Stearic acid, or octadecanoic acid, is a common saturated fatty acid with the chemical formula C₁₇H₃₅COOH. The addition of “triple-pressed” denotes a more refined stearic acid that, when compared to double-pressed stearic acid, has a significantly lower iodine content.

Multiple studies have shown that products containing stearic acid may benefit a person's skin. Stearic acid is mainly used in the production of detergents, soaps, and cosmetics such as shampoos and shaving cream products.

Its properties as an emulsifier, emollient, and lubricant make it a popular choice for various applications. The ingredient helps lock in moisture and maintain skin hydration, making it a key component in many moisturizing creams, lotions, and facial products.
