Talcum powder lawyers claim that if talcum powder is used for years the particles can travel to the fallopian tubes and the ovaries. They can stay there for years and cause irritation which eventually can result in cancer cells. Ovarian cancer rates are highest in women aged 55-64 years. This is the exact age group that Talcum powder was marketed to when they were teenagers and young women.

What Is Talcum Powder?
Talcum powder is made from talc or hydrated magnesium silicate which occurs naturally as a mineral in formations like soapstone. For over 120 years, Johnson & Johnson has marketed talcum powder around the world as a baby powder and for adults to absorb sweat in products like Shower to Shower.
Johnson and Johnson has targeted women to increase sales. “Want to feel cool, smooth and dry? It’s as easy as taking powder from a baby,” was the text in a Johnson & Johnson ad from the 1960s.
In the 1970s, the first studies emerged showing that talc was deeply embedded into ovarian cancers. Johnson & Johnson introduced corn starch alternatives but it continued to offer talc-based products. In 2014 Johnson & Johnson’s annual talcum powder sales were estimated at $374 million.
The Research Is In On Talcum Powder
The World Health Organization reports that talc is “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” Talc is banned in Europe.
