Just For Men Lawsuits Claim Men Suffer Chemical Burns, Facial Swelling, Blisters And Other Allergic Reactions After Using The Men’s Hair Dye Product.
Just For Men Lawsuits: Nearly four years after ConsumerAffairs.com began reporting complaints about Just For Men, the consumer advocacy organization continues to receive claims of chemical burns, facial swelling, painful blisters and other injuries from men who use the hair and beard dye product. The allergic reactions have led hundreds of men nationwide to file Just For Men lawsuits alleging Combe Inc., the product’s manufacturer, and its affiliates, failed to warn consumers about the health risks associated with their products.

One Just For Men consumer commented on ConsumerAffairs.com on May 9 that he applied Just for Men beard color to his goatee and that same night, his face and neck started itching. The next morning, he had blisters, redness, burning and itching. In a May 3 post, another man said he spot tested Just For Men on his chin with no adverse effects. However, after the full application to his beard and mustache, he began feeling irritation. Over the next week, his face, lip, neck and throat swelled to the point that he sought medical attention twice during that same week. On May 19, one man commented that he had been using Just For Men for mustache and beard for over two years with no problems. However, after using the product earlier this month, he began to have weeping sores, redness, itching and swelling. In an attempt to alleviate the aggravation, the man said he shaved his beard, painful as it was, and it felt as if his “skin was on fire.”

Just For Men has been sold for nearly 30 years and used by men to cover gray in their hair, mustache and beard. Many men say they have used the product periodically in the past, but only recently started suffering severe allergic reactions, such as burns and blistering. Just For Men lawsuits claim the chemical, p-Phenylenediamine (PPD), was added to the Just For Men formula and is the possible cause of the problems. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says that short-term exposure to high levels of PPD may cause severe dermatitis, renal failure, vitiligo, convulsions, eye irritation, tremors, and other health conditions.

The federal Just For Men lawsuit complaints and state Just For Men lawsuit complaints say the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has listed PPD as a strong substance that has significant potential for causing hypersensitivity. To further the point, the Just For Men lawsuits cite a study conducted by the Cleveland Clinic in 2001 that found African American men have a higher sensitivity rate to PPD (21.2 percent) compared to Caucasians (4.2 percent). The plaintiffs contend that despite other studies and complaints of allergic reactions of African American males to Just For Men products, Combe Inc. continued to aggressively target the African American community in their marketing and advertising campaign.
