Thickening - Wacker Chemie AG


Create the right Texture

One of the key challenges facing cosmetic formulators is to give a cosmetic product the right texture and consistency. From how a product looks when first opened to how it feels when applied on the skin, the texture of a skin-care product is vital to its market acceptance. Wherever formulations need thickening, or lotions and creams need viscosity control, you can rely on WACKER silicones and silicas to deliver the desired effects.

  • HDK® pyrogenic silicas are available in various polarities and make it possible to fine-tune a formulation’s viscosity.
  • Silicone waxes such as BELSIL® CM 7026 VP are structural components ­providing the right balance between beneficial sensory parameters and thickening of the formulation.
