About Talc Powder »

Talc is a naturally-formed mineral that is mined around the world. Its main components are silicon, magnesium, and oxygen and it is considered the softest mineral. Talc is known for its ability to absorb moisture, including both water-based and oil-based human moisture and perspiration. When it is crushed, it is transformed to a powder. “Talcum” powder and other consumer products contain talc – these include the talc-containing Johnson’s® Baby Powder and Shower to Shower® Body Powder (a brand originally owned by Johnson & Johnson and then acquired by Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. in 2012).
