What is Talc?

Talc is a mineral that is mined from rocks then processed into a powder.  Talc is extremely toxic and is closely related to the potent carcinogen asbestos.  Unfortunately, talc is found in all kinds of body products, especially baby powder.  Talc has been linked to ovarian cancer and the particles cause tumors in the ovaries and lungs.  The problem is that you and your baby might inhale the talc and get it into in the lungs.  So, why take a chance when you can make your own.  It is easy and affordable.
