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!

So! Awareness is key (no thanks to Johnson & Johnson, which according to prosecutors, has known of the potential risks of talc since the ’80s yet failed to share the facts with consumers), and the moral of the story is that you should probably ditch any and all talc-based beauty products posthaste, especially if you’re putting them close to your vagina. Opt for one of these eight talc-free body powders instead—with prices ranging from less than $5 to $27, there’s something for everyone. Some of them were probably actually made for balls, but hey, it’s all the same.
San Francisco, San Mateo, San Jose, and Bay area California - The goal of the Bay Area Diaper Bank and other local groups is to distribute free diapers to agencies throughout northern California that serve mothers and children in need. Thousands of families take advantage of the assistance program every month. Find resources in San Francisco and San Mateo County.

I had a small essential oils company, and I began working with organic aloe vera as a dynamic delivery system together with cutting edge advancements in active natural ingredients to create the beginnings of an effective natural products line.  I began using them and getting great results, which all my family and friends noticed.  They of course demanded to be let in on my secret, so after exhaustive and extensive research and development – DeVita Natural Skin Care was born! Cherylanne DeVita.
Talc is a naturally occurring mineral found in baby powders as well as other cosmetic and personal care products, and it's good at absorbing moisture, cutting down on friction, and preventing rashes. For many years, parents used it to diaper babies, until doctors began discouraging it for health reasons. As for adults, many still use it around their genitals or rectum to prevent chafing or sweating, says Mary Jane Minkin, MD, clinical professor of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive services at Yale School of Medicine.
Zabana Essentials Dry Shampoo Lavender Citrus Mint smells amazing. It's a really fresh scent without being overpowering. All the scents 0f lavender, mint, and lemon come thru when you use it. This shampoo is made with kaolin clay, avena (collodial oatmeal), arrowroot powder, sodium bicarbonate, essential oils,  and bamboo extract. With clay as the first ingredient, I find it's great for hiding greasy hair in between wet shampooing. It's 100% natural and vegan.

Perhaps an even more serious danger, the tiny particles of talcum powder have been linked with an increased risk in cancer, particularly ovarian cancer, for women that have used it for feminine hygiene. The size of the particles means that it can easily enter the body and travel through the reproductive system to the ovaries, causing them to become irritated and inflamed. In early 2016 baby powder producer Johnson & Johnson were ordered to pay $51 million to the family of a woman who died of ovarian cancer, believed to have been caused by the company’s talcum powder.

Fat and The Moon Lavender & Cocoa Dry Shampoo is perfect for light brown to dark brown or black tresses. The shampoo is made of cocoa powder, arrowroot starch, kaolin clay, and lavender essential oil. It's easy to apply to the hair root. Simply part your hair and apply the powder using a brush. Beware of the seductive combination of lavender and chocolate – it might send you on a chocolate binge!
**Please note: Some people are opposed to using essential oils when caring for children and babies. I've found that most popular natural baby skincare lines use them safely and successfully for their healing and sensory qualities and have chosen to do so as well. This is something for you to research yourself and decide what is best for you and your baby.

Medical institutions such as the doctor’s offices and hospitals frequently get free samples of diapers from manufacturers to distribute to patients. Since those samples are usually samples of new products, there is no guarantee of what types or sizes are available, but if you call local doctors and hospitals in your area, you can find out what’s currently available.

