We stand behind the Xtrema name and believe that Xtrema is the safest and most versatile
pure ceramic cookware on the market. Every Xtrema product is third party tested by laboratories in the USA, Hong
Kong, and China before it is packaged and shipped to our warehouse in Maryland. You can find
those test results here: https://www.xtrema.com/pages/product-testing/
Xtrema is tested for extractable lead and cadmium and is certified by California Prop 65, which is the Gold
Standard for testing heavy metals. Since the company's inception our cookware has never failed one of these tests and has been proven to be non-leaching. We are committed to full transparency which is why we display our detailed “passed” test
results publicly on our website.
California Prop 65 Testing

Informational purposes only:
In 1986 the California state government passed legislation that is intended to warn consumers in
the state of the possibility of exposure to toxic chemicals. Officially known as the Safe Drinking
Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, it is better known by its original name of Proposition
Proposition 65 requires the State to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer, birth
defects, or other reproductive harm. Currently, there are around 750 chemicals listed, with lead
and cadmium being the chemicals of concern to ceramic manufactures.
Proposition 65 requires businesses to notify Californians about significant amounts of these
listed chemicals in the products they purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. Proposition 65 specifically lays out the required testing method, limits for lead and cadmium leaching, and the warning requirements for articles that exceed the limits.
The information provided here is a very brief overview of Proposition 65, and is not meant to
answer all questions regarding this law. To review the warning requirements, or to view the
regulation in its entirety, please refer to the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard
