[Editor’s Note: Article contains a curse word but more dangerously is the promotion of federal subsidizing of private industry as a solution to this potential crippling legislation. Private industry can educate the population better than the state. Subsidies will only bring regulation natural soap makers do not want. Fighting fascism with socialism won’t work either. What will lower the price of products available in the market place is a truly free enterprise system. Proverbs 31 entrepreneurs need to understand economics, small business, tax-strategies, free markets if they are going to protect their homes and better yet cause their households to flourish.]
Law makers want FDA to crack down on soap makers.
People who are trying to do good for their families and the planet by living a simple life based on traditional skills are facing yet another assault. Artisanal soap makers say new regulations, proposed by Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) and Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine), will put them out of business. Many soap makers are rural “kitchen table” operations that rely on the income to fund their simple living lifestyle. Some use milk from goats they raise and ingredients they harvest from the land.
The view of Sen. Feinstein and her corporate backers (listed below) is that the Personal Care Products Safety Act (Senate Bill S.1014) will make the world a safer place by scrutinizing “everything from shampoo and hair dye to deodorant and lotion.” She introduced the amendment to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, because of troubling negative health effects from chemicals used in personal care products. She says the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act should be more progressive like laws in Europe rather than antiquated US regulations in effect since the 1930s.
