Global magnesium Stearate market trend 2022-2027 What is Magnesium Stearate used for? by Newsjapanblogaward

Susano Paper and Pulp, the Brazilia-based company that is the world's largest pulp producer, has warned that global pulp stocks have been falling sharply and are facing shortages that could lead to higher prices for necessities such as paper towels and toilet paper in the future.  

Timber trade between Russia and Europe, an important supplier of timber to Europe, has been completely blocked due to the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, inhibiting the magnesium Stearate in the future are still very uncertain.

What is Magnesium Stearate?
Magnesium stearate has the chemical formula Mg(C18H35O2)2. It is a soap consisting of a salt containing two equivalent stearates (the anion of stearate) and a magnesium cation (Mg2+). Magnesium stearate is a white, insoluble powder. Its applications take advantage of its softness, insolubility in many solvents, and low toxicity. It is used as a mold release agent and component or lubricant in pharmaceutical and cosmetic production. 
 
What is Magnesium Stearate used for?
Magnesium stearate is commonly used as an anti-adhesive in the manufacture of tablets, capsules, and powders. In this regard, the substance is also useful because of its lubricating properties, which prevent the ingredients from sticking to manufacturing equipment during the pressing of chemical powders into solid tablets; Magnesium stearate is the most commonly used lubricant for tablets. However, it may result in lower wettability of the tablet, slower disintegration, and slower or even lower dissolution of the drug.
Magnesium stearate can also be used effectively in dry coating processes.
In the production of pressed candies, magnesium stearate acts as a release agent and is used to bind the sugars in hard candies such as mints.
Magnesium stearate is a common ingredient in infant formula. 
 
Why is magnesium stearate used in tablets? 
Magnesium stearate is one of the most commonly used lubricant additives. Magnesium stearate can form a film on other tablet excipients, resulting in prolonged-release time, decreased hardness, and increased disintegration time. 
 
What are the side effects of stearic acid?
Skin irritation. 
Severe eye irritation. 
Severe eye injuries. 
Respiratory allergy. 
 
Is magnesium stearate natural or synthetic? 
Magnesium stearate is a synthetic additive used to lubricate finely ground herbs into capsules or tablets and fill the remaining space inside the capsules. It is synthesized by adding magnesium ions to stearic acid. Stearic acid is found naturally in plants such as cottonseed oil, canola oil, and palm oil. Although stearic acid is naturally occurring in nature, magnesium stearate is not. It is synthesized in the laboratory through fractionation, bleaching, and deodorization.
 
What is stearate? 
Stearic acid (SA), sometimes called octadecanoic acid, is a saturated long-chain fatty acid.  It is found in humans, animals, and some plants. 
It appears as a waxy, yellowish-white solid substance. 
 
What is stearic acid used for?
Making soaps and detergents (one of the most commonly used methods worldwide) 
Improve the efficacy and texture of detergents, lotions, and skin/hair care products, including shampoos and conditioners 
Make makeup/make-up 
Stabilize the texture of shaving cream and lubricant 
Manufacturing detergents, household cleaners, and textile softeners 
Shape and soften plastics 
To make a candle 
Make gum 
Make supplements/tablets 
 
The structure of stearic acid (an 18-carbon chain fatty acid) makes it useful for improving the texture and consistency of other products. It can help to make skin/hair/household products solid and improve their ability to mix with water (which is often difficult as oil/water doesn't mix well).
 
Is stearic acid a natural ingredient? 
Yes, that's why it's found in many natural skincare/beauty products in place of chemicals. 
SA is naturally found in animal fats, especially pork fats, and certain plants that contain fats/oils. These sources are heated and pressurized to separate and remove stearic acid. 
A process involving distillation, steam, and cooling is then carried out to produce the finished product of concentrated SA, which is usually a waxy substance. 
 
Is magnesium stearate a metal? 
Magnesium stearate is the most commonly used metal-salt boundary lubricant and contains two fatty acids (usually stearic and palmitic) and charged magnesium. It is relatively cheap, chemically stable, and has a high melting point and lubrication properties.
