Founded in 1987 in Barcelona (Spain), Lipotec is since July 2012 part of Lubrizol, a Berkshire Hathaway company.  The research, design and production of Lipotec are led by two main technologies always supported by in vitro and in vivo tests:

Molecular cosmetics – Peptides and other small synthetic molecules and biotechnological and botanical active ingredients

Delivery systems – Controlled release technologies for enhanced stability and bioavailability of the active ingredient


Since 2014, Lipotec and Active Organics, Lubrizol’s company leader in natural extracts and performance ingredients, merged as one team to provide a complete range of advanced active ingredients to the cosmetic industry.
