Are AQUALAB products safe?

What is Prop 65?

In 1986, California voters approved an initiative to help them make informed decisions about the products they buy. That initiative became known as Proposition 65. Proposition 65 requires the state of California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer/ reproductive harm. You can learn more about Prop 65 here.  

Why do AQUALAB products have a Prop 65 warning?

AQUALAB is required by California law to post a warning on any product that might be sold in California if it contains or might contain one of the more than 900 chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and/or reproductive harm. Because consumers learn about our products from our website, we are required to post these warnings on the product web pages as well. California residents are used to seeing these notifications on many products, including household items, electrical wires, electronics, jewelry, dishes, flashlights, cosmetics, skincare products, and much more. People who live outside the state of California may be surprised and alarmed by these notifications. It is important to know that nearly all electronic products require the notification label even though the chemicals involved may only be potentially harmful when eaten in large quantities.  

Are AQUALAB products safe?

A Prop 65 warning does not necessarily mean a product is in violation of any product safety standards or requirements. Because AQUALAB sources manufacturing materials from other suppliers, we provide the warning in order to acknowledge that AQUALAB products may contain one or more of the chemicals listed. However, it’s likely that those chemicals are in such small amounts that they fall into the no-significant-risk category. To be safe and compliant, we have elected to label all product web pages and packaging with this warning.
