For decades, women have been using talcum-based powders, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder, as a personal hygiene substance. While the product may appear harmless, many medical reports state that many of these talc-based products have been linked to the development of ovarian cancer in women. In fact, the United States Food and Drug Administration states that literature from as far back as the 1960’s has suggested a connection between talc powders and ovarian cancer.

Dangerous Talcum Powder Constituents

Most talcum powder products are made using the following types of ingredients:

  • Oxygen talcum
  • Silicon
  • Magnesium

In most cases, these products are used to reduce and prevent friction that is caused by excessive moisture. Additionally, many people find these products useful to maintain drier skin in order to decrease the likelihood of rashes. However, studies have shown that when talc powder products are used on or near female genitals, the particles can migrate inside the body and become trapped in the ovaries. When these particles become stuck in the ovaries, they can cause the ovaries to inflame and produce cancer cells.

According to the Cancer Prevention Research Journal, women who use these products on or near the genital areas increase the risks of developing ovarian cancer by nearly 41%. Still, many of these talcum powder products remain in stores and do not come equipped with adequate safety warnings.
