Magnesium Hydroxide Pastes and Gels

Like aluminum hydroxide, magnesium hydroxide is a typical antacid active. Both are very often combined, offering a good neutralizing and pH buffering effect and compensating their side effects. It is also used as a laxative active (milk of magnesia).

We provide a wide range of magnesium hydroxide pastes and gels varying in assay and viscosity to meet your formulation needs.
