For more information about health claims that are too good to be true, read Snake Oil for the 21st Century. LOreal has sold Genifique at Lancome counters in department stores and beauty specialty shops nationwide since February 2009, charging up to $132. It has sold Youth Code at major retail stores nationally for $25 since November 2010. Under the proposed administrative settlement, which is being opened for public comment, LOreal would be prohibited from advertising that any Lancome or LOreal Paris facial skincare product targets or boosts the activity of genes to make skin look or act younger, or respond five times faster to aggressors such as stress, fatigue, and aging, unless the company has substantiating scientific evidence, the FTC said. It also would be barred from misrepresenting the results of any test or study. The FTCs settlement came just two weeks after the agency testified before a U.S. Senate subcommittee about widespread deceptive advertising for weight-loss products .
