INCI:Stearic Acid

Stearic acid is a fatty acid found in many plant and animal oils. Due to its molecular structure, it is widely used in cosmetics as an emulsifier and can also be found in soaps, body washes and shaving creams. Its soap-like quality enables it to penetrate the skin, providing emollient, skin-softening properties. It has become a primary choice for many bath & body manufacturers as it is used to emulsify, thicken, or otherwise bind and stabilise lotions and creams. It is particularly useful on cleansers as it allows for dirt and oils to be lifted from the surface of the skin by water. As Stearic acid is a waxy solid, it also helps to harden soap bars. This same property makes it useful for candles, adding firmness, a longer burn-time, and a white (opaque) smooth look. It also reduces fragrance migration in mottled candles and is used as a mould release for pillars and votives.

So far so good.

I have been using this in my cleansing bars to make them harder and it has worked well so far. Still have to play around with the percentages but it seems to be helping.
