All One God Faith, maker's of Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap
, are suing thirteen cosmetic brands
for using the term "organic" on products that include petroleum-based ingredients. And now, Olympic gold medalist Mark Spitz is suing them
for using his name on their unique bottle labels
(where he appears alongside folks like Jesus, Mohammed and Einstein).
They were most recently in the news defending Germs drummer Don Bolles after he was wrongly arrested
when his bottle of Dr. Bronners tested a false positive for GHB. Bolles got off
, but the faulty test - which returned a false positive for actual soaps (made from saponified oil) but not for detergent-based cleaners - was perhaps the germ of an idea to fight for more accurate labels on body care products.
