Stearic Acid

Hey there everyone.

Recently my skin has become almost completely clear, so I've taken this time-out to change some products around and perfect my regimen.

So far I've picked out a great product for almost every step of the regimen except a moisturizer.

I've been using Vaseline Intensive Care Moisturizer which seems to get the job done. The problem is that one of this moisturizers main ingredients is Stearic acid. Recently I've read in a number of skin care articles that Stearic acid is a common skin irritant and will usually aggravate and cause outbreaks of acne.

I have 2 questions:

What are your takes on Stearic acid?


What moisturizer would you recommend for guy with fairly dry skin? (Preferably a product available in Australia).
