What Is Talcum Powder?
Talcum powder is primarily made from talc, a mineral containing the elements of magnesium, silicon and oxygen. The talc used in talcum powder and many other common household products can be contaminated with asbestos during the mining process. Used in baby and facial powders, cosmetics and other consumer products, talc absorbs moisture and can be used to reduce chafing of the skin. It is also used in paint, ceramics and construction materials. Despite its wide use for decades, talcum powder has been linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer and mesothelioma in some women.
