Item Description

Hystrene® 5016

Food Grade Commercial Stearic Acid


Hystrene® 5016, Food Grade NF/USP

Highest quality stearic acid, bright white color in flake form. Stearic acid is commonly used in soap making to thicken creams and lotions and also helps in making soaps and candles more hard. Stearic acid is made from animal fats, vegetable oils and tallow.

When used with candles, the increased firmness is good for maintaining shape. Stearic acid helps increase the melting temperature of the wax so the candle will maintain shape in hot summers.
