The short answer: yes.
The warning on your product is in regards to a California law - Prop 65. Prop 65 is a California law requires that consumers in California get this warning. But, it's not logistically feasible for us to put a warning only on products that someone in California buys, versus in one of the other 49 states, as we ship to all 50 states. So we put the warning on certain products that we sell nationwide, even though that’s not required under the law. If you live outside of California and got this warning, don't fret!
The long answer:
The specific California law that requires this warning is called Proposition 65 (Prop 65). Under Prop 65, the State of California maintains a list of chemicals known to the state to potentially cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. The current list has nearly 900 chemicals! And it is not uncommon for certain Prop 65-listed chemicals, such as naturally-occurring heavy metals found in soils and the ocean, to be absorbed by plants and ultimately end up in all-natural, plant-based food, supplements, and cosmetic ingredients. Because our products include all-natural, plant-based ingredients that might include detectable levels of naturally-occurring heavy metals, we’re required to provide a Prop 65 warning on certain Love Wellness products.
We are not alone in our trying to comply with the sweeping Prop 65. In California, these warnings are found in restaurants, grocery stores, nutritional supplement shops, coffee shops, gyms, and even hospitals, and are placed on products ranging from snacks and nutritional supplements to cosmetics, just to name a few.
