70% of all Johnson’s Baby Powder Users are Adults
According to Bloomberg, sales of Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products generated an estimated $374 million in sales in 2014. Now, a new report from Bloomberg suggests that a vast majority of Johnson & Johnson talcum powder products are being used by adults, and thousands of women may be at risk of developing ovarian cancer due to regular talc use.
For years, J&J worked to cover up the harmful link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer for fear of tarnishing the reputation of flagship products like Johnson’s Baby Powder® and Shower to Shower®. These talcum powder products helped J&J launch their baby products division, which is currently worth nearly $2 billion.
Statistics show that in 2015, nearly 20% of American households reported using Johnson’s Baby Powder®, making it by far the most popular brand of baby powder in the country. Overall, Johnson’s baby powder products were used by nearly 1 out of every 4 American households in 2015.
The enduring popularity and success of Johnson’s Baby Powder® and Shower to Shower® helped J&J grow into a leading manufacturer of consumer products, medical devices and prescription drugs. Now, the link between talcum powder products and ovarian cancer is being exposed, and thousands of women are coming forward to seek compensation.
Since 2013, J&J has already spent over $5 billion to resolve legal claims against other defective drugs and medical devices that the company manufactured.
There are currently more than 1,200 lawsuits pending against Johnson & Johnson by women who regularly used talcum powder and developed ovarian cancer.
