Comment Period - Intent to List Aloe Vera, Whole Leaf Extract and Goldenseal Root Powder

The California Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) intends to list Aloe vera, whole leave extract and Goldenseal root powder as known to the state to cause cancer under the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (Proposition 651). This action is being proposed pursuant to the “Labor Code” listing mechanism2. OEHHA has determined that these chemicals meet the criteria for listing by this mechanism.
