Talcum powder is a very common ingredient found in a wide variety of household products. These can include baby powder, body powder, and many different cosmetic items. But in recent years, talcum powder has become more known for its concerning link to cancer. Research suggests that those who have used talcum powder regularly over long periods of time may be more likely to develop certain cancers and other serious health issues. Despite this, manufacturers of talcum powder products have failed to provide consumers with any warnings about this potential risk.

What Is Talcum Powder?

Talcum powder is a type of powder frequently found in body powders and various other products used to absorb moisture and reduce friction. Many of these products are meant to prevent rashes and other forms of skin irritation. Talcum powder’s main ingredient is talc, a mineral that contains silicon, magnesium, and oxygen. The natural form of talc can contain asbestos, which is known to be a dangerous carcinogen that can cause mesothelioma when regularly inhaled. 

Although products containing talcum powder have been required to be free of asbestos for several decades, the miners who harvest talc are still at serious risk. However, they aren’t the only ones who may be at risk for serious medical conditions caused by talcum powder.
