Stearic Acid in Body Wash

Good day to everyone! I've been curious with Dove's body wash as it contains stearic and lauric acid. I was wondering if they are added as is or if they are saponified. 

I have lauric and stearic acid lying around and I was wondering if I can just add them to an existing body wash formula. Would there be any benefit from it? I have dry skin and the body wash will be for personal use.

I'm thinking of something like this

ASM: 11.3
pH - 4.5 to 5.0

Sodium Cocoyl Glycinate - 15%
CAPB - 10%
Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate - 4%
Sodium Cocoyl Methyl Taurate - 2%
PEG 7 Glyceryl Cocoate - 1%
Stearic Acid - 1%
Fragrance - 1%
Lauric acid - 0.5%
Potassium Sorbate - 0.3%
Sodium Benzoate - 0.3%
Tetrasodium EDTA - 0.1%
Distilled Water - q.s.
