Talc is a natural mineral product known for its ability to absorb moisture
effectively. It is commonly found in many cosmetic and baby products—including
talcum powder. Other products that may contain talc include:
- Latex Condoms
- Feminine Pads
Risks of Exposure to Talc
Despite its effectiveness, talc is especially dangerous to women. Talc
can not only reach a woman’s reproductive organs and cause irritation,
but it has also been shown to dramatically increase the risk of
ovarian cancer in women.
Currently, Johnson & Johnson faces several lawsuits over the use of
talc in baby powder products. Those suits allege the product led plaintiffs
to develop both
ovarian cancer and
mesothelioma. Recently, a jury awarded $4.9 billion to 22 women who suffered ovarian
cancer after using the company’s talcum powder. Trial depositions
and testimony suggest the company has known their talc products have contained
asbestos since as early as 1971.
