Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Baby powder is an astringent powder used for preventing diaper rash, as a deodorant, and for other cosmetic uses. It may be composed of talc (in which case it is also called talcum powder) or corn starch. Talcum powder is harmful if inhaled since it may cause aspiration pneumonia or granuloma. Drugs such as cocaine are sometimes cut with talcum powder; it is also an ingredient in counterfeit pharmaceuticals. It is also present in some counterfeit food products as a bulking agent in order to give the appearance of a larger quantity than actually present.show more
