Happy Summers y’all! With the onset of summers, it’s time to start using dusting powders to stay sweat-free and smell fresh all day. And if you like using natural skincare, then your dusting powder has to be natural too, right?

But sadly, most dusting powders in the market are made with talc. Talc is a soft, mineral-based white powder used in cosmetics for its great moisture-absorbing capabilities. However, talc can often be contaminated with asbestos, a carcinogen.

So we need to opt for a dusting powder that is certified free of asbestos by the manufacturer(rare to find) or go for a natural dusting powder instead.

Natural dusting powders are made with ingredients like arrowroot powder and cornstarch which help absorb sweat. And unlike talcum powder, the fragrance is derived from herbs and essential oils.

This also offers extra benefits like fighting acne, soothing your skin and providing a cooling sensation. And yes, natural dusting powders are safe to use on your baby too.

Where to Find Natural Dusting Powder in India?

The most economical choice is to make your own natural dusting powder using kitchen ingredients. You can easily create an unscented DIY dusting powder at home using arrowroot powder and cornstarch along with some bentonite or kaolin clay( great for people who tend to sweat a lot).

And if you wish to add some fragrance to it, you can add grounded herbs and flowers like lavender, rose, chamomile, orange peel etc. Another option is to add essential oils but it can get tricky to use the right amount that is under the dermal limits. Here are some DIY beauty brands where you will find all these ingredients
