Talc Powders: Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower Powder

talcum powder ovarian cancer

Talc has been used as a cosmetic powder for thousands of years. It is available in numerous body powders, though some companies have switched to corn starch and other substitutes due to concerns over talcum powder health risks.

One of the most widely used talcum powder product is Johnson’s Baby Powder, which was first introduced in 1893.  While it most commonly associated with use on infants to smooth skin and prevent diaper rash, it is also commonly used by adult women for feminine hygiene.

Shower-to-Shower powder was introduced as a product specifically targeted at women as a general talcum body powder.

Despite the widespread use of the products among women, a number of studies have suggested that side effects of talcum powder as a feminine hygiene product may increase a woman’s chances of developing ovarian cancer.


Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Problems

Although it appears that Johnson & Johnson and other manufacturers knew or should have known about these potential talcum powder cancer risks for decades, information has been withheld from women.

Talc contained in Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower Body Powder may travel through the vagina and enter the ovaries.   As a result, regular users of talcum powder diagnosed with ovarian cancer are often found to have evidence of talc in tumors.

In 1982, a report published by the New York Times suggested that Johnson & Johnson was aware that women may be three times as likely to develop ovarian cancer if they use talcum powder on their genitals.

Despite calls for additional warnings to be added or for talcum powder recalls to be issued to ensure women are aware of the risk, the only warnings provided to women indicate to avoid contact with the eyes or broken areas of skin.

In 2013, a study published in the medical journal Cancer Prevention Research looked at data on about 2,000 women who used talcum powder on the genital area. The findings suggested that women who use talc body powder may have a 20% to 30% higher risk of ovarian cancer when compared to women who do not use the baby powder or body powder products

Some experts have suggested that more than 10,000 cases of ovarian cancer each year may be caused by problems with talcum powder.
