Victory! Johnson & Johnson to stop global sales of its cancer-causing talc-based baby powder

We are proud to announce Johnson & Johnson finally committed to fully removing its talc-based baby powder from the global market and end the company’s targeted marketing to Black women and other historically marginalized communities. This campaign, led by Black Women for Wellness, was coordinated in partnership with over 200 organizations from around the globe. Women everywhere, especially women of color, are concerned about possible asbestos contamination in talc and the talc-ovarian cancer link. Thanks to your action and the efforts of so many around the world, J&J will stop gambling with women’s health.
