Potassium stearate is a lubricating compound with a variety of uses, including as an emulsifier and anticaking agent. It is derived from the fatty acid stearic acid, a byproduct of the saponification process of vegetable oils. The chemical is also used in cosmetics and as a base for textile softeners. In the soap-making and detergent-manufacturing industries, potassium stearate is the emulsifier of choice.

Aside from being a lubricant and emulsifier, potassium stearate is also known as a cleansing ingredient. This chemical is used in shaving creams and traditional bar soaps. However, its primary application is as a cleansing agent in shampoos and conditioners.

Some products that contain Potassium Stearate are the following: shampoos, conditioners, deodorants, lip glosses, makeup, perfumes, bath products, and shaving creams. These products are safe to use by pregnant women.

Although it has many uses, it is relatively unknown in the cosmetics and personal care industries. A small amount of it is found in a few skin care and hair care products, though it's not commonly included in those types of formulations.

The best part is that it is quite inexpensive and safe. For instance, it is authorized for use in organic food. Furthermore, it has a fatty odor, which helps keep water and oil-based ingredients from separating. Another use of the stearate is as a plasticizer in chewing gum base. Finally, it is a natural thickener in beverages, and is widely used in the manufacturing of rubber and paints.
