Bubbling organic war

After giving a warning to several natural personal care products manufacturers on their supposed organic labeling misdemeanor, organic soap manufacturer Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps filed a suit last week against the said manufacturers the company calls organic cheaters.

The suit also included organic certification group ECOCERT and the newly formed OASIS.

Hain Celestial, Kiss my Face and Nature’s Gate all probably wanted to say kiss my…. in a mild-mannered way but released a mild-mannered statement instead in response to the suit’s allegations.

As long as there’s no harmonized organic labeling rules, I bet these kind of lawsuits will continue to proliferate. The organic personal care market is a money-growing industry after all.
