Medical Community

A number of health agencies, including the World Health Organization, The American Cancer Society, and others, have expressed concerns that the use of baby powder and body powder products for feminine hygiene containing talcum may place women at an increased risk of developing ovarian cancer.

When talcum powder products are used in the vaginal area, they can travel through the Fallopian tubes to the ovaries, causing irritation that could lead to ovarian cancer. Some health experts have estimated that about 10% of ovarian cancer cases and deaths from the disease in the U.S. are caused by talcum powder products.

 Manufacturers of talcum powder products have known about the health risks for over 30 years
