Baby Powder Cancer Claim FAQs

Why is Talc Harmful?

Talcum is the world’s softest mineral and has long been used in baby powder.

In its natural form, some talc contains asbestos — a substance known to cause cancer. Talc mined for commercial uses can be contaminated with asbestos, which is a known cause of lung cancer and mesothelioma. Talc is found in a wide range of products, including talcum powder (baby powder), feminine hygiene products, makeup, deodorant, and lotions. Talcum powder is known for its odor and moisture absorbing properties.

Some women use talc-based baby powder in their genital area where it can travel to the ovaries and cause cancer. Researchers believe that talc causes cancer by provoking chronic inflammation of the fallopian tubes, uterus, and ovaries as well as potentially suppressing cancer-fighting antibodies. Diagnoses of cancer are often made after decades of using talc-containing products.

Who is eligible to file a baby powder cancer lawsuit?

Anyone who has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer or mesothelioma after using talcum powder — or has a loved one who has been diagnosed with the disease after using a Johnson & Johnson talc-based product — may qualify to file a lawsuit or baby powder cancer claim.
