$BELSIL<sup>®</sup> WO 5000

BELSIL® WO 5000 is supplied as an approximately 30 % active solution in Dimethicone. The silicone polyglucoside contained in this solution is a nonionic surfactant with an HLB of approximately 6 - 7.

  • INCI Dimethicone, Caprylyl Dimethicone Ethoxy Glucoside


This silicone polymer is synthesized using a renewable, natural, sugar-based component and is therefore in part rapidly biodegradable. Silicone polyglucosides are surface-active silicone surfactants known for their mildness and gentleness. These materials are typically not employed as primary surfactants as they do not produce a significant amount of foam on their own.

BELSIL® WO 5000 was designed specifically as a water-in-oil or water-in-silicone emulsifier for compositions comprising volatile silicones or non-polar organic fluids as the continuous phase. Water-in-silicone formulations are noted for imparting a soft and velvety feel to the skin and for their excellent spreading properties. BELSIL® WO 5000 is an excellent emulsifier for water-in-oil and water-in-silicone systems in Skin Care, Sun Care and Decorative Cosmetics.



The 'Best use before end' date of each batch is shown on the product label.
