I've been following three talc lawsuits, and felt it important enough to share what's going on. For those who aren't label detectives, like myself, talc can be found in many personal care and beauty products, from baby powder to blush to anti-blemish products.
Talcum dusting powder is commonly used to reduce rashes and diaper irritation in babies and infants. But this practice is dangerous. It can result in the inhalation of significant amounts of powder, causing acute or chronic lung irritation, known as talcosis.
