I know you heard about the link between talc and ovarian cancer after the huge company, Johnson & Johnson was sued for $72 million, right? Just in time for the months when you'll be sweating more, and less likely to wash your hair as frequently, we came up with a long list of the best talc free powders that are safe to use from head to toe. Baby powders and body powders without talc should be on your list. And everyone's new favorite, dry shampoo should be talc free too. We have an extensive list of American made options for you.

Believe Organics Talc Free Powder freshens, deodorizes, and absorbs moisture safely. This talc free loose powder handmade in small batches with organic rosemary & lavender essential oils. The ingredients including, certified organic cornstarch, certified organic arrowroot, certified organic tapioca, sweet rice, kaolin clay, saleratus, certified organic lavender, certified organic rosemary, and other certified organic essential oils. I love using this powder to keep drying during heavy workouts or during the summer to ward off chafing. When you sweat, light lavender and rosemary scents cover up body odor.

It’s also pricey in the long run. With our help you’ll be able to save a lot of money. We search out companies giving away free formula samples and share the news every time, so that you’ll find exactly what your baby needs, for free, when it’s available. One incredible advantage to free formula samples is that you can try out a number of top brands without making a financial commitment; find the one that’s best for you and your baby!

The powder is made with organic tapioca startch, organic corn starch, organic marshmallow root extract, organic aloe leaf extract, organic calendula flower extract, organic rose hip fruit oil, organic rose flower oil, organic rosemary leaf oil, lactobacillus ferment lysate filtrate, allantoin, and kaolin clay. 
Erica, I was very happy to see that you noted that the science on a talc/ ovarian cancer risk is inconclusive at best. It might be nice to move it closer to the start of this article. It’s important, because “evidence based science” is increasingly getting kicked to the curb and that’s a bad thing (don’t vaccinate your kids because one disproved study said they were linked and now people have died from measles). That said, J &J started making cornstarch baby powder years ago, it’s what we use.
Arrowroot starch or tapioca starch. Both staples in a paleo baker’s kitchen, these starches are all-natural alternatives to talc. Arrowroot is derived from several tropical South American plants. Tapioca starch is derived from the crushed-up pulp of the South American cassava plant, a woody shrub. Both are used in paleo recipes as alternatives to flour and cornstarch. If you’re using it to on your baby’s sore bottom, try this recipe with some extra ingredients to help soothe.
But honestly, cloth diapers, as I mentioned earlier, have the most robust free diaper programs and they're the easiest to access. Groups like Giving Diapers, Giving Hope and The Rebecca Foundation's Cloth Diaper Closet offer free cloth diapers to those in need. Alternatively, you can get free or very cheap cloth diapers from online forums like Diaper Swappers that specialize in recycled (highly laundered) cloth diapers. Change-Diapers.com is a great resource with a link every Friday for cloth diaper giveaways they've found online, too.
In laboratory studies, exposure of rats, mice, and hamsters to asbestos-free talc resulted in mixed findings, with tumor formation in some studies. Findings from studies in women that examined the possible link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer were mixed, with some studies showing a slightly increased risk. A small increase in risk was seen in many case-control studies. No increased risk was seen in one prospective cohort study, while a modestly increased risk was seen in a second study. Increased risk of lung cancer and other respiratory diseases has been seen in some studies of talc miners and millers. Lung cancer risk was not increased with reports of cosmetic talcum powder use. One study suggested increased risk of endometrial cancer with genital talcum powder use.
Nature's Baby Organics Silky Dusting Powder is safe and gentle enough for all infants, even newborns. It is made out of nothing but USDA certified organic ingredients, including tapioca starch, and organic extracts, including matricaria flower extract, echinacea angustifolia extract, and goldenseal extract to further soothe and calm irritated skin. Simply dust it over baby’s bottom to absorb wetness and relieve chaffing.

This isn't the first time the company has been involved in a lawsuit over its popular powder—and it will likely face hundreds more cases in the future, according to Reuters. In May, a Missouri jury awarded $110 million to a Virginia woman who alleged that her cancer was caused by baby powder, and last October, a Missouri woman was awarded more than $70 million.
I once calculated how much I'd spent in diapers between my children. The price was staggering. In the beginning, I bought the crunchiest disposable diapers available. After that messy lesson, I switched to a popular brand that cost nearly as much. I never really thought about what I would do if I couldn't pay for them, but where can you get free diapers for your baby? It makes sense to wonder — it cost me thousands of dollars to hold my baby's crap.
Talcum powder has been making headlines lately, but it's not a new ingredient. It's been used for centuries and can be found in a slew of consumer products, from dry shampoo and blush to baby powder. But what is talc, exactly? It's a mineral that is made up of silicon, oxygen, and magnesium and is meant to absorb moisture (therefore preventing rashes). In its natural state, talc can contain asbestos, which is a known carcinogen — but according to the American Cancer Society, commercial products containing talc have been asbestos-free since the 1970s.
Hi and welcome to my little corner of the internet! I'm Kate Sorensen and I LOVE to find deals on all things kitchen, family, home, beauty, women's & kid's clothing and more. While finding some deals here and there is fun, I also have a true passion for cooking and baking, so I'll share some of my favorite family recipes with you, as well as products that I think totally rock, too. Want to get in contact with me? Please email me at Kate@couponcravings.com. I'd love to hear from you!

Did you know that when you sign up for a free magazine it puts your name on a list that says that you probably have young children? And you know who would like to send you promotional items (and maybe coupons) because you have small children? Diaper companies! Diaper companies buy marketing lists so that they can send you advertisements to win you over. Plus, lots of times the FREE Magazine Subscriptions I receive come with bonus coupons inside! Randomly I will see Huggies, Pampers or Luvs coupons.
Johnson & Johnson said in a statement that the company will appeal this latest verdict, and cites a National Cancer Institute report from April that found the weight of evidence “does not support an association between perineal talc exposure and an increased risk of ovarian cancer.” (However, the New York Times reports, the report takes a different tone in another section, noting that “it is not clear” whether talc is a risk factor for cancer.)
Do you have a baby coming or maybe someone in your family does? We have lots of grandparents and parents requesting free baby samples every month. We spend hours searching the web for free baby stuff and we compile a list of baby freebies. Most companies give out free samples because they secretly hope to get you addicted to their brand. There are so many different diapers, formula, wipes and all other kids of baby stuff out there.
Sometimes, a written letter or email telling a diaper company about your baby’s birth (especially if you have multiples) asking for a product to sample can result in some free diapers. I wouldn’t really recommend going the “sob story” route too strong, but companies want to know you, their customer. If you ever have faulty diapers, be sure to contact them as most have a guarantee and will replace your defective diapers for free.

There are resources available to you if you need them, though. Also, don't discount cloth diapers if you have the means to launder them. They're often easier to get at free or reduced cost, not to mention they're way better for the environment, and you can be super smug about that. (Unrelated, but once you're done diapering your baby, those diapers really make the best dusting cloths and glass cleaners.)
