The info found at this site would seem to indicate that while in it's natural form, talc may contain asbestos, certainly no talc sold in products for in-home use will contain any. You should probably be more concerned about all those harmful rays coming off of the computer screen as you read this post.finegelernt said:There is a lot of evidence that talc is a carcinogen. Chemically it is closely related to asbestos and it is not a good idea to inhale it. Especially every day after shaving.
I get razor burn all the time and talc often helps to get rid of it virtually overnight but in your place I would definitely switch to baby corn starch which works just as well if not better, and not as harmful.
I have been using just hands but have been looking for a brush. I originally thought that a long bristled barber's brush would be nice, but now I'm not so sure that a shorter bristled cosmetics brush might not be better (like a rouge brush).Flounder said:Ahem back on topic
Now when applying talc do you use a brush or just hands... and if a brush, what kind of brush do you use.
Flounder thanks you for your help
