Wacker, the Munich-based chemical company, is driving its growth in South Africa with a new, dedicated sales manager and renewed efforts to boost its visibility. Silicones, one of Wacker's specialities, have revolustioned product development in the personal care and cosmetics industry, particularly in skin, hair and colour cosmetics applications.
