    Please note that the American Cancer Society has said that some natural talc is formed with asbestos, and as such is a carcinogen. Asbestos containing talc is no longer used in the US, since the 70s, but this doesn't protect you from making it yourself.

    "Talk"? It's actually spelled "Talc"!
