Product Rating: 4.7/5 (As per 15 Customer Reviews)
Stearic Acid is an organic, fatty acid that is found in vegetable fats and oils. It works harmoniously with other fatty acids to support the skin and offers versatility in texture. Stearic Acid can also be used in the production of candles, cosmetics, shaving soaps, lubricants, and pharmaceuticals. When added to soap, this ingredient will produce a bar that is harder and that has a more stable lather.
INCI: Stearic Acid
Usage : 1.0 % - 5.0 % melted into the oil phase. The exact percentage depends on the desired result and requires testing.
Note: This Stearic Acid is derived from Palm Oil. It is not food-grade so has not been tested for Chick Edema Factor.
