I wouldn't use it. I don't even use it on my baby boy.
There was an article I read a few years ago where a group of scientists found traces of talc on the ovaries of women suffering from ovarian cancer.

I'm confused, is cornflour based still bad?

I knew it caused something, I just wasn't sure what. Eeek, that's quite scary. Thankfully we don't use it in this house.

I'm not sure if people are aware but curash baby rash powder has talc in the ingredients. If you look at their website it says this "Curash Powder contains a high concentration of Zinc Oxide (25%) in a cornstarch and talc base which helps treat nappy rash, "

I only used a cream, and only if necessary. Not at each nappy change.

Gosh, I need to show my DH this thread. He was brought up using powder and still does but I will not use it on my DS due to the issues discussed. I know on a couple of occasions my DH has used it on my DS when I have not been there, I think I'll def show him this!!

If you're still wanting to use 'powder' type things, especially under skin folds etc, etc, then there is a cream that acts like a powder once it's applied, but it's not talc, though does the same sort of thing. I can't quite remember the name of it, but I think it's an Avent product.
