Talc free baby powders have gotten a lot of attention lately because of the recently discovered risks associated with talc use.
According to the American Cancer Society “Based on limited evidence from human studies of a link to ovarian cancer, IARC classifies the perineal (genital) use of talc-based body powder as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.”
After looking at these facts, you’re probably feeling anxious about how to find the perfect baby powder to use on your baby. But don’t worry, plenty of companies make talc free baby powders these days, including us.
