Sodium Stearate OP-200V is a vegetable-based Sodium Stearate, consisting primarily of the sodium salts of saturated C16 and C18 fatty acids, but also including a defined proportion of C20 and C22 fatty acids to increase the melt point and decrease the payout of hydroglycolic sticks made with it. Sodium Stearate OP-200V may find application as a gelling agent for deodorant and fragrance sticks, as a component of vegetable-based bar soaps, and as a viscosifier or emulsion stabilizer for other aqueous-based personal care products. Originally designed for Propylene Glycol-based deodorant sticks, it remains the preferred grade of Sodium Stearate for nonalcoholic sticks.  Typical use levels: underarm deodorants: 4 – 8%; bar soaps: 5 – 20%; emulsion stabilization: 0.5 – 1.5%.  INCI: Sodium Stearate
