Talcum Powder May Cause Ovarian Cancer if Regularly Applied to Genitals
Johnson and Johnson’s® Baby Powder is one of the most popular products containing talcum powder, may increase the risk of ovarian cancer when used for feminine hygiene. Recent court cases have shined a spotlight on the possible link between women's regular use of talcum powder on their genitals and an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.
In February 2016, a jury determined that the family of a 62-year-old Alabama woman, who died from ovarian cancer in 2015 after decades of using talcum powder for feminine hygiene, was entitled to $72 million in damages from Johnson & Johnson®. The company did not inform customers of the potential dangers of its powders despite being aware of the possible health risks.
Talcum powder is widely used in cosmetic products, such as baby powder and adult body and facial powders. The powder — made from talc, a mineral that consists of the elements magnesium, silicon, and oxygen — is used to absorb moisture and cut down on friction. Some talc contains asbestos, a substance that has been linked to cancers in and around the lungs when inhaled, according to the American Cancer Society.
