She said, "Obviously we want our customers to have the best experience with our brand. If an organization wants to bring awareness to their cause, I’m an easy target and our brand is an easy target, obviously because I get the different kind of attention than other brands would, and so it’s just sort of what happens. But if anyone who does any research understands -- and our customers are savvy enough to do research and understand -- the integrity of our products. We stand by our ingredients, the effectiveness of the products, and we're pretty optimistic that we're going to win every case." Jessica also said, "It's just a headline, really. Because when you look into any of it, they're baseless. There's no merit behind any of it."
