COTY cosmetics brand COTy has been sued by an Ohio woman who claims the company’s cosmetics can trigger allergies in her.
Christine A. Hensley, of Columbus, Ohio, filed a lawsuit against COTyx, COTys parent company, in federal court on Thursday, saying that the makeup can worsen allergies in people with asthma and hay fever.
She told MLive/The Columbus Dispatch that she first noticed her allergies when she began wearing the COTyt cosmetics in September 2015.
Hensley said that when she first wore the makeup, she felt “very uneasy” and had to get help for her allergies.
She was also initially hesitant to try out the makeup.
However, after her daughter’s first experience with the Cotyt products, Hensleys husband noticed she was more comfortable with the makeup and started wearing it.
She said that her husband said he noticed the makeup on her face and that he noticed a “glow” around her eyes.
Hansley said she also noticed the Cottys product “smelled” a little different.
Hes a person with a history of allergies, Huesley said, and she was hesitant to purchase COTyd products because of that.
Huesley has had allergic reactions to the products for the past few years, but said that the latest case was the most severe.
She said that she and her husband have tested negative for asthma and that they did not experience any symptoms.
Hates the COTTys makeup, Hinsley said.
It smells like something you would eat.
Ive had hay fever and hay and it has not been good.
Hinsley and her family have been shopping for a replacement product, but they have not found anything that is similar to the Cotex cosmetics.
Cottys CEO Scott Sauer told MLW that the company has been in contact with Hensys family, and that she is “not disappointed” with the lawsuit.COTys makeup can cause allergies, according to the lawsuit, and its use is a violation of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) Cosmetic Ingredient Dispositions (CID) rule.
The CPSC says that COTyths products can cause “toxic reactions” in people who are sensitive to COTyrins and other ingredients, such as COTyanisole, which are ingredients in COTyss products.
The company claims that the Cottex products are safe, and they have been approved by the FDA for use in cosmetics.
Sauer told The Columbus Dispatch in an email that he could not comment on pending litigation.
Hussein Saderi, a law professor at the University of Cincinnati, told MLow that although the lawsuit was filed on behalf of the Hensyys, they have filed their own lawsuit against the company.
Saderi said that while there are several factors that could be involved in the lawsuit being dismissed, the company could have a case to prove that the ingredients in its products are harmful.
“There are several things in the case that I think are very relevant,” Saderisaid.
“The company is saying that Cotteys products cause allergic reactions in people and they can cause allergic symptoms.
I think the court will likely say that Cotty is not liable for the adverse reactions that occur.”
Hensy’s lawsuit also notes that Coty’s COTyon products contain other ingredients that are toxic to humans.SADERI said that because there are other lawsuits against Cotties products, and because the company is still developing new products, it may be difficult for the Hinsys to get a hold of one of its products.
“The lawsuit is a very important victory for consumers who may be affected by Cottyt products,” SADERIsaid.
He also said that consumers should not buy the CNTys makeup unless they are sure that they are not allergic to Cotys products.
According to a statement from COTya, which did not immediately respond to MLow’s request for comment, Cottyd products are approved for use by the CPSC for cosmetics, and are used to treat the symptoms of asthma, hay fever, hay rash, eczema, and other conditions.
