Finally – An alternative to talcum powder I can totally get behind. If you’re a dusting powder user, look no further than the Detox Dust from Cleo & Coco!
For those of you who are not up on the talcum powder debate, here’s some information from the American Cancer Society:
In its natural form, some talc contains asbestos, a substance known to cause cancers in and around the lungs when inhaled … All talcum products used in homes in the United States have been asbestos-free since the 1970s.
Most concerns about a possible link between talcum powder and cancer have been focused on:
Whether people who have long-term exposure to natural talc fibers at work, such as talc miners, are at higher risk of lung cancer from breathing them in.
Whether women who apply talcum powder regularly in the genital area have an increased risk of ovarian cancer.
So, some good information there. I’ve heard a lot of women have eschewed the product entirely, just to err on the safe side. But, finally, I’ve found an alternative that I really really like.
Cleo & Coco designed their dusting powder to absorb oder, wetness and oils to create a product that keeps you feeling dry and fresh naturally. The secret is their brilliant formulation of activated charcoal, clay and essential oils, to absorb toxins from your body while keeping you feeling and smelling dry and fresh all day.
True story: I was in desperate need of a shampoo recently, but was totally low on time. In a move of desperation (and GENIUS), I reached for this powder and sprinkled it onto my roots and scalp. As if by magic, my hair was revived (and still unwashed). The kicker? This product absorbs oil, which adds volume to your ‘do!
