If you like to use body powder, it’s important to choose a talc free powder. Talc is a mineral that has been shown to be dangerous if inhaled. If loose powdered talc gets into the lungs it can cause a condition like asbestosis which damages the lung tissue and can reduce lung capacity.
Also other reports have shown that when women use loose talc powder in the genital area it can potentially affect the reproductive system. Although the risk from talc in normal use is very small, when there are perfectly effective talc free powder alternatives available, we feel it best to choose them.
Our talc free powder products are based on silk or corn starch rather than mineral talc and their perfume comes purely from essential oils rather than potentially irritating synthetic fragrance.
