• How to Make Your Own Baby Powder

    March 27, 2018 • BEAUTY, DIY RECIPES

    In light of recent court orders in the United States that have found that talc is potentially carcinogenic*, we have created our own DIY baby powder recipe using much safer ingredients of kaolin clay, cornstarch and arrowroot. These ingredients are soft, gentle, soothing, non-toxic and completely free from talc.

    Find the recipe to make our DIY baby powder below. It is really easy to make, just as effective, and most importantly, much safer.

    DIY Silky Smooth Baby Powder Recipe

    Ingredients

    Method

    1. Over a large bowl, put the powders into a sieve and shake it through. This should be done 3 times to ensure your powder becomes super soft and smooth.
    2. Pop into your desired shaker bottle.

    How To Use

    Use as you would any baby powder.

    Tip – To make a  scented version, add five drops each of mandarin and rose geranium essentials oils (or oils of choice). If adding essential oils, it’s important to sieve through again to ensure it’s clump free.

    Note: When using any new products on your baby or child, it’s important to patch test first.

    This recipe makes enough to approx. fill 1 x 120ml glass mason jar with shaker top. Or reuse an old one.

    *Talc is the softest mineral on earth, but talc deposits are often found near asbestos.  Until recently nearly all baby powder was made from talc and may have been contaminated with asbestos, leading to three U.S. jury verdicts linking regular use of J&J talcum powder to ovarian cancer.
