Old Spice

Consumers who use Old Spice deodorant products are accusing the beauty and health giant of covering up "thousands" of reports of painful allergic reactions caused by using the products.

Old Spice is marketed to active men to mask their manly scent between showers.

In a class action lawsuit filed against Procter & Gamble, the makers of Old Spice, victims say the deodorant sticks caused "hundreds, if not thousands" of injuries ranging from rashes to 3rd degree chemical burns.

“Indeed, the problem is rampant, and rather than acknowledge the serious issue, Defendant is concealing it in order to continue selling the product and reaping windfall profits,” an attorney for the plaintiffs wrote in court documents.

“Deodorant is not intended to cause burning, rashes, irritation and other discomfort,” the documents noted.

The lawsuit includes a complaint by Rodney Colley, of Alexandria, Va., who says he suffered rashes and chemical burns after using the Old Spice Pure Sport High Endurance stick.

Photos included in the court documents shows the extent of Colley's armpit injuries.

According to the NY Daily News, court documents name 13 Old Spice deodorant products — including Swagger Classic Fresh and Pure Sport High Endurance brand — as potentially “defective” and dangerous products.

Court docs included comments from angry consumers who posted images online.

“My son has been using Old Spice Swagger Deodorant and has a rash in his armpit that is red and burning,” wrote one social media user.

"Shame on you Procter and Gamble for continuing to produce this product with all these reviews, and without warning!!!”

A Procter & Gamble spokesman told the Cincinnati Enquirer only “a small number of men” have suffered allergic reactions to its products, which the company attributes to "irritation due to alcohol sensitivity."

The lawsuit is asking for "at least $25,000 in damages for each Old Spice victim."

  • SameoleJ

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I have to be careful about the type of deodorant I use because I have sensitive skin but that natural stuff doesn't cut it because I sweat a lot and if I go to the gym a pre-workout application doesn't prevent my manscent from overpowering it.

    Ha, ha, ha!!

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    LOL!!! You know I had to do the product placement.

  • SummerBaby

    I bought my son one of those Old Spice holiday kits a couple of times. ?

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Have you ever tried the natural deodorants? I use Toms??

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Okay, I've got questions...
    1.) How long did he wear the deodorant? How soon did it burn?
    2.) What did he previously wear?
    3.) Did he continue to wear it after it burned?

    IJS, an underarm hairbump puts me in a pickle, so I'm not sure how long this burning took to occur.

  • SameoleJ

    Sean “Diddy” Combs has taken on a new job as the founder of a charter school in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood.

    Combs announced Monday that the Capital Preparatory Harlem Charter
    School will open in the fall. The school will be overseen by Capital
    Prep leader Steve Perry, who founded Capital Prep Magnet School in
    Hartford, Connecticut, in 2005.

    Combs and the board have hired Orlando, Florida-based educator Danita Jones as the principal of Capital Prep Harlem.

    Combs says creating the school is “a dream come true.”

    No, I've tried the clinical antiperspirant from dove and degree but I think you may be on to something with the Toms , I've heard good things bout it. My next stop was to inquire about botox to stop the sweating period.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    ubishu.
    ROFL!

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    Give Toms or one of the other natural brands a try?? It may not have the smell great effect that regular deodorants have, but then again all that perfume and additives is a part of the problem...You can also make your own...I used to using baking soda, tea tree oil, and something else? Just got lazy?? good luck??

  • stanley

    lol that shyt wasn't caused by alcohol. And unless they have a doctor examine this young man, how could they know what the allergic reaction was caused by? That statement is going come back and bite them in the ass in court if they wrong.

    OMG. I swear the same thing happened to my son!!!! I wrote Johnson and Johnson and told them about it they had me send them pictures of my sons armpits. He also used SWAGGER. I sent them his doctor bill they sent me a check for reimbursement along with some extra for pain and suffering. I believe it's just the gel deodorant by them that does that. SMH. My son couldn't play in at least 3 basketball games because he couldn't lift his arms.

    This has been happening for many years,my brother and brother in law had the same reaction. Took a year for their skin to heal.

  • Brian

    I used old spice ONCE and all the stuff in this article happened to me. I BEEN stopped using Old Spice. Even the body wash just makes me itch!

  • JazzyPudding

    Yeah, this is a problem. My 14 year old uses it mainly because of the various scents available. He had chemical burns once and because he plays sports we kinda weren't sure what was going on but we used neosporin and it healed and I told him to throw away the deoderant. And then I saw the news footage one night. Funny thing the very next morning my son came to me again but this time I knew the culprit. SMH.
