What is Talcum Powder?

Talcum powder (talc) is an ingredient added in baby powders, cosmetics, deodorants, feminine hygiene products, contraceptives (condoms and diaphragms), anti-chafing products, and many talc-containing products.

Talc is a mineral that occurs naturally in our environment. It is composed primarily of magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. As a powder, talc reduces friction and absorbs moisture and is used to prevent rashes and keep skin dry. Talcum powder is ground-up talc.

Talc and Asbestos

In its basic form, talc powder can contain asbestos. Asbestos fibers that when inhaled, has been proven to cause Mesothelioma that develops in the linings of the lungs, abdomen, or heart.

Since the 1970s, talcum powder products that people use in their homes has been asbestos-free. However, before asbestos was banned in 1980 from most consumer products containing talc, it is possible that asbestos was present in certain products like baby powder. The latency period from initial asbestos exposure to developing an asbestos cancer can be 10-50 years.
