Crest Whitening Emulsions False Advertising Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is currently investigating The Proctor & Gamble Company (P&G) over reports that they marketed their new Crest Whitening Emulsions teeth-whitening product using false and misleading claims. The National Advertising Division (NAD) of BBB National Programs recently concluded that P&G’s marketing for this product relied in large part on claims not supported by the available evidence. Upon review, the NAD report recommended that P&G discontinue each of the following unsupported claims:

  • “Best in class results”
  • “Starts working instantly”
  • “Get a whiter smile in seconds”
  • “Stays on 10x longer”
  • “Delivers 5x more active hydrogen peroxide compared to other whitening gels and pens”

In other instances, the report found that P&G failed to “clearly and conspicuously” specify that the main product of comparison for claims was produced by P&G itself, and not a competitor. The NAD report recommended that P&G clearly disclose in its marketing for Crest Whitening Emulsions that claims of “better” and “100% whiter results,” among others, are wholly unsupported unless in comparison to the performance of P&G’s own ARC Pen product.
