Update: Investigation Closed
Thank you to everyone who contacted us regarding Aquaphor and Eucerin baby creams. Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are no longer investigating this matter. Initially, the attorneys believed that Eucerin and Aquaphor were responsible for jacking up the prices of their baby creams, only to learn that this was actually the work of the retailers themselves. They went on to try building a case against Target but, to our knowledge, a lawsuit was never filed.
If you’re uncertain about your rights or whether you’re covered by any pending litigation, we urge you to contact an attorney in your area.

- How Could a Class Action Lawsuit Help?
- A class action lawsuit could help consumers get money back if they overpaid for these products. It could also hold the manufacturers accountable for possibly misrepresenting their products.
If you purchased Aquaphor baby healing ointment or Eucerin baby eczema relief cream, you may have been duped into paying more than you should have.
Attorneys have reason to believe that the “baby” creams have the exact same ingredients as the adult versions – but are sold at a higher price point – meaning new parents are being duped into paying more for the same product. Now, the attorneys are looking into whether a class action lawsuit can be filed to help people get their money back.
Tell Me More…
It is believed that the only difference between the Aquaphor “baby” healing ointment and Eucerin “baby” eczema relief cream and their adult counterparts is the word “baby” printed on the front of the products. Not only do they have the same amount of the same active ingredient, they also have the same inactive ingredients, pictures show. Below are images of the products and their ingredient lists.
Attorneys believe that by using the term “baby” on the front of the products, the manufacturers are deceiving new parents into believing the products are different from the adult versions. The issue here is that the “baby” products are reportedly priced approximately 60 to 80 cents higher than the “adult” versions.
How a Class Action Lawsuit Can Help
If a class action lawsuit can be filed and is successful, consumers may be able to recover the difference between the cost of the “baby” products they purchased and their adult equivalents. Furthermore, a judge could order that the manufacturers change the way they market their products.
