Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps is a family owned soap company popular for its all organic ingredients and the health benefits they have to offer. They began manufacturing and selling soap under their current name in 1948, though the legacy and development of the company can be traced all the way back to 1858. But not only does this company sell organics, they actively fight for them. They actively support and help fund several movements including re-commercializing industrial hemp, integrity in organic labeling, animal rights, and GMO labeling.
So is it any wonder they would find themselves being harassed by the FDA?
Dr. Bronner’s received a letter from the FDA earlier this year declaring that their product Magic “All-One!” Fresh-Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil to be an “unapproved drug”. The letter from the FDA sent on July 8th, 2014 states:
