Frequently Asked Questions

Before you make it your tradition, learn a little more about what makes Tadin so special.

Are your herbs tested for lead and or other contaminants?

All of our herbs are tested to meet and or exceed the safety standards required by Prop 65 regarding safe and or naturally occurring lead levels.  Please see our statement below about Prop 65.  

Our certifications to assure contaminant free herbs include; Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP), certified USDA organic, KOSHER, non-GMO project, and Fair Trade.  We are proud members of the American Herbal Products Association and the American Botanical Council.  We test our herbs for botanical identity, purity and strength.  It is our intention to support our customers health and well being with products that are naturally good for you! 

Why is my purchase labelled with a Prop 65 warning sticker?

Any product sold in California (including herbs and dietary supplements) must be labelled with this sticker to inform the consumer that the product may contain even trace amounts of any chemical found on the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment’s (OEHHA) list of known carcinogenic chemicals. This list includes many naturally occurring chemicals found in low concentrations in soil, air and water.

While all of our products meet or exceed federal and international safety standards, California’s more stridently consumer-focused laws require this label. We include the label on our products to remain fully compliant with this state law.

We respect that the spirit of this law is to ensure public safety, however, the way it is currently implemented does little to inform the consumer. The law requires the inclusion of this label even though the label says nothing about the actual safety of the product or what— if any— harmful substance is present and in what amount.

Does this mean that my product is safe despite the label?

Absolutely. Your product comes from natural processes where some of these chemicals are present. We regret the confusion created by California’s outdated law and encourage you to tell your legislators that the FDA already has a handle on regulating your dietary supplements.
