Kaolin is a soft white mineral which has a large array of uses. It is most commonly found in the form of kaolin clay, a fine clay which was originally produced in China, which is why this clay is sometimes referred to as “China clay.” Among the many uses for this mineral are the paper industry, medications, skincare products, porcelain, and cosmetics. Sources of this mineral can be found all over the world, including the United States, China, Brazil, Australia, and parts of Eastern Europe.

The name comes from the Chinese “Gaoling,” a reference to a mountain which provided a source of the raw mineral. The Chinese used this mineral to produce their famously fine porcelain, and when European explorers were introduced to Chinese ceramics, many of them remarked on the delicate quality of Chinese ceramic work. This was made by possible by kaolin, a material that Europeans were not familiar with, and European ceramicists spent centuries trying to replicate the techniques used in China to produce porcelain.

Scientific Name(s): Kaolin , hydrated aluminum silicate
Common Name(S): Heavy or light kaolin, China clay, bolus alba, porcelain clay, white bole, argilla.

Kaolin has a range of industrial applications grouped into three main market areas: – Paper, ceramics and specialty minerals. Paper accounts for the majority of sales at around 70% of total sales. It is used in two distinct ways, as a filler between the paper fibres, to improve printing quality and as a coating, to enhance the surface properties of the paper.

Ceramics is the second most important sector, accounting for some 22% of total sales. It is used for the manufacture of sanitaryware, tableware, tiles, electrical porcelain and glazes. Fired brightness, strength and (in sanitaryware) rheological properties are the key parameters for these ceramic whitewares It is also used in refractories where it is of value for its high alumina content. Specialty applications include paint, rubber, plastics, adhesives and sealants and pharmaceuticals, where it is mainly used as a filler.

Kaolin is known to be the safest, most effective and most appropriate clay material for cleansing masks:

Kaolin is unlikely to cause any side effects. If however, you experience any worrying symptoms, which you think may be due to this medicine, discuss them with your pharmacist.

Toxicology: Because kaolin actively adsorbs a wide variety of substances to its surface, it should not be administered with drugs that may adhere (ie, digoxin, lincomycin, phenothiazines, etc). This is a particular concern when formulating new dosage forms, in that it must be assured that the kaolin diluent does not reduce the bioavailability of the active drug substance.
Kaolin is highly insoluble and is not absorbed systemically. Therefore, it is not generally associated with severe toxicity.

Inhalation of nonfibrous silicate compounds such as kaolin may predispose miners to pulmonary diseases.
Summary: Kaolin is a widely used natural mineral that finds its most common pharmaceutical application as an adsorbent in antidiarrheal preparations. Kaolin is believed to exert it effects by adsorbing toxins that may have initiated the diarrheal episode by providing bulk to the stool. Kaolin may adsorb certain drugs, thereby reducing their bio-availability.

Moderate Interaction Be cautious with this combination

  • Clindamycin (Cleocin) interacts with KAOLIN

    Kaolin might decrease how quickly the body absorbs of clindamycin (Cleocin), an antibiotic. But it probably doesn’t decrease the amount of clindamycin (Cleocin) that is absorbed.

  • Digoxin (Lanoxin) interacts with KAOLIN
    Kaolin might decrease the absorption and decrease the effectiveness of digoxin (Lanoxin), a heart medication. To avoid a potential interaction, separate digoxin (Lanoxin) and kaolin doses by at least two hours.
  • Quinidine interacts with KAOLIN
    Kaolin might decrease the absorption and decrease the effectiveness of quinidine (Quinidex), a heart medication. To avoid a potential interaction, separate quinidine (Quinidex) and kaolin doses by at least two hours.
  • Trimethoprim (Proloprim) interacts with KAOLIN

Kaolin might decrease the absorption and decrease the effectiveness of trimethoprim (Proloprim), an antibiotic. To avoid a potential interaction, separate trimethoprim (Proloprim) and kaolin doses by at least two hours.
