Product Description

Triple Pressed Stearic is used as a wax modifier to increase a candles whiteness, aid in mold release and helps impart opacity. Stearic acid will also aid in holding the candles shape of freestanding candles in the warmer months. Depending on the melt point of the paraffin wax it will either raise the melt point or decrease the melt point. We suggest starting at 5% (1 oz. per pound or 3 tablespoons) usage in paraffin waxes and increase the percentage when necessary to achieve the properties and look desired.

Stearic can also be used in mottled candles in small percentages to minimize fragrance migration without greatly affecting the mottling. This is very effective in both container and freestanding mottled candles. It is suggested you start by adding 2-3% by weight to your paraffin wax; higher percentage usage can inhibit the mottling.
