Procter & Gamble’s Response to the Old Spice Deodorant Chemical Burns Lawsuit
While complaints are arising across the country, the makers of the potentially harmful product Old Spice, Proctor & Gamble, claim that these kinds of reactions are very rare.
However, reviews of the product published by consumers online reveal that many people who use Old Spice are often not happy with the outcome.
There are complaints on the Consumer Affairs web site ranging back to 2012 with individuals saying they had experienced burns and severe irritation on their skin as a result of using certain Old Spice deodorants.
“After using Red Zone Old Spice Swagger on one application, I began to experience intense burning,” writes one man. “I have red burns under my arms and currently, I cannot wear any deodorant of any kind due to the pain and irritation until my underarm skin heals. I cannot tolerate wearing any deodorant until my skin completely heals from the burn which occurred after using Old Spice Swagger.”
“After using the deodorant a couple of times, I experienced a slight burning throughout the day,” writes another man in 2012. “After I recently used it (9/14), I noticed a red ring around my armpits. Today (9/17), they have gotten so bad that it looks like they are starting to puss. It is the most uncomfortable pain and nothing that I do will help ease it. I have yet to go to the doctor, but I intend to go this following Monday. This is possibly the worst deodorant I have ever bought.”
According to news sources at ABC, Procter and Gamble is said to have released the following statement in light of this developing information:
“The safety of the men who use Old Spice is the foundation of everything we do. We go to great lengths to ensure our products are safe to use, and tens of millions of men use this product with confidence and without incident every year,” the spokesperson said.
