Stearic Acid

Stearic acid is a fatty acid that is derived from tallow or vegetable oil. Stearic is a very effective wax modifier that has been used in candle making for well over 150 years.

Stearic acid is used as a wax modifier to increase a candles whiteness, aid in mold release,helps impart opacity, in holding the candles shape of freestanding candles in the warmer months. Also it can be used in mottled candles in small percentages to minimize fragrance migration without greatly affecting the mottling. This is very effective in both container and freestanding mottled candles.
