  • Minerals Exploring Talc Center for Research on

    Does talc contain asbestos? The mineral talc can be found located with the mineral asbestos. Therefore, if mining sites are not properly tested and established when mining talc there is a chance of asbestos contamination. In 1976, the Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association, now known as the Personal Care Products Council, recommended all personal care products containing talc be tested

  • Is Talc a Mineral? Howard Fensterman Minerals

    There are other minerals such as limestone that can also take the shape of powder, but their touch is not as soft as talc. Indeed there is no other mineral in its amorphous form that can replicate the texture of talc. The softness of talc is credited to its physical and chemical properties. Talc is composed of sheet structures with perfect bond cleavages and very weak bond forces between the
