Simple Pure Fine Talc
Advantages: Cheap, unperfumed, effective.
Disadvantages: Can get everywhere if knocked over.
I have always felt that talcum powder was something saved solely for use on babies and the elderly, until I was looking for something to dry the moisture on my feet after swimming. No matter how hard I rubbed and tried to dry off my feet before putting my socks on I was always left with the difficulty of pulling my socks up over slightly damp feet. Then my friend suggested talcum powder.
Not wanting to smell like an infant or a granny I decided to look for something that was unperfumed. Happily I came across talc made by Simple. As we already know Simple make all there products unperfumed and uncoloured with no harsh chemicals.
This was exactly what I wanted and I happily paid a pound for my 250g tub.
The tub is white all over with the name Simple written in green, it states that it is kind to skin and is from the experts in sensitive skin, that it is natural goodness for healthy soft skin. It sounded good.
The next time I went for a swim I popped the tub in my bag to use after. When I had had enough of flopping up and down the pool I got out and showered and then proceeded to dry myself. As usual the air in the changing rooms was very damp and not at all conducive to getting dry. I dried my feet off as best I could and then opened the talc by twisting the green cap round till the holes lined up and talc could come out when I tipped the tub upside down. The talc plops out of the holes in the lid, it is not a smooth action and it took a couple of shakes to get enough talc in my hand to rub on my feet.
When rubbing the talc on I found it to be very smooth and soft. It was also unperfumed as promised. With a quick rub around my foot and between my toes all trace of moisture was eliminated, I could slide my sock on easily and my foot felt smooth and dry. I quickly did the same with the other foot.
I now use the talc whenever I have been swimming, as well as using it on my feet I rub a small amount in my knee and elbow joints. The talc does not irritate at all, I have had no adverse reactions to it and will happily continue to use it. I have had my 250g tub for nearly a year and it is still over half full even though it has been used most weeks..
On the back of the talc tub is a warning to keep powder away from children's mouths and noses. I can imagine that if the talc was puffed into the face of a baby or small child it would make it hard for him/her to breathe.
As the talc is unperfumed I think it would also be suitable for men to use. The talc contains no products derived from animals and the packaging is fully recyclable.
Thank you for reading.
