From the Organic Consumers Association  latest newsletter, about our
friends, Tom's of Maine.

Tom's of Maine, the popular maker of a variety of natural and organic body
care products, has agreed to be bought out by the Colgate-Palmolive Company
for $100 million. Although in past years Tom's of Maine has made negative
comments about Colgate's use of artificial ingredients in its toothpastes,
co-founder Tom Chappell claims "We have a commitment from Colgate that our
formulas will not be tampered with." Colgate says it can help Tom's of Maine
increase sales and distribution in the current fast-growing $3 billion US
market for natural oral-care and personal products.
