Proposition 65 (Prop 65) is an initiative by the state of California to address growing concerns about exposure to certain chemicals. Prop 65 requires the state to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, and/or other reproductive harm. This list currently includes 800+ chemicals and new ones are added each year. Prop 65 also requires businesses to notify California residents about potential exposure to these chemicals in products sold in California.
Powerstep believes our products are safe when used as directed. While we do our best to test, and/or require vendors to test, potentially affected components, we cannot claim that our products will not expose you to chemicals included in the Prop 65 list. In order to avoid substantial liabilities, and because there is no penalty for providing an unnecessary warning, Powerstep has chosen to be overly cautious by providing Prop 65 warnings on all our products.
