There Is Growing Evidence of a Causal Link Between the Use of Baby Powder and Cancer — A case-controlled study in the May 2016 issue of the Journal Epidemiology reported the link between talcum powder and cancer finding that women who routinely applied talc powder to their genital areas had a 33% higher risk of developing ovarian cancer.
Prospective Study Identifies Increased Risk of Serous Ovarian Cancer With Talc Use — A study published in 2000 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute concluded that “perineal talc use may modestly increase the risk of invasive serous ovarian cancer” — the most common type which accounts for approximately two-thirds of diagnosed cases.
A “20% to 30% Increase in Risk of Developing Epithelial Ovarian Cancer, Including Serous, Endometrioid, and Clear Cell Tumors” was suggested with genital talc powder use in a pooled analysis of eight case-control studies published in 2013 in the journalCancer Prevention Research.

Holding Johnson & Johnson Responsible
Internal company documents disclosed during a recent trial in St. Louis show that many years ago, and with full knowledge of the results, Johnson & Johnson engaged in a campaign to discredit scientific research which demonstrated that long-term, frequent, genital application of talc-containing powder by women posed over a 30% increase in the risk of developing ovarian cancer.
At no time did Johnson & Johnson include any warnings about the link between the use of its talc-containing powders by women and ovarian cancer to the public.
Unlike strict warning and labeling rules for prescription drugs, those for consumer cosmetic products like Johnson’s® Baby Powder and Shower to Shower® Body Powder remains unregulated by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
If you or a loved one were diagnosed with ovarian cancer and had a history of using Johnson’s® Baby Powder and Shower to Shower® Body Powder, we would like to talk with you.
