California Proposition 65 Warning

Kinesio Tape Propositior

In 1986, California passed legislation called the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 that entitles its residents and consumers to receive special notifications about products known by the state to contain chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects and other reproductive harm if the exposure to them is above specific thresholds, so that they can make informed decisions about using them in their home or work environments. Today this legislation is commonly known as Proposition 65.

The warning labels read, “WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.”

In the United States, manufactures are required to inform California residents about any chemicals not only in our tape, but also in our packaging, that contain these chemicals.  We sent product samples and packaging to be tested and it was determined that our packaging, not our tape, does contain chemical(s) at or above the threshold that require us to properly label our products in order to sell into the state of California in the United States.

It is our mission is to help your customers make informed decisions about their health and wellness.  You can learn more about Prop 65 at

Kinesio® cannot be understood without understanding our story. Dr. Kenzo Kase developed the Kinesio Taping® Method in the 1970s to fill a void in the treatment options that were available at that time. He was searching for a way to facilitate the body’s natural healing process and prolong the benefits of his treatment after his patients left his clinic. Through his education as a chiropractor, his innate ability to sense internal pain and dysfunction through the skin and his creative therapeutic mind, Dr. Kase was able to develop new methods of treating his diagnoses. Among these methods, Kinesio® Taping industry was born and soon all other therapeutic elastic tape companies built upon Kinesio tape and methods.

The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.

Latex-free and wearable for days at a time, Kinesio® Tex Tape is safe for populations ranging from pediatric to geriatric, and successfully treats a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, neurological and other medical conditions.

If it doesn’t say Kinesio®, its not the real thing
