VENTURA, Calif., Jan. 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Athena Cosmetics, Inc. (parent company to RevitaLash® Cosmetics) is pleased to report that, in a recent counterfeit lawsuit, a federal jury has ruled unanimously in its favor.
The lawsuit (against AMN Distribution, Inc. and Moishe Newman) alleged that the Defendants sold counterfeit goods, infringing on the RevitaLash® brand’s registered trademarks, and breached a previous settlement agreement signed in 2019. The Defendants own and operate a website called BrushExpress as well as numerous stores on eBay and other online marketplaces, under various aliases.
“We will do everything in our power to protect the integrity of the RevitaLash brand name and, most importantly, the safety of our customers,” says Michael Brinkenhoff, M.D., RevitaLash Cosmetics’ CEO and Founder.

We will spare no expense when it comes to protecting our brand reputation, which we have worked 15 years to establish, and this victory serves as that message.”
