Supplements to Eliminate Gray Hair Not Supported by Science, Says FTC
GetAwayGrey was promoted with statements such as "Watch your grey go away! Now, grey hair can be stopped and reversed . . . We stop grey hair by using a vitamin that includes the Catalase enzyme. Just two vitamin pills a day can bring back your natural hair color."
The Rise-N-Shine product line, which includes a supplement as well as a shampoo and conditioner, was promoted with testimonials such as "New & Improved! Now With 50% More Catalase . . . . 'After 3 months of Go Away Gray, I can see white roots coming in darker. I'm very impressed!' — D. Heindl."
The supplements were sold online and in retail stores, including CVS and Walgreens.
The settlement prohibits the marketers from making these types of claims unless they can support them with reliable scientific evidence. A $1,817,939 judgement against GetAwayGrey and a $2 million judgement against Rise-N-Shine have been suspended due to the companies' financial status.
