For decades, talcum powder has been regarded as a commonplace personal hygiene product with many uses. Composed of the mineral talc ground into microscopically-small granules, the substance has been lauded for rash prevention and its moisture-absorbing abilities. However, time and time again studies have shown a strong connection between the use of talcum powder and the development of ovarian cancer, especially when mixed with asbestos, a known carcinogen. Multiple lawsuits have found that talcum powder manufacturers neglected their duty to inform customers about the known health risks of using the products, thus causing thousands of ultimately preventable cases.

They have also been one of the primary targets of a number of lawsuits, both individual and class-action, due to their negligence. Multiple suits have found that Johnson & Johnson should have known about the link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer, and yet for decades failed in their duty to properly inform consumers about this risk.
