Stearic Acid

I make oil and water play nice, so they don’t separate: I help create creams, moisturisers, and other rich formulas.

Technical Term
Stearic Acid
Ingredient Class
Supportive ingredient

I help make formulations their best and most effective

I help stabilise creams, moisturisers, and other products that contain oil and water.

How I'm made

I’m derived from stuff like palm and coconuts.

How I work

I’m an emulsifier, which is a fancy way to say that I stabilise mixtures that contain oil and water (so they don’t separate). Those ‘mixtures’ include most creams and lotions: I make sure they look smooth while they help keep your skin feeling awesome. I’m a major component of cocoa and shea butter.
