Hi these days we get to here lot about Talcim powder that it contain harmful chemical that can cause CANCER. specially the johnson products. I use to sprinkle little after getting bath to my son for the freshness. But have stopped noW but still i use Abzorb on the genital area to keep him dry. What is the alternative to powder? And also should all johnson products be refrain from using... including shampoo, lotion or oil?

My son's rashes are fine now. But m worried what if they reoccurs? M regularly using Absorb and diaper cream but do i have to use anything else also while diapering? And also which cream of lotion should i apply on him to smell good.

Hi, I usually avoid using power on my baby's skin, but if we do we use Himalaya Powder. I have stopped using any J&J product for my child but instead I bought Chico bathing lotion and shampoo which is much softer on baby's skin compared to J&J and I also bought Chico toothpaste (strawberry flavour) which my son (22 months old) loved. He now wants to brush every time he goes in bathroom and sees his toothpaste :)

Even i use powder very less, only when i feel its hot or going out in some humid envoirment. Coz i feel her underarms are getting brownish as i used to use johnson everyday. It can be due to other reason or a natural thing,but i use powder very less now. but i do use Himalya lotion almost everyday.

Hi sunny! I have recently shifted to Chico shampoo, I have not been using any kind of powder on my kids as I have the same concerns. these days u can't vouch for even the biggest players (brands) in the market that their products r safe for r children. As Deepti advised u can still use Himalayan talcum powder. I have been using olive oil for massaging my kids n have had not problems so far.

dear Sunny as a parent ur concern r quite right. I read an article in a news mag just a few hrs bk on dis. Acc. to dem ol d pwdrs use ethylene oxide. There is a possibility f it causing cancer bt dat is being tested n is yet to b proved. Moreover d carcinogeneic substace is miniscule. I think u ca use d product wd lil caution
