Magnesium salts of fatty acids are the magnesium salts of natural fatty acids. They are produced mainly from plant origin, but can also be produced from the fats of animals.

Many fatty acids and their counterparts are extracted using many levels of petroleum based chemicals including ether, hexane and tetrachloroethylene which is considered a known carcinogen.

Used in cake mixes and oven ready chips. Also used extensively in bread and wheat based bakery goods, which give the home baked taste. Used as grease thickeners in the lubrication industry and also form the basis for soaps and used in cosmetics to give the smooth, silky feel.
