Baby powder was the impetus for documentary filmmaker Phyllis Ellis - she used it all over, every day for 20 years. Unlike many of the women in her film, Ellis isn't fighting for her life because of talc exposure but she used the ongoing class-action lawsuit against Johnson & Jonson as her lens to tackle the lack of regulation in the beauty industry. She shares her three-year journey of research and interviews with scientists, lawyers, advocates, regulators, politicians, a dynamic whistleblower, survivors and women who have lost their lives.
