Stearic acid is a naturally-occuring fatty acid. Can be used to add hardness to vegetable-oil-based soaps. Also works well as a thickener in creams and lotions.
Naturally occurring in cocoa and shea butters, stearic acid is a powerful emulsifier that is commonly found in creams, lotions and conditioners. It imparts a thin, protective layer over the hair and skin, helping to prevent damage from free radicals, and other environmental factors such as harsh cold, wind and sun. It works incredibly well in oil-based formulations, and as it is a naturally-occurring fatty acid, stearic acid is an excellent cosmetic ingredient for skin care, particularly mature, dry or problem skin. Often added at the solid phase of a cosmetic formulation.
Uses for stearic acid include but are not limited to:
- Body lotions & creams
- Shampoos & Conditioners
- Make up and sun care

Please note that stearic acid can occasionally have a pungent odor, however this does vary from batch to batch.</>
