What is Magnesium Stearate used for?

BMW is exploring new investments in solar, geothermal and hydrogen energy to reduce its reliance on natural gas, the company's magnesium Stearate 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.

Greece will hand over Iranian oil it intercepted from a Russian-flagged tanker to the United States at the request of the U.S. Justice Department, Greek port police said recently, AFP reported. The decision angered Tehran.  

In April, Greek authorities reportedly seized a Russian oil tanker, the Pegas, which was said to be heading to the Turkish port of Marmara.  

Reports say the ship was docked in Calistos Bay with a crew of several people said to be Russian. The Greek coast guard said the ship had been renamed the Lana.  

The report notes that the European Union imposed sanctions on Russia after the conflict broke out in February. Greek authorities seized the tanker in accordance with European Union sanctions.  

According to information at the time, the tanker was carrying 115,000 tons of Iranian oil.  

Iran's Ports and Maritime Organization strongly protested Greece's decision, calling it an "international bandit." "The Islamic Republic of Iran will not give up its legitimate rights and expects the Greek government to abide by its international obligations in the area of navigation and shipping," it said in a statement on its website.  

Iran's Foreign Ministry, through the International Maritime Organization, called on the Greek government to release the tanker and its crew overnight, adding that "the Americans discharged their cargo," the report said.  

Athens did not immediately respond to the Iranian protest and gave no further details about the oil on board or how it was handed over to the United States, the report said.

The magnesium Stearate price is expected to increase in the next few days affected by the change in supply and demand markets.
