It doesnít matter anymore because you canít buy it (at least not at a reasonable price, and Iím not willing to spend $7 for a 6oz bottle of talc on eBay).

Bummer, talc is literally the only thing that worked for me and I have some pretty serious psoriasis.

Try Alibaba. I'm sure you can get 1000 bottles for only $2 per 6 oz bottle there! Or something...

I lament the "cancelling" of talc, as well. Back in the day, you could get a huge bottle of the stuff for about 49 cents at every local drugstore chain.

Probably never arrive. I ordered some used power supply fans from an eBay seller in China and itís been sitting in customs for over a month.
