To whom it may concern:
As a consumer, I definitely feel like I am being mislead by personal care products, labeled "organic" that are made with petrochemical and synthetic ingredients. I am a large consumer of all organic products, both food and non-food because I am doing everything in my power to protect my fragile health. Organic foods have helped me tremdously and I am trusting in the government and its agencies to protect my right to purchase properly labeled food & non-food products. I am spending lots of extra money on these products because I believe in supporting the smaller/larger companies that are doing their best to support our health, the good old-fashioned, more natural way. I DO NOT want to support with my hard-earned money, other companies that are taking shortcuts and using harmful and toxic chemicals...and who are lying to me!!!! Please do not allow these lies to me and to all consumers that take great pride in their health and their freedom of choice, to continue...and do the right thing! We are trusting in you to protect us as that is what we are paying and asking you to do for us. In this case, please allow the companies that are going the extra mile to make natural and healthy products, which is much more expensive for them, to survive and thrive. It's the right thing to do!
Thank you for your time and consideration.
