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
  • Diaphragms
  • Feminine Pads
  • Tampons

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.

Ongoing Claims

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.
