Top five talcum powders in the market

Talcum powder is something all of us have grown up with. In a tropical country such as India, it is an item of necessity. No matter how far back you think, you will always have images of talcum powder on your dresser. It is a staple item in the entire country.

Talcum powder is made from talc, a mineral consisting of magnesium, silicon and oxygen. As a powder, it absorbs moisture and helps cut down on friction, making it useful for keeping skin dry and preventing rashes.

There are many brands of talcum powder available in the market. Here, we take a look at the top five brands.
