Young Living products are safe. A Prop 65 warning does not mean that a product is unsafe. The standards for Prop 65 are extremely stringent—much lower than those established by the FDA. Young Living never compromises on quality and has made a great effort to offer our customers the highest quality oil-infused products that they can feel good about using themselves, with their families, and in their homes.
Young Living’s products are run through a battery of tests in our own laboratory to ensure they meet our quality specifications. Remember that just because another brand doesn’t have a Prop 65 warning label, it does not automatically mean that the other brand is free of the substance or has lower levels. In fact, many other essential oil and supplement companies also carry Prop 65 warning labels.
In compliance with California’s Proposition 65 and its recent amendments, Young Living will provide a warning label on California shipments of eight products that have trace amounts of naturally occurring lead. The low levels found in each of these products are a result of natural occurrence from the soils where the plants that produced the oils and other ingredients included in these products were grown.
These products are safe for human consumption and meet all federal requirements. The trace amounts of naturally occurring lead in our oils—present in an amount several hundred times below the “no observable effect” level—have no actual risk or an extremely minimal risk when weighed against the wellness benefits of these products.
While Young Living is steadfast in the safety and quality of our products and in providing our customers with the highest quality products they can feel good about using themselves, with their families, and in their homes, we are also committed to being transparent about the cultivation, harvesting, production, distribution, and sale of our products. Young Living continues to ensure compliance with the laws and regulations of the states and countries in which it does business.
