A putative class motion criticism was submitted on Monday in the Northern District of California by Kacey Wilson from ColourPop Cosmetics, LLC. The complaint alleges that some of the defendant’s products and solutions include colour additives and substances that are dangerous to buyers.

Wilson asserts that the goods are “inherently dangerous” due to the fact they are produced employing damaging components.
