Talc-Free Foot Powders for Natural Odor & Moisture Control

Talc, an ingredient found in a number of products including makeup and body powder, has become known for having potentially harmful effects on health. Fortunately, it really isn’t needed to make a foot powder work well. Since word spread that talc might not be the best for you, more and more brands are offering talc-free powders that use corn starch or zinc to help eliminate sweat and odor. Here, we did some research and curated a range of natural foot powders you can buy. In addition to featuring safe odor-busting ingredients, each one uses soothing essential oils like lavender, tea tree and lemon.
