"from Natural Beauty at Home by Janice Cox. Stearic acid is a white, waxy powder obtained from animal fats and oils. It is frequently used in making candles, soaps and cosmetics and gives stiffness to creams and acts as an emulsifier to ensure the oil and water stay combined. Janice Cox suggests beeswax as a substitute if you cannot find it."
