Bridging the Gulf

Here's a question from a Beauty Goes Green Webinar attendee. He asked how the panel will deal with the emerging gulf between natural and organic certified cosmetic products. "Particularly, those companies like Nature's Gate or Hain Celestial that appear to be 'defaulting' to USDA guidelines originally established for food raises the bar for marketers trying to be natural or be able to carry the word organic on the front panel. In that the USDA doesn't 'oversee' the cosmetic industry, how does the panel think this should be reconciled?" Further "Does the panel think the industry should establish its own guildelines for the terms 'natural,' 'renewable' and 'green?'"
