For California Customers: Under California's Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, better known as OEHHA Prop 65, we are required to place a warning to this product since the OEHHA thinks that crystalline silica may cause cancer if it's chronically inhaled. Once silica is incorporated into a cosmetic product and can not be be inhaled anymore, it is no longer considered cancerous.
