Talc is a key ingredient in several different body powders and body-freshening products, most notably Johnson's Baby Powder and Shower-to-Shower. Talcum powder is used to reduce moisture and prevent chafing, and combined with other substances in genital deodorizing sprays.
While talc is generally considered safe for external uses, talc powder cancer is caused when inhaled or used on the genitals.

How Talcum Powder Leads To Ovarian Cancer?
Researchers say talc particles expose to the genitals may enter the female reproductive system and migrate to the ovaries. Because talc is insoluble with water, talc particles the reach the ovaries may remain intact for decades.
Talc particles cause inflammation in the ovaries, increasing cell proliferation and leading to damage to DNA. These conditions create an environment which is friendly to the growth of cancer cells.
