Application of magnesium hydroxide in cosmetics

Hebei Messi Biology Co., Ltd. stated that magnesium hydroxide has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, whitening, moisturizing, exfoliating and other functions in cosmetics. Due to its alkaline properties and mildness to the skin, magnesium hydroxide is often added to skin care products and cosmetics to absorb excess oil from the skin, soothe the skin and balance sebum secretion.

1. Antibacterial


Magnesium hydroxide is slightly alkaline and can neutralize acidic substances on the skin surface and reduce bacterial growth. By regulating the pH value of the skin to inhibit bacterial growth, it can be used as a raw material for making antibacterial cosmetics, sunscreen, skin cream and other cosmetic products. It has good moisturizing and antibacterial effects.

2. Anti-inflammatory


Magnesium hydroxide can reduce the activity of inflammatory cells and reduce inflammatory reactions such as redness and swelling. Choose a product containing an appropriate proportion of magnesium hydroxide and use it consistently for a long time to achieve good results.

3. Whitening


Magnesium hydroxide can promote the decomposition of melanin in the epidermis, thereby lightening dark spots. Choose a whitening product that contains the right amount of magnesium hydroxide and is suitable for your skin type.

4. Moisturizing


Magnesium hydroxide acts as a humectant, increasing skin’s moisture content and locking in moisture to prevent loss. Choose a product that has a stabilized form of magnesium hydroxide added to enhance its water-holding capacity.

5. Exfoliation


Magnesium hydroxide particles have a slight friction effect and can help remove dead skin cells for exfoliation purposes. Choose an exfoliating product containing magnesium hydroxide that is suitable for your skin type and use it after cleansing.
