What is Prop 65?
California Proposition 65 is a labeling regulation. It primarily pertains to labeling requirements for products aimed at California consumers and should not be confused with any FDA or nationally applicable health and safety standard.
The Prop 65 regulation mandates that even if a product is deemed safe for consumption, it must carry a consumer warning. Notably, the threshold for triggering a warning label related to these substances in dietary supplements is extremely low.
For instance, even a minuscule amount of lead can prompt the inclusion of this warning.
Lead is a naturally occurring element found in the environment, present in our air, soil, water, and food crops. The threshold for this warning under Proposition 65 is significantly lower than the level associated with actual reproductive harm. Due to the stringent nature of Prop 65 warning thresholds, it's not unusual to encounter such warnings in various places across California, including restaurants, hotels, schools, grocery stores, hospitals, and more.
It's essential to clarify that Proposition 65 is specific to California and doesn't serve as a national standard concerning product health and safety. No other state enforces a labeling regulation of this kind, and products sold to residents in the other 49 states do not require this warning.
However, because we both ship to California and have stockists within the state or online sellers who serve California, we believe it's a prudent practice to include the warning on our products.
