We study categories of algebras (for a given signature) constructed from arbitrary categories with specific finite products. We show how a left adjoint may be utilized to construct an initial algebra satisfying a given set of equations. Finally, we give a condition under which satisfaction of equations is independent of the set of variables considered.
