October 2013: A federal judge preliminarily approved a $6.5 million settlement of a class-action lawsuit filed against Todd Christopher International, Inc. d/b/a Vogue International, the maker of Organix skin and hair care products. The complaint alleges that the company falsely markets products as organic when, in reality, most of the ingredients are not organic. According to the settlement terms, the company will not manufacture products under the Organix brand name or promote any product as “organic” unless at least 70% of its ingredients are organic. In addition, class members who submit valid claims are eligible for a $4 refund (for a maximum of 7 products, or $28 per class member). (Gollogher, et al. v.
