The beauty world is a big business, but it’s also one that’s often dominated by a handful of companies.
Huda is no exception.
With an impressive roster of well-known brands, including Sephora, Urban Decay, Ulta, MAC, and CoverGirl, the brand is a fixture in beauty-store shelves, often used by celebrities to hawk their products.
That said, the Huda beauty line is just one of a handful that is popular among consumers, which could be why the company is currently facing a new lawsuit from the U.S. government.
In a lawsuit filed on Monday, a federal appeals court in New York, U.K., found that the cosmetics giant violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act when it failed to properly register the Hudas products as foreign products.
Hudah is one of many beauty companies that are facing legal action from the Trump administration for not complying with the regulations.
According to the complaint, the Trump Department of Justice “has taken actions that have the potential to subject the cosmetics industry to a wide range of penalties.”
The cosmetics industry has come under increased scrutiny under the Trump Administration.
In May, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a crackdown on the cosmetics and beauty products industry, claiming it’s “the most corrupt industry in the country.”
The DOJ is seeking to shut down nearly 90 companies that sell cosmetics and other products that are derived from animal products, according to a May report by The Washington Post.
The crackdown has also led to a number of other changes to the cosmetics business, including stricter labeling and labeling standards, which are designed to ensure consumers are receiving the full product.
“It’s a very serious situation,” Dr. Lisa Krumholz, a dermatologist who runs the National Center for the Dermatology of the Children, told Fox News.
“This is not a cosmetic company that’s trying to make money.
They are trying to provide their patients with a safe product.”
The new lawsuit, which was filed in New Jersey, claims that Huda products “contain toxic chemicals and other potentially harmful ingredients” and that the company failed to register them with the U,S.
Department of Agriculture as required under the ForeignCorruptPowers Act.
According a statement from the company, “We strongly disagree with the government’s interpretation of its authority under the statute.”
While the company did register the products under the act, it failed, the lawsuit said.
The FDA has since issued a cease and desist order to Huda, and the company’s products are currently being taken off shelves.
