Talcum Powder Lawsuits in Florida
Over the years certain soaps and body washes, including baby powder, have become a staple in many women’s hygiene routines. Baby powders, as well as other popular soap and body washes, may contain talcum powder, which has been linked to ovarian cancer.
Lawsuits allege that talcum powder manufacturers did not do enough to warn consumers about the risk of developing ovarian cancer even though manufacturers knew for years about the link to cancer.

What Is Talcum Powder?
Talcum powder or talc is a clay mineral that is composed of magnesium and silicon and contains similarities to asbestos, which is a known carcinogen. After various studies analyzing the increased risk of ovarian cancer from talcum powder use for feminine hygiene, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, considers talc to also be a possible human carcinogen when applied to the genital area.
Lawsuits Claim Talcum Powder Leads To Increased Cancer Risk
Lawsuits allege manufacturers of talcum powder products were aware of the link between talcum powder use and cancer risks for over thirty years yet did not warn users by placing a warning label on their products containing talc.
The Cancer Prevention Research journal produced a study stating women had a 20 to 30 percent increased risk of developing ovarian cancer when they used baby powders or other personal powders for personal hygiene. The particles from talc minerals can travel to women’s reproductive organs and embed in the tissue, causing inflammation which is believed to be an important role in ovarian cancer development.
