Hello, I am a student at a High School in Washington State. In my chemistry class we are currently doing research paper on a manufactured product. I wanted to know why Kaolin is used in medication and also in other products such as dishwear? What are the medical uses of kaolin? Is it safe to use? How can it become a medication or a product to produce a container? Thank you for your time.

Hello, Nancy! How are you? Good luck on your project!

There are actually many substances that are used in foods, medicines, and other things we ingest, as well as being used in non-edible products, so this isn't the only one.

Kaolin is basically a type of clay that is essential to the manufacture of china and porcelain. However, in people, it is used to treat diarrhea and cholera. It can also be used to treat soreness and swelling inside the mouth from radiation treatments, though for medical uses, it is often combined with other products. In powdered form, it can also be used to dry and soften the skin.

The plain and simple explanation is that just because a substance is used in some things that aren't edible, that doesn't mean that the substance itself is toxic.

Talc, which is often used in many powders, such as baby powder, it also used in medications. It is essential to forming some pills.

Is there anything else I can help with?
