Description

Wax Additive

Stearic Acid:

Stearic acid is natural and vegetable-based, and when added to paraffin wax it creates stronger, harder candles that release from moulds much easier. It contains no preservatives or additives and has been triple-pressed for purity. Most commonly, it is added to pillar candles. Add a minimum of 100g stearic acid to 1kg of paraffin wax and maximum of 300g to 1kg of paraffin wax, depending on the hardness of the candle you intend to produce. We don’t advise adding stearic acid to bees wax or soy wax.

Note that adding stearic Acid to wax can also influence fragrance absorption.

Own testing required at all times.
