Have you checked the ingredients in your skincare and makeup products lately? If you see talc listed, you may want to think twice before slathering that product on your skin. Talc is often contaminated with asbestos during the mining process, and asbestos is a known carcinogen. Do you really want to risk exposing yourself to a cancer-causing ingredient multiple times a day?
At True Organic of Sweden, we take ingredients and your health seriously. Our founder Tina de Sousa is known for being even stricter about product purity than organic certification boards. We thoroughly vet each ingredient to ensure it’s not only good for your skin but also good for the planet. You can feel confident that our skincare and makeup products are 100% talc-free, as well as free of other toxins, harsh chemicals and nasty additives. Your health and safety are our top priorities.
The Dangers of Talc in Skincare Products
The Dangers of Talc in Skincare Products
Talc Contains Asbestos
Talc is often used in makeup and skincare products as a filler because it's cheap. The problem is, talc deposits frequently contain asbestos, a known carcinogen. Asbestos fibers are so small that they easily become airborne and inhaled. Studies show a link between asbestos exposure and mesothelioma, a cancer of the lining of the lungs.
While cosmetic-grade talc goes through processing to remove asbestos, it's nearly impossible to eliminate it completely. Trace amounts still remain in many talc-based products. The FDA does not currently require cosmetic companies to disclose asbestos contamination, so you likely won't see it listed on ingredient labels.
Look for talc-free makeup and skincare. Mineral-based alternatives like cornstarch, arrowroot, and rice powder work great as substitutes.
Avoid powder cosmetics when possible. Loose powders have a higher chance of becoming airborne, increasing your exposure.
Check the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep database to find talc-free product options. They list thousands of products and all the ingredients.
Your health and safety should be top priority. Choosing talc-free skincare and makeup is an easy way to reduce health risks and ensure what you put on your skin is safe. At True Organic of Sweden, we are committed to formulating products with only the highest quality, natural ingredients to nourish your skin without exposing you to harmful toxins.
Why You Should Avoid Talc Containing Asbestos
Talc is found in all kinds of makeup and skincare products, but did you know it often contains asbestos, a known carcinogen? Asbestos forms naturally in the environment, and since talc is mined from the earth, it frequently gets contaminated with asbestos during the mining process. There’s really no way for companies to remove all traces of asbestos from talc.
Why You Should Avoid Products Containing Talc
Talc particles are so tiny they can enter your lungs and bloodstream, and any asbestos in the talc poses serious health risks like lung cancer or mesothelioma.
Asbestos exposure is dangerous even in small amounts. There is no “safe” level of asbestos exposure.
Talc and asbestos particles accumulate in your body over time with repeated use. The more often you use talc-based makeup and skincare, the greater your health risks become.
Loose powder products pose the biggest threat since the particles become airborne and easily inhaled. But creams, lotions and makeup also allow talc and asbestos to enter through your skin.
Safer alternatives to talc exist, like cornstarch, oat flour, and clay. There’s no need to expose yourself to the potential health risks of talc.
At True Organic of Sweden, we take ingredients and your health very seriously. Our products are talc-free, asbestos-free and made from organic ingredients sustainably sourced from nature. You can feel good about what you’re putting on your skin and avoid exposing yourself to dangerous toxins. Your health and safety matter to us. Why use talc when there are so many natural alternatives?
