Private activism on the meaning of organic

Whole Foods will soon require "organic" in the personal care aisles to mean something sort of like what it means in the food aisles. Story from the NYT.

As a biochemist by education, I'm not in the habit of consuming much that's inorganic (other than water) in the first place. So does that mean that "organic" has an inapt, appropriated meaning that might tend to deceive the consumer who has passed high school chemistry?
