First, I emailed the Associate Dean of Research at Princeton University to ask her. She asked me to send her where it was being claimed that Princeton University did this study. I sent her various websites as well as a Facebook search (Go onto Facebook and in the search box, type: Monat Princeton University – you’ll get hundreds of results of people making this claim).
And then, she emailed me back:
So, no – Princeton University did NOT do these studies (nor did their affiliates, nor does she know how this rumor started).
Then who did?
In my research, I heard of two possible candidates that may have done this testing:
1.) Princeton Consumer Research
Don’t be fooled, just because the name Princeton appears in their company name, neither company is affiliated with Princeton University.
I emailed both companies, asking if they could tell me if they did these clinical studies on Monat:
Princeton Consumer Research responded first:
Nope – it wasn’t them.
That left Tri-Princeton, I asked them the exact same question and I received this response:
My best guess is that Tri-Princeton did the research on this product and we’ll never be able to actually see the results of the study.
So there you have it, folks!
The claim:“Monat was studied/clinically proven by Princeton University (for 3 years)!”FALSE!
Update: As I was doing this research, I also emailed Monat’s Corporate office. I did hear back from them – and here’s their response:
