Magnesium Stearate Market: Introduction
Magnesium stearate is an inorganic chemical compound. Its molecular formula is Mg(C18H35O2)2. Magnesium stearate is formed by the reaction of sodium stearate with magnesium salts or by reacting magnesium oxide with stearic acid. Sodium stearate employed in manufacturing magnesium stearate, which is derived vegetable stearic acid. Magnesium stearate is soap scum & magnesium stearate consisting of two equivalents of stearate and one magnesium cat-ion (Mg2+). Magnesium stearate is a white, water insoluble powder. It is considered to be safe for human consumption at levels below 2500 mg/kg per day. Magnesium stearate has characteristics such as softness, insolubility in solvents, and low toxicity.
