Magnesium Stearate

Posted on


INCI name: Magnesium Stearate

Magnesium stearate is a salt produced from stearic acid ie. magnesium salt of stearic acid. Since stearic acid is present in both animal and vegetable hard fats, it follows that magnesium stearate can have animal or vegetable origins.

It is a white powder, and is used as a base ingredient in makeup products such as eye shadow, face powder and powder blush, as the inclusion of magnesium stearate increases their adhesive qualities.
