Lawyers for Shower-to-Shower Ovarian Cancer
Shower-to-Shower body powder has been sold in various formulations that contain talc, which may increase the risk of ovarian cancer when applied to the female genitals.
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are investigating potential Shower-to-Shower lawsuits for women throughout the United States who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, as it appears that the manufacturers knew or should have known about the risk, yet continued to sell the talcum body powder without warning about these serious and potentially life-threatening health problems.
Potential Johnson’s Baby Powder lawsuits are also being pursued on behalf of women who used this other talc-based product as well.

Shower-to-Shower Powder Ovarian Cancer Risks
Originally introduced by Johnson & Johnson, Shower-to-Shower Body Powder has been sold as a safe and effective way for women to combat moisture and maintain smooth skin.
Talcum Body Powder Lawyers
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk are investigating potential Shower-to-Shower ovarian cancer lawsuits for women throughout the United States.
As a result of failure to warn about the risk of ovarian cancer from the talc body powder, financial compensation may be available.
Early versions were based on talcum powder, which has been linked to ovarian cancer. However, some versions now are based off of cornstarch, which is considered by many a safer alternative.
In October 2012, Valeant Pharmaceuticals acquired Shower-to-Shower from Johnson & Johnson and currently sells it in a number of versions, including:
- Original Fresh
- Breeze Fresh
- Island Fresh
- Morning Fresh
Johnson & Johnson and Valeant have promoted Shower-to-Shower powder for use “all over your body.” However, this practice may have caused many women to develop ovarian cancer.
The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer considers talc to be a possible carcinogen when used on genitals.
A study published in June 2013 in the medical journal Cancer Prevention Research found that women who used body powders containing talc on their genitals may face a 20% to 30% higher risk of ovarian cancer.
Other research has found that talc applied to the genitals may migrate through the body, with some studies indicating that talc was embedded in 75% of all ovarian cancer tumors studied.
Despite substantial research that suggests side effects of Shower-to-Shower body powder may increase the risk of ovarian cancer when applied to the genitals as a feminine hygiene product, warnings about this potential health problem were withheld from women for decades by Johnson & Johnson and Valeant.
Shower-to-Shower Cancer Class Action Lawuyrs
It appears that first Johnson & Johnson, and now Valeant, have placed profits ahead of women’s health and safety. Both companies knew or should have known for years that talc may increase the risk of ovarian cancer associated with talcum body powder, yet women have not been adequately warned and talc has not been completely removed from the formulations.
The product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential Shower-to-Shower class action lawsuits and individual body powder claims for women throughout the United States who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using this product or other talc-based powders, such as Johnson’s Baby Powder.
