RPWB attorneys are representing talcum powder users throughout the United States who developed ovarian cancer. Women who were regular users of talcum powder and developed ovarian cancer may be entitled to compensation from Johnson & Johnson because the company failed to warn women about the risk of using Johnson’s Baby Powder and Shower to Shower products.

The manufacturer for years has downplayed safety concerns in the face of an increasing body of science suggesting their products are harmful.

Questions about the safety of the product have lingered for decades. In 1971, researchers questioned whether the use of baby and other talcum powder causes ovarian cancer when doctors began uncovering talc particles in cancerous tumors. A 1982 Harvard University study quantified the risk, with researchers concluding that women who used talcum powder products were twice as likely to develop ovarian cancer and regular users of the products had nearly three times the risk.

Subsequent research has confirmed a link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer, including a study in 2016 that found African-American women who used talcum powder had a 44% higher risk of ovarian cancer.
