Overview of Magnesium stearate

What is Magnesium stearate ?

Magnesium Sterarate, also referred as magnesium octadecanoic a metal derivative synthesized from sodium stearate and magnesium. It is a white, fine powder with no sand; it is odorless and has a slick sensation when it comes in contact with skin. This powder is insoluble in water either ethanol or ether and is mostly used as an anti-adhesive agent, lubricant and glidant. It is especially suitable for the extraction of oils and extracts and the granules prepared offer excellent compressibility and fluidity. Used as a flow aid in direct compression. It can also be used as a filter aid, a clarifying agent, as well as a foaming agent, in addition to an effective suspending agent as well as a thickening agent for liquid preparations.

Application areas of Magnesium stearate:

1. Magnesium stearate has been used in medicine and in health products

Magnesium is a unique accessory material that can be employed as a film-forming material in preparations for liquids and solids. It can also be used as as a thickener for liquid suspension preparations, a suspension, and similar things. Magnesium stearate has no toxic components and is edible. It is also commonly utilized as an additive in health products. It is used primarily as a coating for tablets as it will help in the release of health products at precise times as needed and also provide lubrication. Active ingredient.

2 . magnesium stearate is a component of cosmetics

Magnesium stearate is used primarily in powdery cosmetics such as talcum powder, powder, powder, blush eye shadows, etc. It is able to improve the lubricity and adhesion properties of various powders for the skin, mainly covering, smoothing, and stretching. Adhesion, absorption, etc.

3. Magnesium Stearate can be used in food preparation.

Magnesium stearate is used primarily on pressed food products (tablet sweets such as milk tablets, nut chips, dietary fiber tablets honey tablets and others. ) This can increase liquidity, non-stickiness and lubricity as well as enhance the texture of the tablet. The gloss makes the tablets smooth and complete, and will require process addition.

Additionally, magnesium stearate is extensively used in coatings in rubber, plastics, textiles and other industrial areas.

It is a great lubricating and dispersion stabilizing analyte. It can also be used as an aid in filtering, as a clarifying agent, foaming agent, as well as thickener and suspending agent for liquid preparations.

Magnesium Stearate It is harmful for the human body

Magnesium stearate remains insoluble in organic solutions and water however it is readily soluble in hot acid and ethanol. After the body consumes magnesium-stearate, magnesium has a chemical reaction that reacts to gastric acids to create magnesium chloride and stearic acid. Magnesium chloride dissolves in water , which means that it will be able to flush it out via sweat and urine, and that stearic acid can be digested and absorbed by the body. Thus, magnesium stearate is not cause harm to human beings.
