well, that sucks.

Corn starch can lead to yeast infections and promote certain kinds of rashes. Guys can get yeast infections, too, and a fungal based UTI is hard to treat.
Cornstarch also feels weird. I'm not a fan of feeding yeast unless I'm making beer. No Corn starch for me.

I wonder what the perfume was? Talc is easy enough to buy in bulk.

Hi Foxroxsox,

I didn't know that. I had wondered about getting hold of some corn starch powered just to see what we might be in for, but I really don't like the nouns of a fungal UTI, so I'll give it a miss!

Let's hope someone else bring proper baby powder back to the market In the US & Canada, and that this doesn't spread to this side of the Atlantic!

It's almost summertime and I switch to corn starch base every summer. Also there are other manufacturers/private label brands too.

Definitely a sad day. The original j&j powder is one of my favourite and definitely one of the key things that trigger my memories of growing up

but, if the product isn’t safe, I can’t say that it’s the wrong decision for them.
