Henkel Corporation Case Settlement
Henkel Corporation Case Settles for $3,000
In May 2019, a case was settled with Henkel Corporation, acting through its Alterna Haircare Division, (Culver City, California) for selling in California a Hair Styling Product (aerosol and pump spray) category product. This product was manufactured by Alterna Professional Haircare prior to acquisition by Henkel Corporation. The Hair Styling Product contained concentrations of volatile organic compounds (VOC) that exceeded the standard specified in the Consumer Product Regulation, title 17, California Code of Regulations section 94509(a). Henkel Corporation paid $3,000 in emission violations. In order to come into compliance, Henkel Corporation has made modifications to the product to meet regulatory requirements for commerce in California.
