A client asked me why these were ingredients in an herbal formulation he was using. I coudn't answer at the time. I am guessing something used as a preservative? None of my herbal formulations use those two ingredients. These were more "mainstream" products. Can anyone help. I will be googling around to try and get some info. Thanks in advance.

I think the dicalcium phosphate might be used as a drying ingredient? Or to somehow keep the right consistency? Could also be a source of calcium. Not sure about magnesium stearate (except as a source of magnesium).

I just found my "Vegetarian Journal's Guide to Food Ingredients" while I was cleaning, and can give you more info.
Dicalcium phosphate is listed as vegan. It is a common food additive that has many functions, including regulating acidity in foods.
Magnesium stearate can be animal or plant derived, and may be used as a preservative, or as a substance which blends together ingredients which do not normally blend (like oil and water).
