Usage: This is a versatile product, with uses that are only limited by your imagination. One not that common, although important use includes using talcum powder for the inside of your thighs when wearing a skirt or a sarong. Avoiding the sticky feeling in warm and moist summers.

Dangerous: Some talcum powders have a poisonous ingredient called boric acid. Pediatricians have recommended against the use of talcum powder because of the risk of aspirating (breathing) talc particles into the lungs.
