In 2011 and 2012, the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) published notices adding several ingredients used in cosmetics to the list of chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity.

They include:

Titanium Dioxide, Benzophenone, Cocamide Diethanolamine, Diethanolamine and 2-methylimidazole.

Since February 2013, plaintiffs' attorneys have sent notices of violation to almost 200 manufacturers, distributors and retailers of cosmetics and personal care products. Since there are no safe harbors for exposure levels, many companies are looking for answers about how to comply with Prop 65 and respond to Notices of violations, which many have already received.

Find out from ICMAD's experts what Prop 65 means for your company and what you can do about it!
