From next year, Johnson & Johnson baby powder sold in Australia will no longer contain talc — what’s the new ingredient?

Johnson & Johnson has announced it will stop selling talc-based baby powder in Australia in 2023, as it transitions its popular, but controversial, global product to a cornstarch base.

In a statement to the ABC, a company spokesperson said while its talc-based range would be discontinued globally, cornstarch-based powder was already being sold in Australia.

“As part of a worldwide portfolio assessment, we have made the commercial decision to transition to an all corn starch-based baby powder portfolio,” it said.