According to the family, Fox used Johnson & Johnson’s talc-based Baby Powder as a feminine hygiene product each day for nearly 50 years—and she’s not the only one, as several hundred women have reported similar adverse effects as part of a larger lawsuit. It’s been suggested that talc may indeed cause ovarian cancer, particularly when used in the genital area, where the powder particles risk traveling through the vagina, uterus, and fallopian tubes.
Just as we mentioned above with regards to magazines, baby product companies are often very eager to give out free samples. They know that new parents have to be very choosy and they want to get some positive word-of-mouth, so they’re often more than happy to send out free products in the mail. Try registering on company websites or simply contacting them about samples; you’ll strike gold in no time.
French Girl Organics range of cosmetic products are all at least 80 percent organic, with this particular product containing 95 percent certified organic or wildcrafted ingredients. This powder is based on arrowroot, rather than cornstarch, combined with kaolin white clay. It contains no synthetic fragrances or GMO products and is certified vegan safe.
Why talc free? There is some controversy regarding the safety of talcum powder. Back in the day, it contained asbestos (a known carcinogen), but from the 70's forward, all talc used in bath and body products in the US is asbestos free. So what's the issue? Some believe that even the asbestos free talc is carcinogenic and studies have been unable to prove otherwise.  Bits from the American' Cancer Society's page "Talcum Powder and Cancer" like this:
In August 2017, a jury in California ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $417 million to a woman who says she developed terminal ovarian cancer. However, a superior court judge overturned the verdict in October and ordered a new trial. In February 2016, a Missouri court ordered Johnson & Johnson to pay $72 million in damages to the family of Jackie Fox, a woman who died of ovarian cancer. This verdict was also overturned in Missouri Appeals Court in October 2017.
I use this for me. Good price point compared to other non-talc powders and will last a long time. I mainly use a little underneath "the girls" (women will understand that). My Dr. told me, after I brought it up to him, that I tend toward a type of 'yeast' issue there causing itching. Yes, it's possible! This powder is perfect to help that situation; every day and especially hot weather. (fyi-Dr. also suggested using a plain bar of soap-Dial for that particular area) My skin is very sensitive and this powder does not give me any problems. I would think this would be great for a baby's bum.
One of my first projects when our baby was small was a natural homemade baby powder. His tiny little delicate rolls were difficult to keep dry with so many diaper changes during the day. I had so much fun concocting the perfect gentle, soothing baby powder that could be used on him, and it smelled so wonderful I ended up adding it to my own post-shower routine!
Talcum powder is made from talc, a mineral made up mainly of the elements magnesium, silicon, and oxygen. As a powder, it absorbs moisture well and helps cut down on friction, making it useful for keeping skin dry and helping to prevent rashes. It is widely used in cosmetic products such as baby powder and adult body and facial powders, as well as in a number of other consumer products.
Baby companies give out a ton of free baby samples but only if they know you're out there and have a baby. If there's a company that makes a baby product you'd like to try, you should visit their website and register your information with them. This way when the baby companies decide to send out free baby samples, they'll automatically send one out to you.
When I was expecting my first child, someone gave me a huge supply of diapers at my baby shower. I thought it was nice, but it also wasn't the giant stuffed giraffe I thought I "needed" for the nursery. Diapers were... practical. Fast-forward to now, when I have not one, but two kids, in diapers and I want to go back and kiss the feet of that mama who had the foresight to get me diapers. Diapers are expensive AF. So for everyone wondering how to get free diapers, here are some helpful pointers.

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.)

Lab studies: In studies done in the lab, animals are exposed to a substance (often in very large doses) to see if it causes tumors or other health problems. Researchers might also expose normal cells in a lab dish to the substance to see if it causes the types of changes that are seen in cancer cells. It’s not always clear if the results from these types of studies will apply to humans, but lab studies are a good way to find out if a substance might possibly cause cancer.

@ccoon17 Just to add on to the Amazon welcome box - I *think* you have to be a prime member (I remember another post where someone said that; I'm prime so I can't confirm that) and $10 minimum needs to be purchased from your registry - you can buy it yourself lol there is something I'm sure you'll need that's cheap. Can also set the registry to private if you'd like. My welcome box came with a TON of stuff - diaper, huge pack of wipes, pacifiers, muslin swaddle, tub of lysol wipes, a onesie, coupons, lil travel sized soaps and washes, body suit and a bottle. Totally worth it. Reply

Moody Sisters Dry Shampoo is one I love, and the brand that turned me onto using dry shampoo. It’s perfect for the times when your hair doesn’t quite need to be washed again, but could look a little less greasy. The puff applicator makes it so easy to apply and blend into your scalp without any mess. It’s handmade with organic arrowroot powder, non GMO cornstarch, lemon peel powder, organic witch hazel, and aluminum free baking soda. It’s also vegan and cruelty-free.

Essential Oils – I like chamomile (Roman or German) and lavender essential oil for this DIY Baby Powder. They are two of the only essential oils considered safe for use with babies and also have wonderful anti-inflammatory and soothing properties when used on skin. Note: Essential oil use is not recommended for babies under 3 months of age because their skin is not yet mature, therefore making it more sensitive to essential oils.
