For example, it helps your bars of soap and candles retain their shape, and helps keep body butters from melting in hot weather. As a surfactant, stearic acid is a powerful cleanser.

Respond to Stearic Acid & Wish List

Thank you for responding. I did heat and mixed thoroughly. But I will try another batch. Like I said, still new at this, perhaps I used too much. About the wish icon on top of your page (Heart) I tried that several times, but it did not want to save the products. I will try again, and let you know if it worked on not.

Hi, try heat to a higher temperature.

Please log into your account and it should save the items - it did for me. But let us know if not.

Stearic Acid.

I bought Stearic Acid. The powder did not mix smoothly and still a few grains in final product. Any directions how to use?
This is my 3rd time purchasing from Essentially Natural. Overall experience is fantastic. Delivery is so quick.
The only downside for me is that the online shop is way too addictive. I find myself every other day browsing.
Just a suggestion, if possible, add a wish list, so in the event I am ready to purchase again, I can go straight to wish list and purchase.
Overall - I am ecstatic and thank you for the free gifts.

Hi Harri, I'm not sure what product you were making, but stearic acid does need to be fully melted to work with otherwise it will be grainy (and also not work as it's supposed to). One usually melts it together with the oil phase ingredients.

We do have a wishlist feature :) It's the little heart icon on the products that you can click, and then if you click the heart next to your profile (top right hand corner), you will find all those products which you can add to your cart or even share the list.

Happy shopping!
