What is Talc?

Talc is a mineral composed of magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. For years Talc based products have been marketed as hygiene products and they can be found in various personal care items. These include cosmetics, feminine hygiene products, such as washes, powders and deodorants, as well as diaphragms, condoms, sanitary napkins, and tampons.

Talcum Powder & Ovarian Cancer

The presence of harmful carcinogenic agents in talc, coupled with the possibility of contamination with asbestos—a known cancer-causing substance—poses significant health concerns. Since the 1970’s studies have revealed the potential link between talcum powder usage in the genital area and an increased risk of ovarian cancer. Research shows that harmful carcinogenic agents in talc can travel inside the body and become trapped in the ovaries. Annually, over 20,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer. While it’s unclear what percentage of these diagnoses are related to Talc specifically, studies have shown that women who have used talcum powder face approximately a 30% higher likelihood of developing ovarian cancer.
