Rite Aid allegedly is misleading consumers to believe that their Renewal After Sunscreen contains aloe vera yet, that is not the case.
A class action was filed against Rite Aid for falsely advertising their Renewal After Sunscreen product after a test, conducted by a California law firm, revealed that there was no actual aloe vera in the ingredients. The sample of Renewal After Sun Gel contained no acemannan, a nutrient found in the inner part of aloe vera leaves which provides most of the benefits offered by the plant According to the International Aloe Science Council, “[p]roducts that do not contain Acemannan are not considered to be true aloe vera.”
The front label contains the words “with aloe” highlighted inside a green field. Below that appears a stylized representation of a green plant leaf. On the back of the bottle, the ingredient list shows “Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder” among several other non-aloe ingredients.
