What is talc?

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - BUSINESS -

Talc is a min­eral that is mined from de­posits around the world, in­clud­ing the U.S. The soft­est of min­er­als, it’s crushed into a white pow­der. It’s been widely used in cos­met­ics and other per­sonal care prod­ucts to ab­sorb mois­ture since at least 1894, when John­son & John­son’s Baby Pow­der was launched. But it’s mainly used in a va­ri­ety of other prod­ucts, in­clud­ing paint and plas­tics.
