Stearic Acids Product Applications

stearicStearic Acid also called octadecanoic acid, is one of nature’s most common long chain of fatty acids and can be derived from many animal and vegetable fats and oils. It is a waxy solid product, whose name comes from the Greek word stear, which means tallow. The term stearate is applied to the salts and esters of stearic acid.

Commercially “Stearic Acid” is offered in various grades, with varying amounts of Palmitic and other Fatty Acids included. Stearic acid is widely used as a lubricant and as an additive in industrial preparations. It is used in the manufacture of metallic stearates, pharmaceuticals, soaps, cosmetics, oil pastels, plastics and food packaging. It is also used as a softener, accelerator activator and dispersing agent in rubbers.

Glacial Oceanic Clay is a mineral rich clay found uniquely in the province of British Columbia. The clay, deposited as sediment in the ocean, is enriched with beneficial phytoplankton. It is a totally naturally sourced product which is scooped then dried naturally by Ironwood Clay Company in Canada. Glacial Oceanic clay rests beneath a blanket of humus and is constantly refreshed by the ocean. This precious material is collected with every precaution taken to ensure that the pristine site is preserved forever. The Clay is harvested with zero ecological footprint.

A superior product with impressive results - hydration up, sebum and oil down with significant average of 95% in skin surface sebum after application of Glacial Oceanic Clay on face. The skin feels comfortable and moist. The osmotic power of the clay pulls moisture up from deep inner tissues to hydrate the surface of the skin and also cleans the skin without dehydrating it. Glacier Oceanic Clay is a must for open-pored, acne-prone skin types. It also has a therapeutic effect on eczema prone skin and calm down sensitive skin.
