The main ingredient in Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder and Shower to Shower products in is talcum powder. Although Johnson & Johnson has been aware of the risks associated with talcum powder for decades, the general public has only just become aware of it. Talcum powder has been linked to endometrial, ovarian, and uterine cancer when used in the genital area. It has also been linked to respiratory cancers such as mesothelioma and Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).
When applied to the genital area, talc can travel through the vagina and into the female reproductive organs. They body is unable to effectively get rid of the talc particles and as a result, many talc particles implant in the organs. Once this happens, healthy cells mutate and turn into cancerous masses. As a result, approximately 1,500 women die yearly from ovarian cancer caused by talc. Although the risks have been known for several decades, manufacturers like Johnson & Johnson continue to market their talc-containing products as a regular part of a freshening up routine.
