Talc in Cosmetics May Contain Asbestos

The FDA has conducted an exploratory survey of cosmetic products that contain talc and cosmetic-grade raw material talc due to concerns the products may contain asbestos.

According to the FDA, no asbestos fibers were found in any of the samples. However, the results were somewhat limited because the FDA only received talc from four suppliers. The survey concluded that the results were informative but do not prove that all cosmetics containing talc sold in the U.S. are asbestos free.

Talc is a mineral that occurs naturally and is composed of silicon, hydrogen, oxygen, and magnesium. Scientific literature that dates back to the 1960s has suggested talc may be linked to ovarian cancer.
