What is it?
Sodium Stearate is a thickener and emulsifier which comes from vegetable-based Stearic Acid. We use it in our soap or shampoo bar products to give them a harder texture.
Sodium Laurate is another Sodium Salt classed as a 'Soap', it allows ingredients to mix together well and helps the product to foam up.
Sodium cocoyl isethionate is another sodium salt classed as a soap, it is a great cleansing agent and alternative to SLS.
