Kaolin Electros USP, FDA-An exceptionally fine, bulky kaolin, passing all USP specifications and bacteria controlled to FDA Standards. This reversible colloid can be used internally, is free from mica, feldspar, iron, and alkali and is recommended for use in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries.

Kaolin Lion USP, FDA- This is identical to the Lion USP except that it is irradiated to eliminate micro-organisms. Chemical and physical properties are the same as Lion USP but more stringent bacteria standards are applied: 100 TPC, no known pathogens, Zero mold, and Zero yeast.
Kaolin Plus White-This is a white, natural, hydrated Kaolin. It provides good hiding and other valuable properties to many other industries at a reasonable cost.
