Magnesium Hydroxide is used as an additive in formulations and acts as an absorbent or as a pH adjuster. It is a fine, white and an odorless powder.
Magnesium Hydroxide is soluble in oil and slightly soluble in water.
- Has effective oil-absorbent properties binding the oil on skin and from inside the pore lining
- Widely used as filler and texturizer
- Can be used to neutralize acids (pH < 7.0) but reacts only slowly. Cannot increase the pH further in products with a pH > 7.0.
Use: Typical use level is 0.2-1.5% when used as pH adjuster. When used as absorbent, filler or texturizer, it can be used at up to 30%. For external use only.
It is recommended for use in bath products, shampoos, shaving products, skin care, and other general care items.
