Video: A Message From Johnson & Johnson Chairman and CEO Alex Gorsky About Talc

Gorsky explains in this new video why Johnson & Johnson has remained confident in the safety of Johnson's® Baby Powder since its introduction to households more than a century ago.

For over 100 years, Johnson & Johnson has known that Johnson's® Baby Powder is made of the purest, safest pharmaceutical-grade talc on Earth.

In fact, studies of tens of thousands of women and thousands of men show that talc does not cause cancer or asbestos-related disease.

Meanwhile, decades of participation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other global regulators has continually proven the product to be asbestos-free.

In this new video, Johnson & Johnson Chairman and CEO Alex Gorsky explains why he remains confident in the product's safety—and committed as ever to consumers.
