How are stearic acid beads made?

The production process of stearic acid beads is an intriguing and meticulous journey that begins with the careful selection of high-quality raw materials. Palmitic acid and stearic acid are obtained from natural sources such as vegetable oils.

During the production process, palmitic acid and stearic acid are precisely blended in the correct proportions, resulting in the unique composition of stearic acid beads. Subsequently, the beads undergo a forming process, acquiring their distinctive spherical structure. After careful inspection for consistency and purity, the stearine beads are packaged and ready for use in various applications.
