Magnesium Aluminum Silicates

Magnesium Aluminum Silicate is a complex silicate compound that have a large size molecule, it is purified, refined and micronized processing to a powdery, that is used to improve the texture and function of industries formulas, especially in personal care, cosmetic, paint & pigment industries. Magnesium Aluminum Silicate UNICARB MAS-5000 is our production with special design which has white superfine powder, tasteless and odourless, soft and smooth.

A primary function of Magnesium Aluminum Silicate MAS-5000 is a viscosity-increasing agent, absorbent, anticaking agent, opacifying agent, and emulsion stabilizer. Therefore, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate is used in order to make a product less runny and easier to spread.

Absorbent – Magnesium Aluminum Silicate is classified as an Absorbent because it has the ability to absorb or soak up liquids. Due to this property, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate can also be used as an anticaking agent or to prevent clumping. By absorbing liquids, it prevents powder products from clumping together and helps other ingredients to apply more smoothly.

Colour – As an opacifying agent, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate can be added to clear or transparent cosmetic formulations to render them more resistant to visible light.

Stabilizer, Lastly, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate functions as an emulsion stabilizer. An emulsion is a mixture of liquid that doesn’t usually mix together, like oil and water. In order to prevent separation of the two ingredient types, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate is used. Magnesium Aluminum Silicate can stabilize both oil-in-water and water-in-oil emulsions at low concentrations.
