I am totally organic in all food purchases, and I object to the misleading "organic" wording on the front of personal care products. It makes it almost impossible to make an informed choice, prevents stores form carrying more real "organic" products, and most of all it confuses and creates mistrust in the consumer of organic products.
I need to maintain my health, have skin issues, and need to be able to buy real completely "organic" products. The delivery of cancer causing ingredients and toxins has gone on too long, and we have a right to be informed how to avoid these effectively. With medical costs rising, it is irresponsible not to provide clear trustworthy organic labeling for completely organic products we use on our bodies. Companies hoping to cash in by using a few organic ingredient should not be allowed to use the lable organic.
Please correct this problem now for all of us.
