Since 2016, Unilever has been fighting a lawsuit filed against their St. Ives Apricot Scrub for the possibility of skin damage that could allegedly be caused by the use of crushed walnut shells in the product. Unilever dismisses the claims of these possible “micro-tears” of the skin as “junk science”, as it asks a California court for a summary judgement in the matter. Will the suit be dismissed, or will the court find that the product causes an “unreasonable safety hazard”? Find out more about the details of the suit in this informative Rose Sheet article.
