This simple formulation base yields clear sticks at up to 1% fragrance when a freshly produced, high quality grade of glycerin is utilized. Sodium Stearate OP-200V delivers a higher stick solidification (set) point than Sodium Stearate OP-100 V. Increased Spectrasolv® DMDA and fragrance levels reduce stick set point.

|3||When batch is again completely clear, correct for any water loss and commence very slow cooling.|
|4||Stop cooling at least 10°C above batch solidification point and fill product into containers.|
|5||NOTE: Triethanolamine is added to fully neutralize free fatty acid remaining in the sodium stearate.|
