California Residents & Prop 65
California consumers understand that California’s Proposition 65 entitles them to special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Some of our products such as wallets, handbags, purses, backpacks, clutches, belts, clothing, jewelry or shoes may have these warnings.
While this shouldn’t cause any harm, or worry anyone, we like to keep everyone aware.
The items, if any, may contain very small, trace amounts of ingredients. Many times, the risk of harm was found only in studies where massive amounts of the ingredient were given to the test subject. It’s totally ok to be cautious!
You don't need to overly worry about the Prop 65 label, which can often times be needlessly alarming.
So, In accordance with Proposition 65, we issue the following warning to our California customers:
WARNING: Some Products from My Violet from time to time may contain chemicals that are known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm and may be included on the Proposition 65 chemical list. If you need additional information to make your purchase, please email us at: email@example.com. We will respond to you ASAP to provide you with the information we possess about the materials within our products.
For more information on Proposition 65, please check out the CA.gov’s FAQ: https://www.p65warnings.ca.gov/about/frequently-asked-questions
