Magnesium stearate is recognized as physiologically safe. Therefore it is used by the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry to improve the free-flowing properties, and is added as anti-caking agents to powders. One of the principle uses of magnesium stearate is as a tablet excipient in pharmaceutical dosage forms. Thermostable magnesium stearate is used as a lubricant and release agent for the processing of thermosets and thermoplastics.
