There is a resistance to using talc for babies. Even though talc is a natural mined mineral fromt he ground, it is in fact what glass is made from – Silica , just in its very finest powered ground form.
Under a microscope, the molecules of talc are sharp like tiny splinters – so parents are reluctant to use it as theory is that it irritates more than it soothes.
This remains to be proved and generations of babies have grown up with real talc with no side effects. However, the market demands talc free talc – which is what we sell. Finest ground cornflour talc.
