Magnesium Stearate BP
Magnesium stearate is the chemical compound with the formula Mg(C18H35O2)2. It is a soap, consisting of salt containing two equivalents of stearate (the anion of stearic acid) and one magnesium cation (Mg2+). Magnesium stearate is a white, water-insoluble powder.
It is used as a release agent and as a component or lubricant in the production of pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Magnesium stearate is often used as an anti-adherent in the manufacture of medical tablets, capsules and powders. In the creation of pressed candies, magnesium stearate acts as a release agent and it is used to bind sugar in hard candies such as mints.
