British woman sues deo firm after suffering burnsPublished On: Sun, Aug 5th, 2012 | Social Health | By BioNews
A 34-year-old British woman is taking legal action after an anti-perspirant deodorant left her with a burnt skin.
Stacey Robinson, of Shoreditch, east London, suffered agonising stinging the first time she used the deodorant, The Sun reported.
Though she washed off the spray, which claimed to be for sensitive skin types and to keep skin healthy, the pain persisted.
Robinson said she has never suffered an allergic reaction to a deodorant.
She went to a doctor, who said they look like “second-degree chemical type burns”.
The spray was criticised by the Advertising Standards Authority in March for a “misleading” ad that implied a bath gel in its range “contained no man-made chemicals”.
