I just want to verify something. I have finally found several shaving cream formulas requiring Tea Stearate added to the oil phase. Creating Tea Stearate isn't discussed from what I can find. I found one source that indicates that it is created with triethanolamine, stearic acid and H2O. Can I assume that this is correct and process it as such until all the water has evaporated and the Tea Stearate remains? How much H2O should I use?
Thanks for your assistance!
