DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A federal class action lawsuit alleges that multi-level marketing company Rodan and Fields is including a chemical called “isopropyl cloprostenate” in its “Lash Boost” product without disclosing that product may cause harmful side effects in users.
In the suit obtained by BocaNewsNow.com, attorneys write: “Isopropyl cloprostenate is a synthetic prostaglandin analog. Prostaglandin analogs are widely used in the medical management of glaucoma to reduce elevated ocular pressure in patients with ocular hypertension. Hence, the side effects of prostaglandin analogs are well known to eye doctors.”

Rodan and Fields is promoted by more than 300,000 independent contractors nationwide who utilize social media and glowing reviews of their products — and lifestyles — in an effort to promote their products and sales. An inquiry posted by BocaNewsNow.com several days ago — before the suit was publicized — generated multiple emails from reps all stating “Rodan and Fields has changed my life.”
