Sodium stearate is the sodium salt of stearic acid. It is one of the most widely used chemicals in industry. In the following, we will briefly introduce the applications of this material.

Product name: Sodium Stearate

Chemical formula: C18H35NaO2

What is Sodium Stearate?

This white solid is the most common soap found in many tires, latex paints and inks. On the other hand, it is a part of some food additives and food flavorings. Sodium stearate is a surfactant, purifier, emulsifier and viscosity control. It dissolves slowly in cold water.

This substance is used in the initial formulation of various degreasers. Used as a surfactant (like zinc stearate) to help solubility hydrophobic compounds in the production of oral sponges. The percentage of sodium stearate depends on the fat of the ingredients.
