Why Talc-Free?

In a world where we are more curious about the ingredients we put on our skin and into our bodies, it’s important to understand what each ingredient is and what it does. You may have heard a huge buzz going around Talc or Talcum powder. Not sure what that is? Not to worry, that’s what we are here for!

What is Talc?

Talc or Talcum powder is an ingredient found in a range of personal care and health and beauty products. It’s commonly known to be used in baby powders. Its powder attributes typically can help with avoiding wetness that leads to diaper rash and irritation - but at what risk?

Why avoid Talc?

In recent studies by the FDA, Talc contains traces of asbestos like fibers that are known to cause cancer and tumors. It has recently been deemed as a carcinogen. Knowing that your baby’s skin can absorb over 60% of what you put on it, this is a pretty good reason to avoid any talc products.

Yes! No one wants their baby to suffer through diaper rashes and wetness. That’s why we have formulated a Talc- Free Baby Powder made with simple to read, safer ingredients.
