Women’s Use of Talcum Powder Products
For decades, baby powder and other talcum powder products have been marketed to women to stay fresh and dry, prevent odor and reduce friction-related irritation. In fact, you may remember the old jingle for Shower to Shower: a sprinkle a day keeps the odor away. Women have been encouraged to dust their underpants and their genital and groin areas with these products.
Even today, a visit to the Shower to Shower website depicts only women and the site will assure you that Shower to Shower can be used all over your body because “your body perspires in more places than just under the arms”. Additional recommended uses on the Shower to Shower website are for “skin that has been irritated from friction” or “after a bikini wax to help reduce irritation and discomfort”. Not surprisingly, in the hot and humid South, data indicates the use of these products is prevalent.
