SYTHETIC MAGNESIUM LITHIUM SILICATE

synthetic magnesium lithium silicate (hectorite)
magnesium lithium silicate product  description:
hatorite® hectorite, a synthetic layered silicate is a unique speciality additive that improves the performance of a wide range of industrial and consumer products making them more valuable to their users. there are two key areas of functional use for hectorite.
 
• as a rheology modifier-
hatorite® hectorite may be added to the formulation of many waterborne products such as surface coatings, household cleaners and personal care products. it will impart shear sensitive viscosity and improve stability and syneresis control.
 
• as a film former -
hatorite® hectorite is a film forming agent and is used to produce electrically conductive, antistatic and barrier coatings.
 
magnesium lithium silicate product range:
 
hatorite® hectorite is a colloidal synthetic layered silicate, two basic types are available: 
• gel forming grades
• sol forming grades
 
some definitions as they apply to hatorite® hectorite:
c o l l o i d - a very small particle, often a macromolecle, typically having dimensions <500nm
g e l - a high viscosity colloidal d i s p e r s i o n
s o l - a low viscosity colloidal dispersion

Magnesium Silicate Safety Information:

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Pyrophyllite as a color additive exempt from certification. Pyrophyllite is allowed to be used as a color in externally applied cosmetics and personal care products and drugs if it conforms to FDA specifications. It is not allowed to be used in products intended for the lips or the eye area. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reviewed the safety of Calcium Silicate and Bentonite and determined that they are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for use as direct food additives (Calcium Silicate at up to 2% of weight of food) and that Kaolin is GRAS for use as an indirect food additive.

Aluminum Silicate is approved for use in polymers with incidental contact with food. magnesium lithium silicate (antacid), Magnesium Trisilicate (antacid), and Kaolin (skin protectant, anorectal) are used in Over-the-Counter (OTC) drug products. The safety of Aluminum Silicate, Calcium Silicate, magnesium lithium silicate, Magnesium Silicate, Magnesium Trisilicate, Sodium Magnesium Silicate, Zirconium Silicate, Attapulgite, Bentonite, Fuller's Earth, Hectorite, Kaolin, Lithium Magnesium Silicate, Lithium Magnesium Sodium Silicate, Montmorillonite, Pyrophyllite and Zeolite has been assessed by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel. The CIR Expert Panel evaluated the scientific data and concluded that all seventeen ingredients were safe as used in cosmetics and personal care products.


The CIR Expert Panel determined that the data provided in the report were sufficient to assess the safety of Aluminum Silicate, Calcium Silicate, magnesium lithium silicate, Magnesium Silicate, Magnesium Trisilicate, Sodium Magnesium Silicate, Zirconium Silicate, Attapulgite, Bentonite, Fuller's Earth, Hectorite, Kaolin, Lithium Magnesium Silicate, Lithium Magnesium Sodium Silicate, Montmorillonite, Pyrophyllite and Zeolite. The CIR Expert Panel noted that issues of safety were similar among these ingredients and were broadly applicable to the two types of ingredients reviewed in the report: the silicates and the silicate clays/clay materials. These ingredients were generally non-irritating to the skin.


For the OTC uses for magnesium lithium silicate, Magnesium Trisilicate, and Kaolin

Bentonite (a Natural Hydrated Aluminium Silicate) is listed in the Cosmetics Directive of the European Union (Annex IV, Part I) as CI 77004, and may be used in all cosmetics and personal care products. When used as a color in cosmetic products in the European Union, this ingredient must be called CI 77004. Aluminum Silicate, Calcium Silicate, magnesium lithium silicate, Magnesium Silicate, Magnesium Trisilicate, Sodium Magnesium Silicate, Attapulgite, Fuller's Earth, Hectorite, Kaolin, Lithium Magnesium Silicate, Lithium Magnesium Sodium Silicate, Montmorillonite, Pyrophyllite, and Zeolite may be used in cosmetics and personal care products marketed in the European Union according to the general provisions of the Cosmetics Regulation of the European Union.
