What is Talcum Powder?
The American Cancer Society defines talcum powder as a powder that is made from talc, a mineral composed of magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. The product is widely marketed to eliminate and prevent the accumulation of excess moisture. Talcum powder is the main ingredient in many hygienic products sold in the United States, including baby powder, body powder, feminine hygiene products, lotions, eyeshadows, deodorants, and more.
Women often use products containing talcum powder for hygienic purposes. The main products on the market for this use are Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder, Shower to Shower, which is manufactured by Valeant Pharmaceuticals, and Baby Magic Baby Powder.
