Proposition 65

What is Prop 65?

In 1986, California voters approved the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act (known as “Proposition 65”). Proposition 65 is a "Right to Know" statute; its purpose is to make sure people are aware, before they purchase, that the product they come into contact with could expose them to chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

The State of California has listed over 900 chemicals that must be disclosed under Prop 65. The list, which is updated annually, includes a wide variety of chemicals that can be found in many consumer products.

Why is there a warning label on my T3 box?

T3 provides the warning label to inform consumers that the product contains chemicals on the State of California’s Prop 65 list. For example, some T3 products carry the Prop 65 label because they include components made with brass, which contains small but detectible amounts of lead—an element included on the Prop 65 chemical list. Please see our Hot Rollers or Beauty Showers for more information regarding the applicability of Prop 65 to specific T3 products.

All T3 products meet or exceed the requirements of applicable product performance and safety industry standards.

I don’t live in California. Why does my T3 product have this label?

T3 products are sold internationally. It would be considerably complex to determine which products will be ultimately sold or brought into California. Therefore, to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements, we have decided to include these warnings on applicable products, regardless of where they might be purchased or sold.

Where can I find more information about Prop 65?

The State of California provides Proposition 65 information on the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment website.
