Historical Examples of stearate
Ordinary starch, or talcum, or the stearate of zinc is suitable.The Eugenic Marriage, Vol 2 (of 4)

From the stearate of soda, it appears to be 104; and from that of lime, 102.
This separates the stearate, and leaves a nearly pure oleate of lead.Cooley's Practical Receipts, Volume II
The stearate of lead, by Chevreul, gives 109 for the atomic weight of the acid.
We may thus conceive how a small quantity of stearate or oleate of potash may resist the decomposing action of the soda salts.
