Does anybody here use talc as part of their aftershave routine? Any opinions on the benefits or disadvantages of using shave talc?
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
