Tackiness

Pleasant Care

Your customers want care products that are quickly absorbed, are moisturizing and leave the skin with a pleasant feel. Sticky skin care products are a no no.

WACKER silicones help reduce stickiness. Formulate cosmetic products that are pleasant to the touch and leave the skin feeling nourished.

Tackiness is not only a major issue in skin care, innovative BELSIL® silicones also reduce tackiness in hairstyling products.
