America’s most popular facial scrub is under fire as a lawsuit claims dermatologists do not recommend it.

St Ives apricot scrub can be found in drugstores across the United States, and on the shelves of celebrities such as Gigi Hadid.

Fueling its popularity, the distinct white tube bears the words ‘dermatologist tested’.

However, two women have filed a $5 million lawsuit against the manufacturer Unilever claiming the product has not passed tests by dermatologists, and would not be recommended by skincare professionals.
