Prop65 Product List
What is Proposition-65?
Proposition-65 is a shorthand term for The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (California Proposition-65). Part of Proposition-65 relates to a ban on discharging certain chemicals into drinking water sources, but the part that concerns you is the part on warning requirements.
Proposition-65 requires businesses selling products in California to give consumers a “clear and reasonable warning” that chemicals in their products contain substances known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm.
In summary, businesses are required to warn California consumers that the materials that make up their products contain substances or chemicals on California’s Proposition-65 chemical list, which is updated at least once per year.
What is the purpose of Proposition-65?
The idea behind the regulation is to ensure that California consumers are as informed as possible when buying goods. The state of California wants consumers to know up front that a product is made of potentially dangerous substances, as opposed to having consumers find out later.
Should products featuring warnings be avoided?
Nothing about our products has changed. The goal of Proposition-65 isn’t to prevent consumers from using certain goods. Instead, per California’s OEHHA, Proposition-65 is meant “to notify consumers that they are being exposed to chemicals that are known [to the state of California] to cause cancer and/or reproductive toxicity.” A prop65 warning does not mean that a product is in violation of any product-safety standards or requirements.

It’s important for you to be able to respond to inquiries by providing necessary information about these new labels and warnings.

What changes will our partners notice?
Products will start shipping with warnings on the packaging. These warnings will mention that the products inside the package are made of substances that contain chemicals on California’s Proposition-65 list. Labels will follow the Proposition-65 standards. The warnings will explain the risk of cancer, reproductive harm or both, depending on the chemical. You’ll also notice a similar warning appearing on our marketing materials and website going forward. These warnings will follow the same standards discussed above.
