The New Beauty Queens on the Block: Solid Cosmetics
A waterless hair mask, a foundation stick or an eyebrow soap – solid cosmetics are on trend. They save weight and packaging and do not need preservatives. Here, we present our compact innovations for skin and hair care.
Waterless, Light and Much Lower on Packaging
Water is the most important ingredient in many care products. This inflates the volume of the packaging and makes transportation unnecessarily expensive. Water is also a luxury in many regions of the world.
The new solid, waterless cosmetics reduce the ecological footprint of beauty products. They also have many advantages for travelers: they are easier to carry than tubes and bottles. You can put them in your carry-on baggage. And since they do not contain water, they go much further.
The Challenge: Formulation
In view of all the advantages, why don’t more manufacturers offer a waterless range? Because users of solid products expect them to show the same properties as their water-containing counterparts.
This challenge is met by our new BELSIL® based waterless formulations. They open the doors for you to a growing market. From a simple body oil to cutting edge products such as a foundation stick or shampoo bar, BELSIL® silicones open endless possibilities.
Waterless Skincare – Adventures for the Senses
Promoted by influencers. Praised by beauty magazines as sustainable alternatives: waterless skincare products. But solid cosmetics often lack that certain something. For example, waterless products may often lack a certain suppleness, smoothness or dryness after absorption.
During the pandemic, our personal care specialists have experimented with the BELSIL® brand and developed waterless product innovations. These new formulations are by no means inferior in their properties to emulsions and oils. Except that the products are delivered as compact sticks or lollipops.
See for yourself what formulations even our developers are most enthusiastic about:
Luxury Body Balm
Rich nourishment for dry and stressed skin. After application, it leaves a silky soft feeling. Ideal for people on the move.
BELSIL® REG 1102, BELSIL® CDM 3526 VP, BELSIL® CM 7026 VP, BELSIL® PDM 20
Verena Lirk, Lab Technician at WACKER:
“You can’t always carry a bottle of body lotion with you. But if you have dry skin and a busy schedule, it’s very practical to have a small stick of body balm in your handbag. It provides intensive moisturization. I can give my damaged skin the care it needs whenever I want.”
Sun Protection Stick
Practical sun protection when you’re on the move. The stick protects sensitive skin areas. And feels light and pleasant on the skin.
BELSIL® eco REG 1102, BELSIL® CDM 3526 VP, BELSIL® CM 7026 VP, BELSIL® eco TMS 803
Dr. Tassilo Habereder, Head of Technical Marketing at WACKER:
“I like this preparation a lot, especially for my children. The sun protection stick is free of preservatives and you can just slip it into your coat pocket. And the best thing about it is that it doesn’t smear into your eyes. So you can apply it without fuss or tears.”
Warm DIY Hot Face Mask
Facial mask for damaged skin. No preservatives, Feels very light on the skin.
BELSIL® REG 1103 B, BELSIL® CDM 3526 VP, BELSIL® DMC 6038, BELSIL® W 3230
Rebecca Felsing, Lab Technician at WACKER:
“It was challenging to develop a solid facial mask that easily dissolves in water and at the same time creates a pleasant skin feel. The key component is the new hydrophilic elastomer gel BELSIL® REG 1103 B. By absorbing water, it provides the facial mask with an outstanding sensory profile.”
Cover and Care – Foundation Serum
An easy-to-handle luxury foundation for a glamorous look. Just one drop freshens up your face.
BELSIL® WO 5000, BELSIL® REG 1102, BELSIL® PDM 20, BELSIL® TMS 803, BELSIL® DM 100, BELSIL® DM 0.65
Eva-Maria Bienert, Technical Administrator at WACKER:
“Our Foundation Serum acts as both foundation and care – ideal for mature skin. The biggest problem with the formulation was to prevent pigment deposition. Commercial formulations have to be shaken before use. We solved this with the sugar-modified silicone fluid BELSIL® WO 5000. It acts as an emulsifier. So the pigments do not deposit so easily.”
Firm & Fabulous – Foundation Stick
For when you want a quick touch-up. So that your foundation looks instantly fresh again. Waterless.
BELSIL® CDM 3526 VP, BELSIL® CM 7026 VP
Natali Varbarbut, Head of Technical Center, WACKER:
“I’m responsible for technical marketing of personal care applications for WACKER in Istanbul. In this position, I meet a lot with customers. A perfect foundation is essential for me. The Foundation Stick gives me a flawless complexion again in an instant. When I’m at home and have more time, I use the stick for contouring.”
Even Skin – Primer Stick
Optimum preparation for make-up. The Primer Stick conceals pores and wrinkles, while also moisturizing without feeling sticky – for a silky-soft skin feel.
BELSIL® REG 1103 B, BELSIL® CDM 3526 VP, BELSIL® CM 7026 VP
Tobias Franzke, Lab Technician at WACKER:
“Foundation primers are essential for a flawless complexion. To apply the primer, just briefly stroke the stick over your face. In contrast to the simple application, it was challenging to formulate. The stick was required to glide smoothly over the skin. On the other hand, a solid consistency and thermal stability were needed. With BELSIL® REG 1103 B, we succeeded in satisfying all these requirements at once.”
Give Me Shape – Eyebrow Soap
Fast drying, transparent, non-sticky gel for eyebrow styling. It provides structure and volume in an instant. The perspiration-resistant formulation ensures it is long lasting.
BELSIL® P 1101 and BELSIL® PF 100
Damla Yilmaz, Lab Assistant at WACKER:
“I got married recently. And I naturally wanted to look stunning on my wedding day. Our new Eyebrow Soap, which I developed myself, was just what I needed. I could accent my eyes and so give more expression to my face as a whole. I received many compliments for my radiant appearance.”
Solid Hair Care that Can Become a Favorite Brand
Solid shampoos and conditioners are the new beauty trend. They require neither plastic packaging nor preservatives. What isn’t so well known is that developing such products in high quality requires a great deal of time and patience.

DIY Feel-Good Hair Mask
It looks like a lollipop, but instantly transforms into a hair mask that can be washed out. The hair becomes glossy again. The easy combability reduces further hair damage.

Our Conditioner Bar with BELSIL® CDM 3526 VP silicone wax fills this gap. The new product provides the hair with natural suppleness. After washing, it is wonderfully easy to comb.”
