100% Vegetable / Palm Derived, Cosmetic grade.

Adds silkiness & pearl to creams and lotions. Used in soapmaking to make a hard bar of soap. In a cosmetic wax the usage of the stearic will be about 3%.
Thickens and stabilizes lotion/cream formulations very effectively.
Stearic is used in water-in-oil emulsions, oil-in-water emulsions, and oil-based formulas.

In candles, Stearic Acid makes candles burn longer and increases melt point. Stearic is also a surfactant that allows the candle maker to blend in more fragrance for better cold throw and hot throw of fragrances. To start use 1 - 2 tbsp per pound, or about 6% by weight. Using more will also make the candle whiter and more opaque.

Melting Point: Approx 57.5 - 60?C or 135.5 - 140?F
Recommended Usage: 1-20% (depending on application)
Biodegradable. Store in cool, dry place.
