Baby powders absorb moisture and keep your little one comfortable, especially when the diaper brushes against the skin of a baby. Baby powder is usually made from a clay mineral (talc), cornstarch, arrowroot or other powders.

Asbestos is an active ingredient that’s found in talcum powder and can be harmful if inhaled or swallowed by infants. If your baby inhales talc powder, it can be harmful as the fine particles present in it can clog the air sacs of their lungs. It can dry out the mucus membranes and result in respiratory diseases which include asthma, pneumonia, lung fibrosis, respiratory failure and pulmonary talcosis.

This begs the question, “Is it safe to use baby powder containing talc”?

Baby powders that are clinically proven and are made from certified organic ingredients are the only ones that are advisable to use on babies. 

What are these certified organic ingredients? Here’s a list:
