Stearic Acid is a saturated long chain fatty acid with an 18-carbon chain, found in many animal and plant fats, and used in skin and hair care products as a fragrance ingredient, emollient and surfactant. One of its main uses is in the manufacture of soap. Stearic acid also helps to prevent the separation of products containing oil and water.
