"Just a sprinkle away, keeps the odor away"... 

"Have you had your sprinkle today?"

That's the slogan of "Shower to Shower" baby powder from the Johnson and Johnson company, product owner at the time. 

Some woman were, and still are, sprinkling their vagina and other body parts with this powder... every day, as suggested. 

Have you ever heard that the Talc in baby powder causes cancer? Well, that's not a rumor. When this information was released back in the 1980's, the Johnson and Johnson company failed to include a warning on the products, to let their customers know.

Fast Foward to the present year of 2016, Johnson & Johnson finally hit their match. 

The company was ordered by a Missouri state jury to pay $72 million of damages to the family of a woman whose death from ovarian cancer was linked to her use of the company's talc-based Baby Powder and Shower to Shower for several decades.

NBC News --

In a verdict announced late Monday night, jurors in the circuit court of St. Louis awarded the family of Jacqueline Fox $10 million of actual damages and $62 million of punitive damages, according to the family's lawyers and court records. 
The verdict is the first by a U.S. jury to award damages over the claims, the lawyers said.
Fox, who lived in Birmingham, Alabama, claimed she used Baby Powder and Shower to Shower for feminine hygiene for more than 35 years before being diagnosed three years ago with ovarian cancer. She died in October at age 62.
Jurors found Johnson & Johnson liable for fraud, negligence and conspiracy, the family's lawyers said. Deliberations lasted four hours, following a three-week trial.
A lawyer for Fox's family, said Johnson &Johnson "knew as far back as the 1980s of the risk," and yet resorted to "lying to the public, lying to the regulatory agencies." 
Carol Goodrich, a Johnson & Johnson spokeswoman, responded: 
"We have no higher responsibility than the health and safety of consumers, and we are disappointed with the outcome of the trial. We sympathize with the plaintiff's family but firmly believe the safety of cosmetic talc is supported by decades of scientific evidence."
In October 2013, a federal jury in Sioux Falls, South Dakota found that plaintiff Deane Berg's use of Johnson & Johnson's body powder products was a factor in her developing ovarian cancer. Nevertheless, it awarded no damages, court records show.
Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc now owns the Shower to Shower brand but was not a defendant in the Fox case.
64 other women (and growing) have already filed their cases against Johnson and Johnson for causing their ovarian cancer.
Worried your baby powder is giving you cancer? 

Talcum is not only in "Shower to Shower" powder, almost all generic brands have this ingredient...but do have an alternative option. Read the ingredients and what kind of baby powder it is. Choose the Corn Starch option instead :)
