220 Labs Files Suit Against David Babali for WildAid

October 7, 2008

220 Laboratories, a Riverside, CA manufacturer of hair, skin and body products, has filed a complaint in the Superior Court of the State of California against David Babali for WildAid, LLC and others for misappropriation of trade secrets, fraud and breach-of-contract. 220 Laboratories contends it created the beauty products that the celebrity hairstylist launched earlier this year. According to the company’s attorney, 220 originated the unique blend of tropical ingredients being sold by Babali, and is the only source of a key ingredient (volcanic lava ash) used in the products. Also named in the suit are actress Kate Hudson, who played a role in the launch and marketing of the line, as well as Universal Packaging Systems, Inc. and Does 1-50.
