Intro To The Johnson & Johnson Talcum Powder Lawsuit
Talcum powder is the primary ingredient in Baby Powder, a staple product of the American household.
Despite decades of claims that the product was both safe and effective, studies have shown that talcum powder and talc-based Baby Powder can put users at risk of life-threatening illnesses, including ovarian cancer and mesothelioma.
It was recently announced that Johnson & Johnson has offer a significant Talcum Powder settlement totaling nearly $9 billion.
This proposed Talcum Powder settlement has not yet been agreed to.
J&J’s talcum powder products are being removed from the market.
Even though a settlement has been offered, those who have not yet filed their Talc Powder Cancer Lawsuit are encouraged to consult with our Talcum Powder Lawyers.

Johnson & Johnson is the primary seller of talcum powder based baby powder and is facing lawsuits from women across the country who have developed ovarian cancer and other health conditions.
Johnson & Johnson recently offered to pay $8.9 billion to settle nearly 40,000 Talcum Powder Lawsuit claims.
This settlement offer has not yet been accepted.
Plaintiffs lawyers argue that the settlement offer may not cover the breadth of Talcum Powder Cancer Lawsuits, and that Johnson & Johnson is using the settlement offer as a way to place a subsidiary company, LTL Management LLC, into bankruptcy.
Average Talcum Powder Lawsuit Settlement Amounts
Based on the April 2023 settlement offer and previous settlements reached in verdicts, our Talcum Powder Attorneys estimate that Talcum Powder Lawsuits could settle for anywhere between $100,000 and $1 million.
These estimates are by no means a guarantee of financial compensation for Talcum Powder Lawsuits.
They are only an estimation based on previous settlements for Talcum Powder claims.
In 2020, Johnson and Johnson paid a settlement worth nearly $100 million for 1,000 Talcum Powder Lawsuits.
Also in 2020, 22 women were paid $2.12 billion to settle their Talcum Powder claims.
New Talcum Powder Cases May Still Be Eligible for Financial Compensation
Even though Johnson & Johnson has agreed to pay $8.9 billion, the Talcum Powder settlement has not been accepted by the plaintiff’s lead counsel.
The Talcum Powder Litigation is still ongoing, and claims will be accepted until an adequate settlement is reached.
While it is a step in the right direction toward an adequate Talcum Powder settlement, it’s to be considered that this settlement offer may not be financially adequate to cover all Talcum Powder Lawsuits and there are disputes over the manner this settlement offer has been made.

What Is Talcum Powder?
Talcum powder is made from talc, a naturally occurring mineral composed of magnesium, silicon, oxygen, and hydrogen.
Talc is used in several cosmetics and baby powder.
Links have been made between talcum powder and ovarian cancer, which has led to thousands of talcum powder lawsuit cases.
Talcum powder particles are so small and lightweight that many people inhale the powder unknowingly.
Talc particles can get stuck in the body, damaging the lungs and other organs over time.
Lawyers and medical professionals are currently investigating talcum powder for causing ovarian cancer and mesothelioma.
If you’ve been diagnosed with ovarian cancer or mesothelioma and used a talc product, you may be eligible to file a talcum powder lawsuit.

