ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Talcum powder comes from rock deposits that can be found around the world. It is characterized by its softness, and in fact, is the softest mineral on earth. Talcum powder absorbs moisture and keeps skin dry. While talcum powder seems harmless, a 2016 study from the Epidemiology Journal found additional risks with talcum powder use. While it is already proven that natural talcum containing asbestos increases an individual’s chances of lung cancer, asbestos-free talc applied to women’s genital areas can increase the chances of developing ovarian cancer by 33 percent.
