You may have seen warning labels on some of our products sold in California. These labels were added to ensure compliance with California’s Proposition 65. Please read below for more information about Prop 65 and the testing and safety of our products.
What is Prop 65?
In 1986, California voters approved an initiative called the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act - better known as Proposition 65. This proposition requires companies to place warning labels on products containing certain levels of substances. Each year a list of these substances is updated and published. The list has grown to include over 800 substances and includes additives or ingredients in pesticides, common household products, food, drugs, dyes, solvents, and heavy metals.
Does the Prop 65 label mean these products are unsafe?
No. Our products are tested and safe. We also choose manufacturers and suppliers who are compliant with the FDA regulations and are issued a Certificate of Analysis to confirm composition.
Do I have any reason to be concerned?
You should always be aware of product warnings and your exposure to toxic chemicals and their impact on your health. As the State of California’s own Prop 65 website states, “A Proposition 65 warning does not necessarily mean a product is in violation of any product-safety standards and requirements.”
Keep in mind that a warning label does not automatically mean the product is unsafe to use.
