Review: Be the first to review Stearic Acid

Stearic Acid is triple pressed, Kosher and Food Grade, the fatty acid from vegetable source is an excellent thickener and emulsion stabilizer for lotions and creams where Stearic Acid also improves the silkiness and glide of emulsions. Stearic Acid also makes an effective additive to improve the stiffness in stick products, soy candles, and the like. Often Stearic Acid is used to harden soaps, when neutralized Stearic Acid forms an in-situ soap (Sodium Stearate) which can be used as an emulsifier or cleansing agent.
