Proposición 65 Advertencia para consumidores en CaliforniaADVERTENCIA: Consumir este producto puede exponerte al plomo, que el Estado de California sabe que causa defectos de nacimiento u otros daños reproductivos. Para obtener más información, visita www.P65Warnings.ca.gov/food.In 1986, the State of California adopted Proposition 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, which applies not only to water but also extends to many other businesses as it covers heavy metals, chemicals, and other elements that are found in trace amounts in countless consumer products, including various foods, jewelry, fish, clothing and glassware (you will likely see the same notice posted in many building lobbies, grocery stores, parking lots and shopping malls located throughout California).

The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) oversees Proposition 65 issues. Proposition 65 requires the State of California to publish and maintain a list of chemicals known to the state to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. The list is updated periodically, and the most recent list and other Proposition 65 information are available on OEHHA’s website, oehha.ca.gov/prop65.html.

Substances on the list that are believed to cause cancer are called carcinogens; those that are believed to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm are called reproductive toxicants. Currently, there are nearly 800 substances on the list. Substances can be added to or removed from the list by various mechanisms, such as a declaration by an authoritative body or by scientific testing.

Many of the substances on the list, like the lead listed above, are naturally occurring in the environment and are exempt at those levels from Proposition 65. However, it is very difficult to prove that the substances are naturally occurring. Some of these substances may accumulate in varying amounts, at different times, in different plants or soils, throughout the supply chain. Products with naturally derived ingredients — including herbs, vitamins, minerals and other supplements, as well as many foods and cosmetics — are produced using ingredients and materials from the natural environment. Because of this, it is possible that some of the substances on the list may from time to time be present in these products with naturally derived ingredients.

Therefore, even though the substance levels would be far below federal safety regulations, Arbonne is including this warning to provide the notice required by the parameters of Proposition 65.
