Safety in our Products

To ensure you have peace of mind when using JOHNSON’S® products, we have spent the last two years reformulating our products. We’re proud to release improved formulas, which are phthalate and paraben free. We’ve excluded thousands of ingredients over the years based on new science and based on what you’ve told us is important to you.

Safety in our ingredients

There is a lot of information out there about talc, not all of it true, so we wanted to share some basic facts to keep you well informed.

  • Talc comes from rock deposits found all over the planet and is mined like many other valuable minerals, but only the highest-grade talc, meeting our purity specifications, is used for talcum powder

  • It is hypoallergenic, helps eliminate friction and is clinically proven to be gentle and mild for your baby’s skin.

  • Science, research, clinical evidence and 30 years of studies by medical experts around the world continue to support the safety of cosmetic talc.

I know what goes into the development of our products, the time, the giant team of experts, the care. Not just in selecting the best ingredients for babies, but the effort that goes into the whole process to meet the high standards we follow. That’s why I’ve always had JOHNSON’S® products in our home, both for myself and for my kids.
