Sodium stearate is safe
Sodium stearate is a naturally-occurring saturated fatty acid with the chemical formula C17H35CO2Na. It can be derived from several sources, including coconut and palm oils. Depending on its application, it can be used as an emulsifier, dispersant, gelling agent, stabilizer, binder, and viscosity modifier.
It is commonly used in soaps, shampoos, cosmetics, and food products as an emulsifier, surfactant, and thickener. It also lubricates surfaces, helps create thick, luxurious foam, and prevents the separation of oil and water-based ingredients.
In addition to its emulsifying, dispersing, and gelling properties, sodium stearate is an excellent hardener and stabilizer for soap and deodorant bars. It also provides the structure and durability needed to ensure a long shelf life.
It is a natural ingredient with a long history of safety and use in personal care products. It is Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) by the FDA and has been approved by the European Food Safety Authority.
There are certain groups of people who should avoid sodium stearate as it may contain gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. Millions of people follow a gluten-free diet due to celiac disease or other health reasons.
As a result of this, we provide a vegetable-based version of sodium stearate to our customers. This product is derived from plant oils and is 100% vegan, so it is free of GMOs. This is a great option for customers who are concerned about avoiding gluten, as it has similar properties to the tallow-derived version of sodium stearate.
