From the Proposition 65 Website:
“Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals.”
With over 900 chemicals on the list, it is inevitable that some adult manufacturers are indeed still utilising some of these chemicals in the manufacture, processing or resultant materials contained in their products. Many of the products which are required to warn consumers in California under Proposition 65 may contain very small levels or amounts of the identified chemicals, however assessment and analysis of these levels is beyond the scope of our duty as a retailer.
While not currently required under Australian Law to disclose the possible use of these listed materials in products we sell, we at Black Knight Erotica are continually dedicated to providing all the information we can regarding the materials of the products we stock, in order to allow our customers to make informed choices about their purchase.
While we may continue to stock products that have been identified or not yet identified as containing these harmful chemicals, we will however make these listed products known to our customers on our website using the Prop 65 warning attribute under the “Additional Details” tab on our individual product pages.
To find out if the product you are interested in has been listed as a Prop 65 item, do the following on the website:
- Visit the products’ individual product page by clicking or tapping on it from the list on the shop page
- Scroll down the single product page to the description section
- Click or tap the “Additional Details” tab. Under there you will see extra information attributes such as material and insertable length.
- Check if the item has an attribute marked “Prop 65” – if it does then we have been alerted to or noticed the Prop 65 warning on this product, and are informing you there.
If you are in-store and concerned about your product, then examine the packaging thoroughly and look for a “Prop 65” Warning in text form printed on the packaging, or in some cases of retroactively identified products, there may be a textual sticker warning of the Prop 65 listing on the product.
We will also be taking into consideration the Prop 65 listed products when performing future re-ordering from our distributors. We apologise if this creates a situation where products are unavailable at our store. We believe the upstream effect of retailers not stocking these products while they still contain potentially harmful materials and/or chemicals will make manufacturers consider making their products from safer materials in future.
Please note that while we are dedicated to the disclosure, we must wait for the independent identification and listing of these products, and for their manufacturers or our distributors to inform us of said listing before we can disclose this information. Black Knight Erotica will in no way be held responsible for manufacturers processes or materials, or the end user outcomes through the use of these products.
