One of my readers shared this with me today:
“We appreciate your dedication to dōTERRA and sincerely appreciate your patience as we reviewed your request for information and awaited scientific testing results to ensure that our information is current and accurate. As you will see from the attached report(report under “Files” screenshot below) from Puzhen Life USA, LLC, dōTERRA’s Petal Diffuser is in full compliance, and even exceeds much stricter FDA Food and Drug testing standards.
We sincerely care about the overall health and wellness of all who use dōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® quality essential oils and value outside review of our products to ensure superior quality standards. In fact, our product team works diligently to upgrade diffusers and other offerings as new components become available or better solutions exist.”
Again a statement (with supporting documentation) that does not refute nor specifically deny the fact that these diffusers have a leaded component, but tries to reassure the customer that things are ok because they comply with FDA regs for Lead (even though they have a leaded component!)
Why can’t these companies just say “Oops, my bad — we didn’t know the ring was leaded; we’ll fix that right away!”
Well in this case (with doTerra), the report below is from December of 2017, so I guess they presumably DID know they had a Leaded component – or they wouldn’t have been testing for leachable Lead at that time!
As always, thanks for reading!
