Discover the Surprising Health Benefits of Stearic Acid

What Is Stearic Acid?

Stearic acid is a natural substance containing fatty acids. Once you start looking for it, you’ll discover it in plenty of whole foods. In fact, stearic acid is the precursor to oleic acid. And oleic acid is one of the beneficial fatty acids that make up olive oil.1

There is a good chance you already have stearic acid in your pantry or linen closet. That’s because stearic acid is often used as a binder, thickener, and lubricant in certain foods and health products.2

You’ll also see stearic acid in your favorite chewing gum, baking ingredients, spices, and nutritional supplements.3

History Of Stearic Acid

How was stearic acid discovered? Well, in the early 1940s, certain natural materials were running low due to World War II. So, various industries took to producing synthetic products, like soaps.

These synthetic soaps, or detergents, were made with stearic acid. This was great, because soaps made with stearic acid had the same ability to clean as regular soap did. Stearic acid was also utilized in cosmetic products, like ointments, lotion, deodorant, and even shaving cream.4

Potential Health Benefits Of Stearic Acid

Stearates are among the most abundant saturated fats in the human diet. But, unlike other saturated fats, they don’t pose the same health risks when consumed.5

Stearates can make up a significant dose of the day-to-day diet since they’re present in all sorts of vegetable fats. Stearic acid has even been found to help support heart health.6
