Dry Shampoo Class Action

Unilever filed a recall for more than 1.5 million dry shampoo products due to the detection of a cancer-causing chemical.

About the Class Action and Compensation

Health Canada issued a recall in October 2022 for approximately 1.5 million dry shampoo products under popular drugstore brands like Dove, Bed Head TIGI and Tresemmé following the detection of the chemical benzene. Unilever has said that the recall is cautious in nature. 

Benzene is a carcinogen and in cases of prolonged or large amounts of exposure, it can lead to cancers like leukemia or other life-threatening blood disorders. 

Health Canada has already reported more than 100 inquiries, incidents and injuries. Most of the incidents and injuries have involved irritation and allergic reactions following the use of the affected dry shampoo products.

Frequently Asked Questions

A class action is a lawsuit which provides a method for a large group of people with common claims to come together to advance one claim on behalf of the group. Class actions are more efficient and cost-effective and allow for groups of people with common claims to gain access to the legal system and seek justice on their behalf.

A certification motion is where the court determines whether an action can be pursued as a class action. The court considers factors such as whether the claims of the class members raise common legal and/or factual issues and whether a class action is the preferable method of pursuing the claims (as opposed to individual actions).
