Yes, it washes out easily, even the talc based ones.

You may have seen/heard some stuff about talc being unsafe, it was a suspected carcinogen in the 1970s. But after very thorough studies were done it was determined not to be a carcinogen. However the all-natural-police decided that even though is proven very safe that it should still be considered toxic. Hence you can only find super artifically fragranced versions (which I hate). Sigh. Oh well.

Cornstarch is a base for many of the "natural" powders, however be aware that cornstarch feeds yeast so should not be used if there is a yeasty rash/thrush.
