Talc is a main ingredient in many face powders and is a great oil absorber, imo.

Although I have to be honest and say that I've never heard anyone crediting talc to clearing their acne. I can't imagine how it could do that, since it doesn't have any acne killing properties to it.

But anyway, I'm glad she feels that she has found something helpful.

I really wouldn't do this. Talcum powder is toxic if it gets inside of you, and the fine particles make it very easy for that to happen. It can irritate your lungs and it might even be cancer-causing. It should be used very sparingly, if it all, especially near the face and genitals.
