What is Talc Powder?

Talcum powder is one of the most common hygiene products on the market. Its ability to absorb moisture and reduce rashes has contributed to its popularity amongst consumers for decades. Talcum powder is made from talc, a seemingly non-complex combination of magnesium, silicon and oxygen. Since the 1970’s there has been increasing research suggesting a link between talcum powder usage for feminine hygiene and the risk of developing ovarian cancer. Discovery has recently surfaced indicating that Johnson & Johnson may have known about the possible link between talcum powder products and the risk of being diagnosed with ovarian cancer, but failed to properly warn the general public of the potential ovarian cancer risk associated with the use of its various talcum powder products, including Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder and Shower to Shower.compensation you deserve.

Women who use Talcum for feminine hygiene have a 30% greater risk of developing ovarian cancer

A study conducted in 1971 discovered that talc was in an overwhelming 75% of ovarian tumors. Due to Johnson & Johnson’s failure to warn patients and doctors about the risks of ovarian cancer that may be associated with talcum powder, individuals have been exposed to serious life-threatening danger. Since 2013, plaintiffs have been winning cases against Johnson & Johnson for ovarian cancers that developed after Baby Powder and Shower to Shower usage, giving hope to the possibility of financial compensation and product accountability to the thousands of women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using a talcum powder product.

Talcum Powder's Dangers

“Baby powder” might not be aptly named, as the product is used by women for personal usage as much as it is used on babies. Talcum powder keeps the skin dry and rash-free. Talc absorbs body moisture and eliminates friction, making it a popular product for various uses, particularly when the weather is hot, and sweat and humidity cause unwanted chafing. Nearly 40 percent of women regularly use baby powder on their bodies. Baby Powder and Shower to Shower have always been marketed for genital hygiene as a part of staying fresh. When applied to the genital region, talc can travel through the vagina, into the uterus, through the fallopian tubes, and into the ovaries. This is where it causes issues; in fact, many biopsies performed on ovarian tumors have shown talc deposits in tumor tissue. One British study found the substance in 10 out of 13 samples—a strikingly high number.
