Perfect Consistency

Successful care products need effective active ingredients and a capable carrier in the form of a cream or lotion.

The consistency determines not only how we perceive the appearance and sensory effects of a care preparation, but also how we assess its effect. Is a lotion or cream perceived as rich, or does it have a certain lightness?

Creams and lotions that appear rich often require a lower viscosity during application so that they spread more easily. Silicones from WACKER allow you to adjust the rheological profile of your skin care and cosmetic products to requirements.

BELSIL® elastomer gels help you shape the consistency of skin care and cosmetic products.