What Is Talcum Powder Used For?
People have used talcum powder around the world for centuries.
It is not exclusive to any industry or brand, but is used in cosmetics, baby powder, and several other consumer products.
Talcum powder is most suitable as a drying agent, and some users even treat it as an offhand tool by washing their hair with it or keeping surfaces dry.
Talcum powder is used most often in the following products:
Makeup, such as blush, foundation, and eye shadow
Paints and glazes
Johnson & Johnson have announced that they will stop selling talc based baby powder globally in 2023.
Talcum Powder companies have a responsibility to keep consumers safe, and if they fail to do so, they should face legal action.
Baby Powder Containing Talcum Powder
Talcum powder has been a main ingredient to baby powder for decades up until the recent medical, scientific and legal scrutiny of late.
In fact, the physical properties of talcum powder make it an alternative to brand name baby powder on its own.
The well-known talc based baby powder is made by Johnson & Johnson, a product they’ve sold for over 100 years.
Controversy has surrounded Johnson & Johnson baby powder after thousands of its users have claimed that the powder caused them to develop adverse health effects such as ovarian cancer and mesothelioma.
Researchers believe these injuries to be caused by the talcum powder.
Talc companies will market the mineral as “pure” or “organic” but fail to ensure the quality of their product.
As a result, some talcum powder contains harmful impurities, namely asbestos, a known carcinogen.
Inhalation of asbestos can damage the lungs over time and lead to fatal complications.
If you’ve noticed a change in your respiratory health after using baby powder, call a talcum powder lawyer as soon as possible.
Talcum Powder Exposure: Potential Injuries And Side Effects
Talcum Powder and Talc Particles increase the risk of ovarian cancer, mesothelioma, and other serious health problems.
Those who are using talcum powder products as a genital powder have an increased risk to experience several serious health problems.
Talcum powder particles are so small and mobile that they can enter the body without the person knowing.
The particles are not easily filtered, thus disrupting the body’s natural processes and damaging internal organs.
Health problems related to Talcum Powder use include:
The side effects of talcum powder include:
Irritation of the skin or throat
Most side effects are more common in infants than in adults.
While some of these symptoms appear to be mild, they may be indicative of a more serious illness, especially respiratory symptoms.
If you start to experience side effects, it’s recommended you avoid talcum powder, contact a doctor and a talcum powder lawyer.
Ovarian Cancer Risk And Talcum Powder
Ovarian cancer is rare but has been linked to using talcum powder products on or near the vagina.
Epithelial ovarian cancer, the most common type of ovarian cancer, has been diagnosed in several women who have used Johnson and Johnson’s baby powder products.
Studies suggest that women who use baby powder in this way have a 30% increased risk to develop ovarian cancer.
Similar to the respiration problems caused by talcum powder, the particles stay trapped in the ovaries and damage the cells until cancer forms.
Ovarian cancer symptoms include:
Discomfort near the pelvis
The risk of developing ovarian cancer increases with age.
If you’re currently using baby powder or another talc product in the genital area, consider the risks before continuing.
Genital powder use has been specifically linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer.
Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Lawsuits have been filed on behalf of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer after using talcum powder.

Links Between Talcum Powder And Cancer
As early as the 1970s, scientists began looking at the connection between the dusting of female genitals with talcum powder and ovarian cancer.
Based on the marketing of these products for use on babies and as a feminine ritual, most people assume that such a common household item is safe to use.
It is imperative that women are warned about the risk of using talcum powder in their daily feminine hygiene routine.
Increasing evidence suggests that this staple of bathrooms and nurseries for generations may be linked to ovarian cancer.
A recent study shows that women who commonly apply talc products to the genital area have a 33% increased chance of developing cancer.
Mesothelioma And Talcum Powder Use
Mesothelioma is a lung condition caused by inhaling asbestos and asbestos fibers.
The main characteristic of mesothelioma is fluid buildup on the lining of the lungs.
Asbestos is used in some insulations, floor tiles, and old machinery.
Sometimes, however, talcum powder contains small amounts of asbestos that may be overlooked by manufacturers.
Baby powder labels omit any warnings that the product may contain asbestos.
Mesothelioma symptoms include:
It’s common for these symptoms not to appear for decades.
Your doctor can perform x-rays, blood tests, and biopsies to test for mesothelioma.
While the connection between asbestos and mesothelioma is well-established, the controversy regarding mesothelioma and talcum powder focuses on which brands have a defective product.
If a specific brand of talcum powder has caused you or someone you know to be injured, contact a talcum powder lawyer as soon as possible.
If you habitually used talcum powder and subsequently developed mesothelioma, you may want to contact a mesothelioma lawyer to discuss the possibility of filing a Baby Powder mesothelioma lawsuit.
