Magnesium Aluminum Silicate
VEEGUM® R is the original and most widely used grade. VEEGUM® R is USP/NF Magnesium Aluminum Silicate Type IA. VEEGUM® clays are used as nonmigratory binders in tablets, sticks, and pressed cakes. They do not migrate to the product surface during drying, thereby ensuring uniformity and the desired level of hardness, rub- off, and color value. They also function as low-bulk disintegrants in pharmaceutical and industrial tablets, particularly in massive tablets where the active ingredient makes up the major weight and bulk of the composition.
VEEGUM® R is used in all types of cosmetics and personal care products. Some of these applications include creams, lotions, shampoos, eyeliner, mascara, liquid foundations, skin treatments and hair conditioners.
