About California Proposition 65

California’s Proposition 65 entitles California consumers to special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm if those products expose consumers to such chemicals above certain threshold levels. We care about our customers’ safety and hope that the information below helps with your buying decisions.

PROPOSITION 65   WARNING: CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ONLY

Background

Proposition 65, the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, was enacted in November 1986. The Proposition was intended to protect California citizens and the State’s drinking water sources from chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and to inform citizens about exposures to such chemicals. This applies too water and consumer goods sold in California.

OEHHA is the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment that oversees Prop 65 issues.

Prop 65 requires the State of California to publish and maintain a list of chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. The list is updated periodically; the most recent list and other Prop 65 information is available on OEHHA’s website: http://www.oehha.ca.gov/prop65.html. OEHHA believes the substances on the list may be carcinogens and cause cancer. Carcinogens may cause birth defects or other reproductive harm are called reproductive toxicants. The list is extensive and changes since substances are added or removed from the list when more scientific testing is conducted.

Natural Ingredients

The list contains many substances that are naturally occurring in the environment or are now present in the environment, water supply or through increased industrial activity. Natural products such as natural foods, cosmetics, vitamins, minerals, herbs, and other supplements, are produced using ingredients and materials from the natural environment. Substances on the list may from time to time be present in many natural products. In addition, some of the ingredients found in natural products—such as the natural progesterone found in natural progesterone products—are in and of themselves identified as substances on the Prop 65 list.

However the study conducted that was reviewed by OEHHA was on synthetic progestin, not the USP micronized or  “natural” progesterone. These are different substances, which was not differentiated when it was listed on OEHHA. Since this in not a patented substance, there is no incentive to conduct research. All hormones are made from the plants wild yam or soy.
