FAQs

Talcum Powder was a common product used for baby powder and other products for almost a hundred years, but for a long time now it is well-known for its connection to the development of cancer. Plaintiffs from all 50 states claim that the manufacturers failed to warn them about the risks of using talcum powder, as it was made from two controversial ingredients: talc and asbestos.

Talcum Powder is made from a mineral called talc, which is extracted from the soil. Talc contains magnesium, silicon, and oxygen, which makes it effective at absorbing moisture from the skin and preventing friction. This could explain why Talcum Powder was used for a hundred years mainly in cosmetic products such as baby powder, as well as adult face and body powders, to name a few uses.

The thing with Talcum is that when it is mined from the earth it can contain a dangerous group of minerals called asbestos, as explained by the American Cancer Society. These minerals were found by lab tests inside the talcum powder products. In 1976, the Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrances Association (CTFA) issued guidelines stating that all talc used to manufacture such products should be asbestos-free.

Talcum powder lawsuits are increasing due manufacturers’ failure in warning consumers about potential health risks. Research suggests that talcum powder may contain asbestos fibers, a known carcinogen causing cancer when used regularly. Those diagnosed with cancer from talc-based products may be entitled compensation through filing a lawsuit.

For decades, there has been a connection between Johnson & Johnson’s Baby Powder, Shower to Shower, and other talcum powder products and different types of cancers. Research has shown a statistical link between using these products regularly and increased rates of ovarian cancer. In July 2023, U.S. District Judge Freda Wolfson dismissed Johnson & Johnson’s claims of scientific inaccuracy. As a result, individuals can now pursue their legal rights without worrying about their claims being dismissed due to insufficient scientific evidence.

Talcum powder settlements differ based on age, health, and usage. It’s hard to know how much each settlement costs because the details are always kept confidential.Talcum powder cases are involved in a class-action lawsuit, which poses challenges in determining precise monetary values for each settlement. 

J&J has previously announced a $100 million settlement for a group of 1,000 cases, with an average of $100,000 per case. However, the exact cost of individual talcum powder settlements is uncertain due to the confidentiality of these agreements.

There are variables to consider before knowing if you qualify to file a lawsuit against talcum powder manufacturers. One of those variables is time and depends on the statute of limitations that is in place in each state. This means that you have a certain period to file your

claim, after which you can no longer sue.

In most cases, that time frame is of two years, although in some states could be up to ten. To establish if you qualify, you need to start counting from the date of the cancer diagnosis, or from the day you discovered the connections between cancer and the talcum powder product

you’ve been using for a long time.

It depends on the expertise and the strategy of your legal team, but it could go from months to years. The reason is that sometimes, gathering all the required evidence takes a lot of time. From gathering the proof of health complications to its connection to the use of the

powder, as well as estimating the financial losses, this procedure takes time.

Regarding the payout, the exact amount can’t be calculated, and whatever figure we can estimate is only speculative. Although groups of plaintiffs have been awarded billions of dollars in some cases.
