BELSIL® EG 2 and BELSIL® REG 102 contain cyclopentasiloxane, a volatile silicone fluid widely used in cosmetics applications. It enhances skin emolliency, promotes faster drying and reduces tackiness. When applied, the cyclopentasiloxne evaporates. As a result, both products can readily modify the consistency and sensory effects on the skin.
BELSIL® EG2 was developed from a classic addition-curing silicone elastomer, while BELSIL® REG 102 is derived from a specialty silicone which is based on silicone resin technology.
The silicone resin elastomer combines the skin sensation produced by flexible cross-linked polymer with good film-forming properties of silicone resins. Containing silicone resin segments, BELSIL® REG 102 shows improved water and transfer resistance of cosmetic products and provides long wear benefits. The product helps to make lipsticks water-proof, prevents makeup from rubbing off easily on clothing, and reduces the wash-off sunscreens.
BELSIL® EG2, which does not contain silicone resin segments, is widely used for cosmetic products which are not required to meet high demands on water and transfer resistance. BELSIL® EG 2 is especially suited for skin-care creams such as BB & CC creams, eye shadows, and mascaras.

WACKER has been supplying chemicals to South Korea since the mid-1980s. In 1996, it set up its local subsidiary Wacker Chemicals Korea which is based in Seoul. Since early 2008, WACKER has been manufacturing VAE dispersions at its production site in Ulsan. The facility also operates a technical center which provides local support to customers and partners. In 2010, WACKER acquired Lucky-Silicone, a South Korean brand for silicone construction sealants. In early 2012, WACKER completed the expansion and relocation of its technical labs and offices to a new regional competence center near South Korea’s capital Seoul. The competence center brings together R&D activities, application technology and the WACKER ACADEMY, a training facility that focuses on silicone and polymer applications.
