decided which side is right. But both sides have agreed to settle the case and provide certain benefits to Honest customers in order to avoid the costs of continued litigation.
Am I a Class Member? You are a "Class Member" if you are a U.S. resident who purchased and did not return Honest multi-surface cleaner (regular and concentrate), dish soap (regular and concentrate, all scents) and laundry detergent between January 17, 2012 and August 2, 2017.

If you are a Class Member, you are eligible to receive a share of the Settlement Amount, in either your choice of U.S. Dollars or a Credit for a future purchase at Honest.com. The amount you will recover will depend on the amount you paid for the Products and the number of timely and valid claims submitted by other Class Members.
How do I receive a Settlement Award? To receive a Settlement award you must timely complete and submit a valid Claim Form. A Claim Form is available on the Internet at the Settlement Website www.slssettlement.com. The deadline to submit a Claim Form is November 15, 2017.
