Prop 65

Prop 65 is short for "Proposition 65." Prop 65 is an initiative that California voters approved in 1986 to address growing concerns regarding exposure to toxic chemicals. Prop 65 requires California to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects for California consumers, and for businesses to display a warning to California consumers. 

What does this have to do with my listing on Zentail?

 In order to stay compliant with State law in California, you will have to display what chemicals you may have in the product you are selling so that California consumers receive the warning. In Zentail you can display a Prop 65 warning so that your product displays the warning across all the channels you are selling on.
