Stearic Acid is an organic fatty acid present in vegetable fats and oils. It complements other fatty acids and provides a versatile texture. Stearic acid helps harden products like candles and soap bars. It can be found in several cosmetic products, including shaving foam, facial cleansers, body washes, shampoos, and laundry detergents. 


It functions as a thickening in soap formulations, solidifying the composition and eliminating the thin, watery sensation of watered-down soaps.

• It extends the shelf life of the product.

• Remove excess oil, perspiration, and dirt
from the skin and hair.
• It enhances the end product's conditioning
characteristics while also acting as a
preservative, allowing it to last longer.
• when added to shampoo formulas, it acts
as a protective conditioner leaving hair
soft, light, and glossy.
• When added to lotion, it acts as
thickening agent, adding richness to the
finished product's texture.
• It also acts as a good hardener when
added to candle formulations. The harder
the wax, the longer the flame must work to
melt it, resulting in a longer-lasting candle.

Usage : 1.0 % - 5.0 % melted into the oil phase. The exact percentage depends on the desired result and requires testing.

• Prepare the oil and water for your
formulation separately.
Both should be heated in a double boiler.
• Add stearic acid to the oil phase,
accompanied by constant stirring.
• Blend both the phases using a mixer until
a nice texture obtained.
