Wikipedia SummaryCalcium stearate is a carboxylate of calcium, classified as a calcium soap. Production and occurrence == Calcium stearate is produced by heating stearic acid and calcium oxide: 2 C17H35COOH + CaO → (C17H35COO)2Ca + H2OIt is also the main component of soap scum, a white solid that forms when soap is mixed with hard water. Unlike soaps containing sodium and potassium, calcium stearate is insoluble in water and does not lather well. Calcium stearate is used as a flow agent and surface conditioner in some candies such as Smarties, jawbreakers and Sprees. In paper production, calcium stearate is used as a lubricant to provide good gloss, preventing dusting and fold cracking in paper and paperboard making.
