How Baby Bee Dusting Powder Works
Kaolin and slippery elm bark in this baby powder absorb wetness and relieve chafing and prickly heat. This 100% talc-free formula uses cornstarch, instead, to keep baby's skin soft. Phthalate- and paraben-free.
Corn Starch: Zea mays. Derived from the corn plant, this highly absorbent substance absorbs both moisture and oils. It produces a soft, soothing feeling in face masks , and is added to creams and lotions to help them spread on the skin more easily.
Safer Dusting Powder for Babies
Talcum powder is a decades-old solution for absorbing moisture and preventing friction between baby's bottom and the diaper. Talc is usually made up of a combination of finely ground minerals, like zinc stearate and magnesium silicates, as well as other silicates. The size of particles is so small that they are both easily carried in the air like dust and can reach even the smallest areas of the lung if inhaled. Talc is a suspected carcinogen and creates irritation that may cause the production of nasal and lung tumors.
That is why Burt's Bees created our dusting powder with cornstarch, natural clay and finely ground flowers, instead of talc. Our natural dusting powder poses no such danger.
